New Goodies to Play With!

So this Valentine's DH(dearhusband) and I decided to buy our own gifts-love this idea! My DH is a collecter of dictionaries and his fav is the OED-Oxford English Dictionary. He saw this set on ebay and we decided it would be a great gift for him. Happy Valentines's day, honey!

For me, it's not about cut flowers (although unexpected flowers are nice!) and chocolates. I just like to acquire papercrafting paraphenalia! Maybe one day I will get to play with it but in the meantime, I just gather and stash. Some of my goodies include Tim Holtz's MusicNote Mask, some Grungeboard and Adage Tickets,Little Yellow Bicycle's leaf stick pens, October Afternoon's Note Cards, Gary Burlin's Watch Faces and a punch I have been looking for everywhere and STILL didn't find the EXACT one I want=McGill Punch "Starburst" small version. I am coveting the large "Starburst" and can't find it anywhere!!
Regardless, these are my goodies for V's Day and I am excited to start playing!

Today it's going to be over 50 degrees warm in Virginia in February! Crazy, right?!
So I have finished my new morning routine of dog walk, protein shake, treadmill and now on to the laundry pile!

Have a great day!

Love your Valentine's gifts!!! Thanks so much for your blog visit and your questions. My images "come from" everywhere!!! I like to use a lot of stuff from the public domain, manipulate it in digital programs, cut the figures out and then color the heck out of them with markers, colored pencils, etc. It's a little complicated, but f-u-n!!! I'm soooo happy that you're playing in the DLP. Ideas for a tutorial are percolating!!! Hugs! ♥ Terri
