|Valentines featuring hearts made from coffee filter scraps.|
The week has come to an end and my living room looks like cupid exploded. There are flower petals in the carpet and gold lace doilies in between the couch cushions. Yesterday I found a tissue paper heart laying on top of the litterbox. See, even Lola is getting in on the Valentine* action.
The blizzard induced confinement spurred a surge of craftiness, as well as a few new internet adventures. Thought I would share a few highlights…

AND it’s healthy? Shazzam!I think I’m getting a parental inadequacy complex (read: Lola is getting a sweater.)Speaking of parental inadequacy, one time I met a girl named La-A, pronounced LaDasha (“because the dash don’t quit!”)…and I thought that was ridiculous. Then I read this. Oh. Wow.
