I'm not very good at remembering this but it's important: You make time to do the things you want to do.
So, as Valentine's Day was closing in, I realized it was now or never in the Valentine creation mode! Out came the supplies! Paint, modeling paste, paper, lace, mica, buttons, glue.

I can't tell you how much fun it was to dig into this after what seemed too long a time away at the art table.
Hours passed and I didn't even notice the time. All of a sudden I realized Rick was coming for dinner and it wouldn't kill me to see if the meat was defrosted and figure out what might go with it (much less get it into the oven in time!)
I also took time to work a bit on my journal pages. I still haven't posted about that workshop. Soon. Maybe next!
AND, I finally experimented with transfer paper, now that I have a printer! My transfer technique leaves much to be desired, but I think I could get hooked on this -- transferring the image, then moving the ink around for a watercolor effect.
All in all, glorious fun!
Yes, loving the love at Valentine's Day -- and every day!
