Be My Valentine

Anyone who knows me well, might know that I LOVE Valentine's Day (...something about a birthday!). Well growing up, I always remember my mom hanging up hearts around the house for Valentine's Day (birthday!). You know, those card stock printed paper holiday decoration you could buy for any season at like, Kmart. Do you know what I am talking about? You hung them up on the window or wall or door with Scotch tape! After the holiday, you would rip them down (marring the back where the tape had been) and save them until next year (or at least we did).

Well, it is safe to say I am not very successful at being crafty... but every once in a while I just can't help myself from pretending. So, I had this intense itch to create heart holiday garland for the banister to add some heart hoopla to our home. (I wasn't up for a trip to Kmart.) I picked up a couple of those "spool of ribbons" at Walmart and got various shades of pink and red card stock on a 2 for one deal at JoAnne Fabrics.

So, for several evenings last week (after the kids were in bed) you could find me sprawled out on the floor cutting, punching, and stringing my hearts. I enjoyed the therapeutic activity so much, the lengths of garland kept growing as I thought up more places to hang my hearts! (with out being tacky hopefully...)

It is time to dust UP high. See the cob webs in the photo above! Heart garland now graces all three of our living/dining room windows.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Now, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It gets down to choose a proper companion who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]

What's this about not being crafty? I'd say you did a great job!
