Moved my blog

I did it! I finally got a REAL Web site created and up online.

I have a great sense of accomplishment.

But, along with that Web site is a section for my blog. So, I will begin posting there and eventually close this one. First I'll need to figure out how to transfer my archived entries and figure out if I can transfer my followers. Also, I need to figure out a few things with the new blog, like how to add a place for comments, add followers and etc.

But I just wanted to let you know and if you'd like to see my latest blog entry here is the LINK

Thanks for your patience and understanding while I have this work in progress. While you are on my blog, take a look at the rest of my Web site and let me know what you think. I already see things I want to change, but hey, it's a start.

Happy Valentine's Day

The house is decorated in pink. First it was for Evie's 4th Birthday Princess Party, and now it's for Valentine's Day. Slow season for calligraphy, but I've still been trying to stay busy, more on that later.

First I'll show you a Valentine that I made for my hubby last year. It's a small accordian fold card-let because it's not really a book.

The cover is card stock with glittered foam heart on the front and a Glossy Accents heart inside. You can see on my cutting mat that the heart card-let is less than 2 inches tall to give you an idea of size. I used a leftover escort card envelope to put it in.

The long interior accordian part. It was a quick, fun and easy project. Now, I guess I should figure something out for this year.

This is the centerpiece for Evie's party. I bought the pink/purple Christmas ornaments on clearance at Target and put them in a vase. I made tissue paper flowers that were given as favors and made larger ones for the decor, but more on that later.

Prior to the party I had Evie make stamped tube hearts. She's been all about using scissors lately so I had to hide the papers as she wanted to cut them up. I had other plans for the paper. See below.

Yes, I ended up cutting them, but, into Thank you cards / Valentine greetings for everyone. Just mailed them today.

I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day full of pink and hearts.
