Hey There,

Have not posted in YEARS! Glad to be back.

Well, Christmas is over, and I am gearing up for Valentine's Day. Any ideas?

Looking forward to "crafting with you."

Smiles from Fabulous Las Vegas,

Mary-Beth

Hi, Mary-Beth! I am new here. I don't know exactly what you are looking for, but I want to make some Valentine collages with copies of vintage photos. They will probably be decos or zap pages for my yahoo group trades...or a spread in an altered book or something.

Also, what I like doing for my grandchildren sometimes is to make strings of hearts (paper hearts taped together sandwich style on pink or red or white yarn) and hang them like a curtain in their doorways. I do it while they are sleeping, so that it is a surprise on Valentine's Day morning.

A lot of 1/2 price ornaments could be used for Valentine's decorating. Lots of pink this year too.

If you go to the Gallery on our Paper Forum you can see some of the Valentine's I posted before.

Minnie, I just looked at your work and it's all so neat! You sure have made some nice things.

Thanks Wanda. I'm kind of out of the card making except for Christmas. Not too many people to send them too. Maybe we could do an exchange here.

That would be fun. My 'cards' are usually postcards or paintings. I don't really do greeting cards, but a Valentine exchange would be fun, if I don't get overextended. Right now I am in a New Year's Year of the Dog postcard exchange, where I need to make 10, and a deco exchange (4) and a zap page exchange (6).

What a nice Valentine's Day site. I just took down all my Tree ornaments. I have one tree that is nothing but beaded ornaments. Now, tomorrow I have to find the boxes they go in in the garage. It has been very cold out there!!.
I'm putting up my valentine decor in a week or so since it will be over on the 14th of Feb.

I put all my cupids out at that time too,
