My heartfelt thanks for all your comforting words & messages.
I never could have imagined (when I started this blog over five years ago) how my Internet friends would come to mean so much, but (strange as it sounds) I know you all get that "tech connections" truly can enrich life. Every comment means so much & is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
From our house to yours ~ a belated Valentine montage.
Pink & Red tulips:
Know the saying: "the best way to forget about your own sorrows/problems is to do something nice for others?"
I believe it & just got it reinforced when we made Valentine Rice Krispie treats to hand out to our friends & neighbors.
Regular Rice Krispie recipe with Valentine sprinkles pressed into the top and a giant heart cookie cutter to cut out the shapes.
Place hearts on wax paper, let harden slightly, then slide into a clear party bag (Wilton.)
Tie bag with a pretty ribbon.
If you want to stop right there, it would absolutely be festive enough but of course, even on a bad day, I like to go all the way....
So I added a hand stamped tag.
I wish I could give you a link of where to purchase but it's an OLD one ~ a 2001 PSX wood block stamp (#D-3241 if that helps).
The tag is good for a short little message or just an "XOXO" and signature (which is what we did.)
I have to say, it was really wonderful to hand these out & see the happy responses. Who doesn't love a Rice Krispie treat tho???? Consider yourself handed a virtual one! and happy belated Valentine's.
p.s. When I wrote that last post I thought I was ready to get back to blogging but as you saw, I didn't get very far. Maybe now tho.... Cross your fingers.
