Feelin' the love

As is often the case, the inspiration came from Martha:
Jessie was inspired to channel Martha, make her own cupcakes and 18 different bowls of frosting. She took a lot of pictures,with different props, and this is one of my favorites because in the upper left part of the heart is the cupcake she crocheted for me.

She picked her favorite picture, printed and mounted them on purple paper with a personalized note, and then had them mailed from Loveland, Colorado, where they were stamped with a special Valentine's stamp. How fun to open the mailbox and get her valentine.

Next came a special Valentine's card made and delivered by Christa and Charlotte, with cookies and special artwork done by Charlotte.

And yesterday this fabulous fabric postcard arrived in the mail, postmarked from Loveland, Ohio. Thanks, Becky!

And finally, what could be better than watching a master pastry chef at work?

Eat your heart out, Martha. The rest of you, having a love-ly day.

Hah! How cool! I'll have to check out the differences between Loveland Ohio's postmark and Loveland CO's. Funny enough when I sent out all my cards, I didnt think to send one to myself so I'd know what they look like!

I'll bet those Valentines cookies were the best ever, what with all the LOVE VIBES in the room. The pictures of your adorable Pastry Chef are fab, I don't even have to imagine how fun you had.
