A Valentine Mess!

Hi all!
Hope you had a great weekend!
We were busy with Jake's Baptism yesterday.
He was amazing, and never made a sound the entire time. In fact he even fell asleep for awhile. It was a great day! A lovely party was thrown by my daughter Amanda, and her husband Joe. The popular party game was let's pass the baby. Everyone wanted to hold Jake! He was a trooper. The weather couldn't have been better, as it was in the 70's yesterday. Quite warm for January in Southern California. (Sorry)I know it's freezing in most of the country.
Thought I would show you my mess for the day. I am busy working on Valentine projects. A lot of orders have come in for crowns, cards, and cones, so if I don't visit you for a few days, you know why. Up to my elbows in Valentine's!!
Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my Chandelier shirt. I think I might start making more shirts with vintage pictures on them very soon.
Have a wonderful week!
Chat again soon.

Awwww, pass the baby looks like my kind of game! Problem is, if you passed him to me, I'd likely never hand him back. What a cutie!

As far as your mess goes, that's really no mess at all! Come on over here, I'll show you what a REAL mess looks like! It's scary! :-)

Have a wonderful week,

May GOD bless baby Jake and grow him into the young man He created him to be.

Love your valentine mess and even though I love snow, I wish it were 70 degrees here. We awoke this morning to 13 degrees.

Blessings, andrea

Well, it may be a mess, but it's a FINE should have a sign, "Caution: Genius at Work!!! Watch for Falling Glitter"
