Countdown to Valentine's Day!

Just before Christmas I had a little blurb on my blog (say that 10 times fast!) about getting together a group of gals to exchange Christmas cards with. It turned out to be a small group which worked in our favor, because now we are making Valentine Day cards to send to each other. Here are a couple I made.........our group consists of Jennifer, Lorie, Karen, Erica, Jane, Donna, Liz, Nancy (my Mom!), and myself. It is lots of fun to have a little circle of women to send cards to.

Today is Sunday, my usual hermit/do nothing day. I managed to clean the bathroom this morning and straighten out a few piles of paper. Now I will reward myself by going back to bed to read the paper, watch some TV, study, and maybe watch a movie. I rented Memoirs of a Geisha.......I loved that book. I remember when my friend Noreen bought it for me. It totally opened up a new realm of reading about other cultures....now I love reading books set in India, Japan, China and other foreign cultures. Maybe if I feel really peppy I will work on some more cards!!

I love your adorable valentines! Your group will be lucky to receive yours!

I loved "Memoirs of a Geisha" too, and while the movie is long, it is so very sumptuous! I need to get some of those Prismacolor pencils! Four star!
