Studio Time!

Sometimes you just have to just take the time to do what you want and love.

Valentine's Day is coming and I wanted to get some cards ready for the shop that sells them.

And it wouldn't hurt to have a few myself.

So, the art table is in business -- all sorts of things are sprawled out as I go between glue, paper, ribbon, buttons and more.

Here's a sneak preview. Doesn't look like much, does it?

But even though I'm keeping this one relatively simple, I'll show you the finished card soon -- along with a few others! You'll see what even just a little embellishment can do!

(AND, I've finally started writing about reading again! On Chopsticks and String check out my take on Diane Keaton's memoir, "Then Again."

I can’t wait to see the finished products of your imagination – but I already know they will be lovely.

I can already see that it's going to be very pretty.

One question though: I thought you send just one Valentine to a very special person? How many Valentines can you have?

Relyn said...

Oh, oh! I want to come play in your studio.

This must be the busiest time for you other than Christmas... Valentine's Day! I'm excited just looking at your 'ingredients'. Looking forward to seeing all the creations you'll produce for this special day, Jeanie! Now, I'll hop over to read your review of Then Again.

Hi Jeanie, I like what you wrote about taking the time to do what you want and love. I love taking my photographs and I like to write about them, I guess that is why I have come back to blogging again :)

Oh fun! I adore Valentine's Day cards - and hand made ones are especially wonderful! I am glad you are taking time to do what you love and enjoy.

Jeanie said...

I'm glad you are taking time to do what you want and love. It looks like your loved ones will be getting some very special valentines.

It gives me a little thrill every time you mention the shop that sells your cards ... so glad you had the chance to play in your newly renovated studio! Beautiful cards!

Oh, Jeanie! I can hardly wait to see your finished Valentines. Those who end up receiving them will be fortunate, indeed!

Hooray for art time! It's always so much fun to make valentines. I look forward to seeing your finished cards.

Ooooh, can't wait to see! Love the key jar!!!

Marilyn said...

Love seeing the fun containers full of goodies to play with. I always love seeing your creations too. For some reason I don't think to make valentine's. Thanks for the inspiration to at least think about doing it.

I'm so anxious to see what you create - Valentine's Day is almost as perfect as Christmas for someone with your talents!

Have you ever posted photos of the shop selling your cards? That would be wonderful to see - I do wish we had such things around here, but about the best we have is Target. ;(
