Valentines On the Brain

Well I love Valentines and the older the better. I love Victorian ones but I especially love the cutsie children's cards from the 30's through 60's. My mother collects them. I recently finished tags for a Valentine Swap(see link at right) and sent them off. Now I can focus on this year's valentine paperdoll class that I will teach when I go to Fla in a few weeks. I think this one will be a garland of 3 dolls to hang up. Everywhere in blog land are lots of valentines and it makes me feel very creative. There will be more to come on the subject. Here are some pics of my tags! Have a great week.

Snowy Day

So I was supposed to work today but the load of snow last night prevented us from having the show tonight and I got to stay Home! I am still recovering from my trips and haven't gotten enough rest yet so I am very happy not to have to go anywhere. The snow is thick on the ground but not wet and clinging to the trees. It is still very pretty. I looked out the window and the sun was shining on this cardinal in the tree and it was so bright it was almost glowing. IT would have made an excellent pic if I was closer but this one is ok. Love red birds in the snow! I also finished making thank yous for Christmas gifts and now can write on them and mail them. I feel like I have accomplished a lot but dreaded craft room cleaning up is calling louder than ever. Hope everyone is warm and dry!
