2010's Valentines ( Just a little late)

I know Valentine's Day was a few weeks ago, but I thought I would share what we did for Valentine's this year.  I got the kids ready for church an hour early sometime in January and drug them all down to the studio.

I had each child draw a picture and sign their name on a piece of paper folded in half length wise.

I then turned all of their pictures into these adorable bookmarks, put thier hand drawn pictures on the backs and had them professionally printed.


I love them!  And its a good thing because I ordered too many.  I will never be without a bookmark again!

(This one I didn't order because I wanted them all to match, but I still like this one too.)

I have a secret blog

Thats right.  I have a secret blog.  A little while back, maybe a year or so ago, I was having a really tough time with a few things.  I needed a place to vent.  I needed a place to tell the universe that I was angry, sad, hurting, confused and probably just very hormonal.  I did not want to talk about these things with someone who knew me or my family.  I didn't want to say something that I truly meant in the moment but not 5 minutes later when I calmed down.   I could have written it in a diary or journal, but I wanted to tell someone.   So I created a secret blog.

I created a fake email, fake name, fake profile and created a secret blog.  I wrote a very dramatic blog entry.  I posted it for the world to see.  Then I signed out and cleared  my browser history.  And now, I don't remember my fake email, name, profile or blog address.  I couldn't find my fake blog if I wanted to.  I don't even remember what I wrote about mostly.  But it made me feel better.
