Playing with the Beads....

Got some time to "play with the beads" today as yes, another snow day here PLUS Hannah was still recovering from the stomach flu (yuck!)...nice day for settling inside, and yes, "playing with the beads" - and as Laurie's lovely creations had arrived for our CGGE/etsyBEAD project, I was more than ready to play! Now, remember, this is a work in progress ~ who knows what twists and turns "Spring Reflections" may take before it is completed, but here is a pic of how my mind was working today with it. Stay tuned...

Last Minute Valentines???? No Worries!

Yes, it IS February you have YOUR Valentine's gifts ready? No need to panic! No need to "hit the mall" in a mad rush....or tackle the florist as he/she makes a delivery next door! A few suggestions and links to get you through the day ~

First, most beauty/spa/salons now offer great deals and certificates which often can be printed right from your computer! And yes, we would love a "day of beauty" -- massage, new haircut, manicure, pedicure, -- aah! Pair that with a promise of a romantic dinner out afterwards and you 've got a winning combination!

Really like the idea of flowers? Ok....Valentine's Day Shop 2008: Last-Minute Flowers - lots of choices! Knock yourself out!! And it's not too late! have until 3pm today.....I said, hurry!

Now here's an interesting about sending your "Valentine" out for the day this coming weekend (Saturday) -- say, to go shopping - or to spend some time with friends - while you, give the house, apartment, condo, etc. a GOOD "Valentine" loving cleaning ~ especially if this is something that your Valentine usually handles. Believe me, this gift will be greatly appreciated....this gift works even better if combined with a romantic dinner at the end. :-)

My final recommendation, naturally, would be jewelry ~ and, this year, why not let your Valentine pick the perfect gift for herself and gift her with a SignatureSterling gift certificate, available in various amounts. These are in the Valentine section of the shop and once purchased can be printed right from your computer or emailed to your Valentine.

Whatever you give for Valentine's, may your day be filled with love and joy! Peace...
