Happy Valentines Day .......

Happy Valentines Day to everyone out there ...... a special card ....  and Pauls taking me to the movies.



I have been stitching my protection cloth .... some nights only a few stitches....but it is coming along.  Slow and steady wins the race..... I'm not sure whether I will do any stitching on the dots/in the dots.  I think I will leave them as they were when I bought the piece of cloth.  It has been lovely to hear that others are doing some red stitching too.
I chose this beautiful print I bought from Magaly Ohika (one of her beautiful postcard sets)  for the front of my latest molesking journal (#5).  Love this series of her work ....and I love her art on the front of my daily journals.  Very inspirational.


Some new art supplies... some Daniel Smith watercolors.  I do LOVE his colours!!!!  Some new cobra water based oil paints and a couple of new sennellier oil pastels.  Fun, fun, fun.
And lastly a photo of my sweet old dog Oakey (16)  having a little snooze with his teddy.  He loves to rest his head on a pillow or his toys.  He's the sweetest little man.....and sleeps a lot these days.

I hope your  Valentines Day was special.....sending you all  LOVE.


LOVE THE ANIMALS,
LOVE THE PLANTS,
LOVE EVERTHING.

Now you will have your new web site and also you're keen to begin making some gross sales! But, how are you going to make sales if you happen to would not have high volumes of holiday makers to your web site?
