lovely colors

These little fellas are such a lovely color! I have been making alot of pretty shades for our Valentine's Update. Could it be because of the lack of color outside right now?

Flowers in January

When you live where there's snow for much of the winter, you do what you can to add a little color to the sometimes drab winter days. I found these lovely vintage die cuts on Kindra's blog the other day... so sweet...

cleaning aside...

I think that there is too much hype about this after the holidays cleaning thing... or perhaps they're aren't enough hours in the day.. whichever it is, I am setting aside the vacuum, and taking a tiny break by playing in the Valentine's treasure-trove box.. It's always a welcome sight to see what findings I have collected thru out the year for this special day... just a tiny sampling, and now back to whatever I started thismorning...hmmmmm, what was it that I began doing?

holiday magic

The holidays were so much fun, and time seemed to fly by. The magic of children again adds a whole new dimension to our lives. We are back at home now, and getting back into the swing of things. Hope that each and everyone of you had a special time with family and friends, and are forging ahead into the New Year with great gusto!
