Oh, those curls adorn your little one so well! She is pretty, just like, I'm sure, her mama :) ... and your card set is so lovely... wonderful way to begin the year and the soon to come Valentine season. Can I bet that you used your new camera to take all these photos? Methinks I see a difference in them already! :) hugs and happy new year wishes...

beautiful project full of sweet details! so glad to hear that you are enjoying the holidays. Happy New Year! Best wishes to you and yours!


What a lovely post Melissa. Your little girl is so cute with her curls. Your Valentine project is delicious and so elegant. Wishing you and your family a very happy new year.



Such a stunning project! I could
never make a project look that
good! Such talent you have. Your
daughter is absolutely adorable
and so pretty. Love her curls.
I look forward to viewing your
projects and your notes through out 2011!

I love all of your Valentine projects, I think they are my favorite! Your sweet baby is getting so grown up! She is just beautiful and your stories about her always make me smile! TFS


I so look forward to seeing your creations, you have such a talent. Your little one is adorable and I'm so glad you kept her curls they suit her. We also have put away the last of Christmas and my little one (3 year old Granddaughter) has settled down with her Alphie the Robot to learn about Animals. Sadly she doesn't have a girlie bone in her body (so unlike her Mommy), maybe she will grow


bravo md

Just finished putting away the Christmas decorations which always makes me sad. That's why I love snowman/winter theme items as I can leave them out a bit longer! The curls on your little girl remind me of those Shirley Temple curls my mother made for me and how I loved them. The card set is absolutely beautiful, as always!


Your little bean is quite the beauty with her pretty curls. Isnt it fun how they can be so girly and then such a tom boy! Those are the most beautiful Valentine creations. You so inspire me with all your fabulous talent.


A wonderful post. I graciously await a new year of your amazing gifts. True to form this is delicate and beautiful. The curls got me...that photo is lovely.
I sent you a special email Melissa on 12/31 I hope you received it.


Your first post of 2011 and it's gorgeous. I love the stories about your family; they always make me smile. And your cards?
This is one bundle of love, joy and beauty....
Holiday is over now and everything is back to normal. I think Sierra can hardly wait to come home from school to her puppy and kitten.(and her mother of course:)!)
I hope your day is wonderful; even though it is quiet again around the house.


Came over here from the Vintage Rabbit now I am off to check out your past Posts, Happy New Year, Diane


A puppy and a kitten? Is this in addition to Flour/Flower? What a lucky little girl!

By the way, it always feels like Valentine's Day around here. You couldn't hide the love if you tried.


Her curls are the cutest, sweetest things, and I envy them so!! My 2 year old barely has a fringe to her chin, and my 7 month old is as bald as can be... I hope someday I can get such beautiful curls out of at least one of them!

PS... your projects are just STUNNING, as they always are :)

LOVE the curls....that picture is absolutely adorable. And, as the mother of only boys myself, I had a lot of fun reading all the girly things she's loving these days. I'm hoping for at least a niece at some point in life so I can spoil her! Thanks for sharing :)

What a sweet photo! I'm so excited that it's Valentine season... Love seeing your lovey-dovey creations. :) Thanks again for the gorgeous Christmas pocket... I'm still using bits of it up in my Dec Daily album (I know... still haven't finished, lol!)
