For My Guys!

For anyone who doesn't know,
I have spent most of my adult life in a Frat house.
I am the only girl
(if I don't call myself a girl, who will?)
in a house full of men.
This year, my guys will just have to deal with a bit of pink.
I think I did a fair job of making pink manly.
(just ignore the pink tutu fabric in the background)

hugs and Valentine kisses,

Valentines For Loved Ones

I only send a handful of Valentine Cards each year.
I created all of the embellishments/banners weeks ago,
let them sit until inspiration hit.
It was fun and freeing to work on the little bits apart from the card design.
I loved the process so much so,
that I am building a small collection of embellishments to use as need arises.

Thanks so much for visiting.
Happy Hugs,

I Must Share This!

This is one of my Valentine hearts which I sold to Heather.
I first "met" Heather during my brief time with the
Marie Antoinette Mail Art Group.
I do miss that group of amazing, talented, and generous artists.
Heather is creating a Valentine book,
and she has incorporated my heart onto one of her luscious pages.
How wonderful is that?
And what an honor.
As anyone who has made a purchase from me knows,
I try to include a little handmade thank you in each box.
This is what Heather did with the little green and pink tag
that was tucked in with her order.

Thank you to Heather for inspiring me to look at things a bit differently.

hugs and JOY,

Look At All Of The Beautiful ATCs

Aren't these amazing?
I am so humbled that so many
amazing artists join my swaps.
Thank you all for your generosity,
you generously share your talents with us all.
Thank you too,
to those who tuck in sweet extras for the hostess,
never necessary, but always appreciated.
I love that some of you include an extra ATC for me,
beautiful little art pieces,
or lovely supplies.
I am so sorry that I don't often personally respond to your kindness,
but please know that your gifts touch my heart.

Please take a moment to visit all of these talented ladies.
Go to this post,
and follow the blog links in the comments section.

Happy February Friends,
