this year we broke down and bought the Valentine's cards. Since I had been so sick it was the best choice. This is probably the only time I ever did that but what can you do.

They did manage to make beautiful love bugs out of clay and give those as gifts so we did have somewhat of a homemade Valentine's Day. Also I made something fun for the boys that is on my post today.

Happy Heart Day Charlotte!



That's a great 'card'! I know I would've been thrilled to receive one of those, or to have a mother who had designed it :)

I know what you mean about hands! Mine always turn out like starfish or mittens!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours


So sweet, the memories... We used to do likewise, everything homemade (as much as possible). That's how it is when you live far away from stores, and love to craft! Happy Valentine's Day!


Happy Valentine's Day to you Charlotte!
I hope you're having a wonderful time....and if you see Mrs. Pom; Give her a hug from me!


Such sweet memories. & what an adorable card Charlotte, you are a terrific illustrator. I think your paws and claws are so charming. :)

Happy Valentine's Day to all the Lyons and their dear ones!

Oh, I just love your honesty about your creative solutions for hands! I'm just jumping into the freelance world (and 7 months into the world of motherhood too!) so it is very encouraging to know that someone as successful as yourself found ways to shuffle around problem areas! Thanks for the post!!!



So very cool! I miss you think I'd be judged crazy if all by kids to justify the activity...I bought a coloring book and just colored?

I could just say I'm practicing for when the upcoming grandbaby is able to hold a crayon. Ha!

((hugs)) Rosie
