Bringing out The Valentine Goodies~

Yes, I know it is not even New Years but
I am trying to get a jump
on my Valentine Creations

I've been bringing out my
Vintage Valentines and supplies that I have
found throughout the year....

It always helps to get me inspired
to cover my studio table with Vintage
Valentine supplies,
 it just gets my creative juices going

I have a custom order that has been
kinda on the back burner
It's really funny how things work
for me when someone orders something
"Special" I sometimes just get a creative Freeze
So I must complete that first!

But then it's Valentines Bonanza
over at my place~

Our New Years Eve this year should be pretty
mellow so I am hoping to be
in The Studio covered in glitter
How about you? I would love
to hear what you've got cookin
in your Studio~

A Toast to a Great 2011~

Happy New Year Diane! I like what you did with this heart - of course I have a passion for sheet music even though I don't know how to read or play it. Sandra

Hey Diane,

I started creating for Valentine's a week ago! One night I was just lying there, a vision flashed in my mind, and that was it. You know how it is when creativity hits - you just HAVE to follow it.

Anyway, I converted some vintage Japan felt skaters and carolers into Valentines. I haven't blogged about them yet, but they're on my Etsy if you wanna pop on by!

They were so fun to make too! They're always my favorite pieces, the ones that are just pure joy to work with. : )

Can't wait to see all your goodies,

Hi Diane ... hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas! Wow, you are such a creative soul, already moving on to our next holiday! I love vintage Valentine treasures and can't wait to see where your creativity takes you. My birthday is the day after Valentines so it has always been a special holiday for me! Much health & happiness for 2011!

Diane, I can't wait to see. These are gorgeous. I have my old cards on a turn style to that I can just turn them as the seasons change. Your creations are always fab.
