♥happy valentine's day!♥

last night i made the world's fastest valentine card... (but perhaps also the most delicious?!) ...for my very handsome and adorable neighbor, john. ♥

(patterned paper: sei, prima, current, bo bunny, autumn leaves + origami paper;  pen: copic outliner; dove candies stuck on with gluedots)
lest you be worried about lovely husband jeff, you should know that he is 100% supportive of this relationship. for one thing, he likes john... who is six... and lives across the hall from us! :) at the moment john is very VERY "into" sending and receiving mail, a subject he started learning about in school a couple of weeks ago. since then, we've been exchanging letters and drawings, mostly by leaving them on each others' doormats; i honestly am not sure who is enjoying it more, though i *think* it might be ME! but then let's face it, there is nothing quite as cool as waking up to a "letter" with very neat pencil printing and a row of star wars lego stickers! look out girls of central new jersey, ten years from now you'll be in BIG TROUBLE! ♥♥♥

on the other hand, it's also quite fab to open one's mailbox and finding a totally unexpected greeting and a few treats from a lovely online friend! in this case the benefactor was my very talented fellow ♥JINGLE BELLEcyndie reis* who very sweetly sent me this gorgeous card, which of course i treasure!

there were candies, too, but someone may have scarfed those down too quickly for a photo to be taken! i'm naming no names, here. ok... yeah... it was totally me! :)

finally, on this lovely thursday, i'll leave you with one more holiday thought:

ok, seriously, in real life, this is probably a bad idea. unless you're both cats. or perched on a fence. or both! :) :) :)

happy valentine's day, 

*if you're not reading cyndie's blog you're missing out on both crafty inspiration AND some wonderful writing; she has a great eye as well as a fantastic sense of humor!

You got Star Wars LEGO stickers? Oh boy. I think you might be his girlfriend now :) How cool that you can help him celebrate the fun of getting mail!
