• Welcome to My Creative Year!

    Thanks so much for coming to see what I've been up to. I'm in the midst of a self-challenge to *create* for a year straight. I needed something to fill a weird void I was feeling, and exploring different styles of art and creativity seems to fit the bill! So, Welcome! I'm glad you've come for a visit...
  • Heartfelt Thanks

    I don't always have a chance to thank everyone who leaves such lovely comments on my projects. I just want to express my appreciation for your encouragement and compliments on my creative journey. You are all greatly appreciated!

More Stitching (and a very late Valentine)

Since my “one year” post, I actually have been working on some things – just not posting them.  After being on the computer all day at work, sometimes that’s the last thing I want to do when I get home at night.  Sometimes it’s just more fun to sit on the couch and stitch, or dig through supplies, or doodle…  You get the idea.

I made my sweetie LLM a Valentines Day card this year, instead of buying one.  It’s fun to make stuff, and it seems to mean quite a bit more.

He’s a logger – need I say more?  🙂  I saw this adorable stump design over at Wild Olive. Isn’t it the cutest???  I love how she puts little faces on everything.  The little faces totally make me smile.

I also saw, somewhere, the play on words “wood” you be mine – and again, being a logger, nothing could be more perfect.  He totally laughed when he saw it.  🙂

I just cut the heart out of some red and gold glittered scrapbooking paper, glued the embroidered stump on the front (painted the edges because the glue came through the fabric and looked terrible).  Then added some little do-dads inside, and wrote my message to my Lovely Logger Man (didn’t post that picture – that’s mine!).  Nothing special, to say – but it was fun to make, and I think it meant something to him.  🙂

A Valentine with a side of Brownies.
