My Fortune-ate Valentine

These were made by making a 4.5 inch circles and glueing pipe cleaners to the center so that when folded the fabric would keep its shape. I inserted my own personal fun messages and placed them in a serving bowl. I wanted to put them in Chinese food carryout type boxes but just ran out of time to make them.

I gave these to my husband and Valentine to open one each day or a couple a day, his choice.

Blizzard Feb. 2, 2011

The first photo was taken yesterday, Feb. 1st, 2011, just as the blizzard was starting. The second photo is a picture of my car around midnight and yes there is a car under the snow. The third photo is my neighbors cars early this morning, Feb. 2nd, 2011. The news said we got about 15 inches of snow in my area, but the areas south of Milwaukee got around 20 inches. Some of the highways have been closed and most business's are closed for the day. Even our emergency vehicles have had issues with this weather! FUN, FUN, FUN!
