Valentines and Romance

I'm finally getting a fire lit under me for Valentine's day.  I envy you gals who jump right in and begin creating and are all ready for the next holiday when it rolls around.  Snow falling, 30 degrees outside, a great day to be inside cutting and playing in my studio.  Hearts, flowers, thinking of the first grade and the red and white box that Mrs. Simms had decorated with valentines and how much fun it was to anticipate what must be inside.  As it was usually we each got a valentine from all of the other kids and one from the teacher, and heart shaped cookies and little cups of punch..  What a wonderful holiday.                   Diane

Hearts on My Mind........

Seeing all the beautiful and artsy spoolies floating around I just had to try making some.  This was my first attempt.  Valentines's Day and the month of February are just fun and full of hearts, and red, and lace and all those lovey things.                        Diane
