Hearts and Flowers

Here are a few Valentines I made recently, using stuff I have on hand. Old (not vintage) book pages, bits of scrapbooking and tissue paper, little lace flowers, ribbons and wire. Easy and fun.

I'm preparing for another exam next week, and it's a doozy. Intro to Canadian Literature and I have over 100 hundred poems of which small excerpts could show up requiring identification. Plus 7 novels from which essays will be required. It's a little bit overwhelming. When I contacted the professor to ask if I'd really gotten the exam requirements straight, she said, "I know it's a little daunting but do the best you can, and I can tell you to concentrate on the major poets." Right.

In addition my mother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece are coming from Alberta for the weekend. We're looking forward to lots of fun. I'll be studying on the run!
