Happy Valentine's Day!

One more Valentine, this one is for Donna

I was lucky enough spend my entire day croppin' with a fabulous bunch of girlfriends! Can't wait to share some of the projects I managed to get done.

In other news, I have been having a blast participating in "A month of letters" challenge. The idea is to send snail mail every business day in February. It hasn't been too difficult to manage so far since I sent decided to send a few Valentine's and a couple of postcards in addition to the birthday cards that I was already planning to send. I did cheat a bit, mailing a few Valentines on the same day at the beginning of this week so they would arrive in time. I truly love this idea, as it necessitates slowing down long enough to really think of a friend of family member and connect with them via the good, old-fashioned pen! Click on over to read the brief description of how it all started. This was right up my alley, so I decided to take on the challenge! 
Here are a couple of the letters I sent. One is a Valentine for my nephew (who is 2 1/2) which also contains a mini version of "Thomas' Snowsuit" by Robert Munsch. My boys loved Munsch and I loved having the mini versions in my bag or purse when travelling or anytime we had to wait somewhere. At Christmas time, I sent him the mini version of "Red is Best." I am hoping to get him hooked on snail mail at a young age, lol! Bills in the mailbox are just so boring! I am determined that the boys in my family are at least going to know HOW to write and mail a letter, even if it doesn't happen frequently.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow with a project I made at the crop!
