Tomte! Be My Valentine!
Submitted by Pam on Mon, 02/10/2014 - 20:09
I am soooooooooo in love with my new Alan Dart Tomte! Just finished him a couple days ago. AND I am totally in "crafty love" with BARC Wood Veneer Paper - which is what I used to make the sweet little prototype Valentine Danish Heart Basket he is holding.
The snow has prevented me from getting to my mail box to retrieve the fresh supply of BARC paper waiting for me so for now - this is it. But you will be seeing and hearing more between now and Christmas in July about how to make these - and more!
But for now - since Valentines Day is upon us I want to reiterate something I said in my last post because the more I think about it, the more I think it is a very good thing to do for Valentine's Day.
"I would like to propose that this year anyone reading take the time to leave a comment of appreciation on at least one blog that has provided inspiration or pleasure during the past year. More if time permits - but at least one. Commenting has all but died in favor of "likes" and other more instantaneous forms of social media. Tell your favorite bloggers you appreciate them."
And I want to add to that - show one unexpected bit of appreciation to someone who has made your life a little better this year. It can be a card, a single flower, a plate of brownies - just something to say thank you. It will make them happy and it will make you happy.
Wishing you - each and every one - a Happy Valentine's Day!
