Valentine's Day

I was too tired and annoyed at the end of the day yesterday to do my blog post.  BF said but you have to.  You've gone all this time doing a post every day.  He is right.  The only day I missed this year was the one day we did not have electricity.  Oh, well.  Two days missed so far this year.

Day 14, and the last day of the 14 days of Valentine's with Parsley, brought me a pack of ladybug buttons and a ladybug magnet.  I LOVE ladybugs just like I love bunnies.  Thanks, P!  And thanks so much for doing this swap with me.  It was lots of fun.

Valentine's Day gifts from BF brought me a bear dressed as a ladybug, Rainblo gumballs (he knows I love gum but don't usually buy it for myself) and a Pandora charm for my bracelet.  It may be hard to tell, but the charm is silver and has little hearts all over it, and the hearts are a sparkly purple.  LOVE IT!!!

And here is a shot of just the charm.  I tried to get as close as I could to it with my camera.

My birthday is coming up in May and I am taking all of my birthday money to buy Pandora charms, especially some glass beads.  But considering that all of the prices have increased, I will be able to buy less than I thought!  And I am going to ask BF to get me the cupcake or the celebration cake charm as his present to me to represent my birthday.  He made a point of telling me yesterday that all of the charms I have so far have a meaning.  Okaayyyy.  It is cute, though.  So, I have to continue that, right??

I really love the boxes the charms come in.  I am saving them, but I don't know what I am going to use them for.  Mill Hill beads perhaps??

I did work on Time For God yesterday and this morning, but have not gotten done as much as I would have liked.  For a smallish pattern this seems to be slow going.

I ordered some Q-snap covers (11 by 11 and 11 by 17) from Yarn Tree last week and they shipped yesterday!  Yay!  I hope to have them soon.

The Daughter is really sick with a stomach bug, so I am sending her well wishes and prayers for fast healing!

I hope you have a terrific Tuesday!

In peace, love and stitches,

I enjoyed our swap. Looks like BF got you some wonderful goodies!

I hope you stay away from the stomach bug. I hear it's awful!

Nice pressies! Love your charm and it is wonderful to have a meaning to go with them. I got one from my MIL, it's flowers w/pink stones and a dangle pearl for Vday. You can never have enough of those charms!
