Love hidden .. underneath the snow

My Valentine mojo is currently hidden under the snow with the freezing rain over top ... I think it needs some sunshine... something.

Good news: Spring is less then 60 days away (not that I am counting)...

Though I may not have much in the Valentine line at the moment - I have had some great ideas lately, but once I try to impliment them, they did not turn out so well... with my papercrafts... with my cooking that has been awesome!... do you think the gods are trying to tell me something?

I once made a notebook for these "ideas" - in which I prettied up with Designer paper and ribbon - and after 2 weeks, I got tied of the ribbon, and couldn't stand looking at the designed paper - so it went in my craft bin for samples. I doodled on grocery list paper, receipts from stores, whatever may be near... sad but true.

Recently, I was laying in bed, and had some pretty awesome ideas but didn't have anything to write my idea down.... NOTHING!! There wasn't anything on the nightstand- and I didn't dare get up - and trying to remember until morning wasn't going to work either.. so I arranged the items on the table in the fashion in which I wanted the card layout...good thing I had earrings, rings, chapstick, remote, cellphone & kindle laying close.

I have to say I like the way it turned out - but will make some minor adjustments.

You are too funny, constructing a card in bed!!! Love how it turned out, doesn't look like your Valentine Mojo is missing!

So glad I am not the only one who puts cards together in bed when I should be sleeping. If I get up I wake up DH and that is not good.
