March Giveaway Soon!

Hi, everybody! we will be doing a new giveaway this month, starting sometime in the next week or so. I've been busy, stitching cards and candle mats. I have a new Yorkie card completed but am having trouble with my camera focus. No matter what I do, it doesn't take a good focused photo. And as you know, scanned stitching just doesn't work  as the images come out flat looking. My digital camera does a good job but its hit and miss. I took a photo of another of the Shih Tzu puppies and this one came out great..

The little guy is now on a nice card and waiting to be put into my shop so someone can adopt him. He's a cutie!

Februrary Valentines

The new February Giveaway will start on Valentines Day, February 14th. Here are a few vintage Valentines to get us all in the mood for the sweet day.

I started collecting vintage Valentines while my darling mother was in a Alzheimer home. I had found a few going through her things.. I also found her high school autograph book and lots of ephemera. Finding those things made me feel so much closer to her and opened a window into her early life that I never knew.  It was so sweet reading all the autographs of her school mates way back in the 1920s and seeing the sweet Valentines touched my heartstrings.  Hope you will enjoy these Valentines!

Until next time,
