Hello 2014!

Yes, I know, it has been a long time.  A lot has happened some good, some bad, some medical, and none of which will be discussed here!  TOO BORING!!  On with the fun stuff.

Valentines Day is fast approaching and Marmee has begun some pretty projects of love.
 First, Love Birds 2 page pre-made 12 by 12 layout.  While I was out looking for the perfect L-shaped desk with hutch for next to nothing (read free) I came across a pack of paper that was calling to me to become more than just a pack of supplies in a strange yet cool shop.
These pages in pinks and red with some bling and ribbon bows arrive at your door in protective plastic sleeves ready for you to add your favorite photos of you and your honey. Or love doves as they are known around Marmee's house.  "Sweet Love" journaling space and mats for 2 photos 3" by 5" or smaller
 The opposite page is my favorite.  An adorable little paper pocket with 10 slips of paper for you to write 10 things you love about each other.  How sweet is that? Two mats in red and pink complete the page.  The top is for ideally a 4 x 6 and the red at the bottom is 4 by 5.
Ready for you to save and remember a special day of love in your life.
 Alas, Marmee did not use the hiatus from blogging to work on her photography skills, so sorry about the glare on the glass.  This shadow box is 13 by 13 inches and will hold one photo.  Maybe Valentine's Day dinner or a pic of what he bought when he went to Jarrod's?
Sweetie banner at the top and a side note "It's the little things we share that add up to one BIG love".  Inside of above shadow box without the glass glare.

All these items will be available this weekend for purchase in the Etsy shop.

 I made this a while ago and have kind of wanted to keep it.  You know, it's a Florida girl we-don't-get - fall-so-I-am-obsessed thing. But now that I live in GA, I guess I can let go a little of the beautiful papers of autumn.  Cut with my Cricut and then a little hand cutting as well.  The flower shapes are hand cut (cause I am nuts like that) and distressed with some Early Espresso ink on the edges and raised on dimensionals to make them really pop.  Also for sale this weekend in the shop.
Much more to come this month. For my birthday, or some day before or after, I am asking for a whole day of leave me alone and let me create.  Valentine cards, some word collages on canvas, more pre-made scrap pages on their way!
