Happy Valentimes Day

I know.  It says Valentimes, not Valentines.  That’s how we say it in our house (not sure why).

I thought it was an appropriate day to show off the LO I created for J this past weekend, using the Daydream Believer February kit from Studio Calico (best kit EVER). 

Forgive the typewriting.  It was the first time I used my new typewriter, and even though I practiced on scraps, it still didn’t turn out the best.  And on top of that, it smudged, too.  But that’s okay.  I’m happy with the imperfection of it.  Hopefully he can read it all 😉

Speaking of the crop this last weekend…  my friend Kim held an emergency fundraising crop to raise money for her friend, Lynn, who is in her final stages of terminal cancer.  Lynn’s one wish is to remain in her home until the end of her journey, and all the fundraising efforts were to be able to grant her that wish.  Such a shame that home care is so darn expensive, butI guess there’s nothing we can do about that.  I have yet to know the final tally, but I will say the outpouring of support for Kim, for Lynn, was something to see.  People from all walks of life and all abilities, donated their time, their money, their food, prizes, everything you can think of.  I know Kim was completely overwhelmed and I know that everyone’s generosity is what will help Lynn’s wish come true.

Hope everyone has a great day, whatever it may mean for you 🙂

  3. You’re layout is beautiful, Tara!
    I got a typewriter at a garage sale this past summer but it’s so unreliable that I don’t use it often on my layouts! I need to loosen up, I know! LOL!
