The most wonderful time of the year...

I love Valentine's Day. I think it's because valentines are one of my favourite things to make. I glory in the abundance of pink and red and pretties. It could also be because I'm in love. Yeah, gross, I know.

Here's a valentine I made for a secret valentine exchange. I hope my swap partner likes it!

I suck. But not for long.

I admit it, I'm a crap blogger. But since it's the start of a new year, it seems like the right time to start blogging again. Here's hoping I can actually keep it up.

I think part of the problem is that I've been feeling incredibly uninspired lately. I've managed to get a few things done, though...

Here's a little booklet I made for a hand-carved print round-robin with the theme of Autumn to Winter. It's actually constructed as a portfolio, with loose pages inside. I'm really pleased with the way both my stamp and "booklet" turned out, and I think it'll be home soon! Very exciting. This will be the first round robin to ever make it home to me.

And here's a little watercolour painting I did for a colour-themed round robin. (The theme for this page was blue, purple, and brown.) I need to work on my painting and drawing skills, but I think this worked out pretty well.

OK, off to make stuff! And then I'll blog about it. I promise.
