Hearts, red, pink, flowers, love, roses, and candy. Those are words that pop into a persons head when they hear the word February. My head thinks - HOLIDAY! It's my birthday!! February 17 is my birthday. This year it is on a Wednesday (and if I'm correct, I think I was born on a Wednesday - mom help me out with this one). As a kid I didn't know if I really liked my birthday in the middle of winter. I didn't get to play outdoor water games like my brother did (he has a May birthday). The party favors were great though, hearts, candies and pink! I remember one year my mom made me a heart shaped birthday cake with pink frosting.
Now when it comes to Valentine's, I guess I haven't ever really made a big deal out of this holiday. I figured, why not love that person and show them 365 days a year vs. going all out on one day of the year?
On that note, get your loved ones an adorable coffee cozy this Valentine's day! It will sure light up their day! There are some GREAT options in my Etsy Shop - LaceyBug Creations! Check out the cozy to the left. I have used a cable stitch to create this stylish coffee cozy that will fit around your coffee mug.
On Friday, February 26, 2010 @ 7pm - I will be holding a scrapbook class! We will be creating a mini-album using the NEW Cosmo Cricket Lines. If you live in Fargo (or near by) and are interested in taking this class, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information!!
Finally, my first e-newsletter was a hit! Thank you for the great comments. I'm excited to get my next one out full of new information for all you crafters. You can sign-up right here on my blog. Put your e-mail address in the "My E-Newsletter" area on the left side!! March's newsletter will be sent on March 1! So get in on the action.
