It’s Not All Hearts and Roses

Today was an early day for leaving the house.  We participated in an interfaith community service project at Balboa Park in honor of Martin Luther King Day…and I forgot to take my camera!  It’s okay to do things without a camera – I suppose!  It was a hot summer day…wait, I mean it was a hot winter day.  That’s right, we live in San Diego and our winter weather is totally unpredictable…unless you’re a weather man/woman.  I didn’t even think to check what the temperature was going to be like today, so wearing a black jacket and black tee shirt turned out to be the wrong choice.  I checked tonight and found out that the recorded high today was 79 degrees and I don’t know about the rest of the country, but 79 is hot for this time of year!  It was a beautiful day and a great way to spend the morning, outside and being of service.

So, because of my busy morning/afternoon, I didn’t have much time to get any work done.  So here is my one lone project for today.  While pink and red are my first choice for a Valentine color palate, I couldn’t resist Cosmo Cricket’s Circa 1934 typewriter element with the words “I love you.”  Grunge it up a bit and you’ve got a great masculine greeting card.  You can do a lot with those 3 little words!

 
 
I am really loving my baker’s twine…it seems to go with just about everything!
