Two more Valentines...

There's a woman in my mom's crafting group who's working on her PhD and she breaks up her study/doctorate-writing time by coloring digi stamps that Mom provides for cards. This woman never did "crafty stuff" before, but she's so enjoying it that she bought her own set of colored pencils. Her work is gorgeous. This is just another story of how creativity, in the form of cardmaking in particular, can enrich lives. I feel it everyday!

I especially appreciate crafting when I have
actual work to do, like the data entry I put off until today. It was very nice to be able to stand up occasionally and glue something! I managed to make two cards while procrastinating, and then actually achieving, my work. Both are for Card Cupids' challenges; I'm looking forward sending more cards to them and their sweeties.
