Happy Valentine's Day!

I made a few very simple Valentine postcards this year for a Christian Paper Artists swap. The designs were based on wanting to use specific rubber stamps I just recently aquired (lately I am buying as many as I am selling on ebay!)

I have several "Postcard" stamps, but this is my new favorite. Got to make more postcard art so I can use it. Got to make more stamp art period, because I have a fabulous collection of rubber and it is under utilized. Thinking about making my next zine featuring rubber stamp art.
So far I have done well on keeping my New Year's resolutions. I wanted to lose weight and do more art. Well, I am creating pretty steadily (housework is suffering, but something's got to give!) and I have lost 16 pounds! I went to the thrift store Saturday and invested $2.00 in some "new", clingier clothing. Two pairs of size 14 jeans and a couple of size medium sweaters. I feel like a size 2! I would love to be a 12 again, but haven't seen that in over 13 years. Anything is possible though. You won't see me buying half priced chocolate after Valentine's Day!
