But it is fun and I will take the criticism, whatever it might be, and will remind myself that #1 I am probably my biggest critic and #2 I am trying to grow thicker skin. I'm not writing to impress, but rather to learn, grow and get better at it.
Today is Valentine's Day!! I mailed a vintage reproduction valentine to my Grandma Eva yesterday. She loves valentines day, and she always told me that it was a valentine that brought her and Grandpa Joe together. And vintage valentines are just so much fun!
|This is a neat book full of vintage reproduction valentines I got mine from my mom (thanks Mom). The book is available at Amazon.com.|
|I just couldn't resist posting this one from Lola's Vintage Blog.|
|These are the valentines I made a couple years ago for my daycare moms and friends. I wanted so badly to make some again this year, but ran out of time.|
|Here is the fan folded up. I used a brad at the bottom to secure the sections together.|
|Once I have my pattern drawn out I photocopy it and make multiples. I color each one, cut them out and put them together with the brad.|
|These are colored and ready to be cut out. Next year, I will get my act together and get some of these done!|
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Have a Happy Day!
