Dazzled Recluse

Only a month until Valentines Day! I LOVE Valentines Day! The romance, the hearts, the flowers, the sparkle, and particularly the Victorian Graphics and Images. For several years I have scouted the Antique stores for Vintage and Antique Cards and Stickers used them in altered crafts/cards. I LOVE the hunt!

I love make copies of the old ones (No copyrights and the images are fun to share with others) Sometimes I  embellish them a bit. Ribbons, glitter, lace, you name it!

Handmade card made today! I love the old graphics!If you can't read the sentiment well, it says:
Love Lane
Feb 14th
Dear Love,
I pray accept this gift
of mine
With all
Good Wishes,

1900's Valentines, Embellished
Crafting kits for V-Day @ Joyworks

I have to confess. This week I am FINALLY taking down Christmas,,,We had Chelsea, my son's girlfriend here until Monday. And, most of our holiday gatherings occured on New Years Day, or later. So, not much time or effort given to put it away before hand. And, after participating in the Palour Tour this year, and spending quite some time getting "this old house" ready for said event,,,it's taking time to put it down. So as I write in the office where much that remains to be boxed up surrounds me. I pinkie swear that I will get it ALL put away by the end of the coming week!!!
                                                                                   Embellished Peat Pots, I've made for several years.

Needless to say, between packing up Christmas, working on Valentine's ( I know, I know) I have a big HUGE mess,,,,but I'll get it together soon! And it was SO nice to take a break from organizing, putting away, cleaning from guest and gatherings and HIDE out in the basement with my glue gun, glitter and avoid other obligations for a while!

Back to Joyworks tomorrow and find out about the Gift Show in Atlanta! Monday,,,,ugh,,,back to packing up santas, snowmen and the like! Hey, at LEAST I took down the lights out front!
