Here Comes Valentine's Day

Aside from family time, two of my favorite things are blogging and crafting.  Some of my other favorite things are researching anything, lesson planning, rearranging furniture and organizing (however, maintaining that organization is NOT something I enjoy), reading and board games (although video games are a heck of a lot of fun too!).

My blog is neglected but not due to a lack of crafting.  I had a really busy fall with custom orders and they are still coming in, now I am seeing a rise in Valentine's Day orders.  How fun is that?!

My Gypsy isn't working.  I had a security breach error.  Then I tried following the directions to fix that and I am having even more issues.  So crafting with my Cricut is out of the question at the moment.  I could use this time to break out my sewing machine that has been staring at me since I got it for Christmas but I have opted to catch up on my blog a bit first ;).

This was a fun card to make.  I had to rearrange the buttons several times.  Then I finally got smart and cut out a heart and traced it on the paper and used that guideline. Not sure why the heck I didn't think of that first!!!  The I and the U are wooden letters.  My Secret Santa gave the letters to me last year at work and I have had fun finding ways to use them.  I inked them with Tim Holtz ink before putting them on the card.

Thanks for visiting!
