Almost February!!!

Heart applique

I think January is my least favorite month. All that post-holiday sadness and crappy gray weather. I remember the day Jane was born (May 18th), John's brother Jim was driving to the hospital to see us and said he heard on the radio that May 18th is the happiest day of the year. Of course we thought so with our perfect new little girl..........but then they said the saddest day of the year is January 7th. Do you agree? I do......other than the fact that that's my mom's birthday...I had to laugh at that. Sorry, Mom!!! Anyway...I think that's why I love Valentine's Day so much. The end of January means I can start to craft/decorate for Valentine's Day. Don't get me wrong....of course I hated Valentine's day during my teenage/college years just like every other girl. I love it now that I have kids partly because I know how much they love it and look forward to every holiday. To me it's really more about the kids and not all that romantic roses/chocolate crap that it's been commercialized as.

Sorry for rambling. Remember how long I've been away from the blog? Now I have lots to say!!! I know you're out there listening, my blog traffic software says that you are...not to mention how many people told me I needed to post! So if you're reading this, please take a minute to post a comment...especially if you never have....just so I know you're out there! Your comments are what keep me going, and up until now I mostly get comments in person but I'd love to have more on here. If I can get more feedback I will start having contests and giveaways!!! Yay! You know you want something free! Leave a comment!

I will be back very soon to show you how to make a 30 minute (or less) personalized shirt for your favorite little loved one!
