Grow Your Blog

Hello visitor!  This year I'm participating in the "Grow Your Blog" party hosted by Vicki at 2 Bags Full.  This is a chance for all kinds of bloggers to make new friends all over the world and bring more readers and followers to our blogs!  So with that, let me introduce myself.
My name is Kelly and I live in Plainfield, IL.  I work for a special education cooperative in their high school work program.  I have a Bachelor's degree in Urban Studies and a Master's degree in School Counseling and Guidance.  I'm married to a great guy named Ed and have two fur kids named Annie and Dexter. 
 I began blogging a few years ago to display my creative efforts and I love it!  I've met some really great people in the blogging world and I hope to meet you too!  The great thing about blogging is meeting people that have the same creative interests as you!  I also enjoy signing up for swaps through various different blogs.  Thanks to my sister Kris, she persuaded me to start scrapbooking in 2003 and I've never looked back.  I really don't scrapbook much anymore, but I love to create cards, anything altered, journals and I'm now starting to dabble in drawing.  I love to collect old postcards and vintage photo's (instant ancestors!).  I love creating for any holiday and my favorite color right now is any shade of purple.  Oh, I forgot to mention that I'm a horder of paper and fabric flowers and lace! 
Since you took the time to visit my blog, please free to enter to win the pretty Valentine's Day altered bottle and tulle heart below.  This giveaway is open to both domestic and international visitors.  To enter this giveaway, please leave a comment under this post.  Becoming a follower is NOT required, but it sure is nice!  Winner will be announced February 15th.
Thanks Vicki for hosting this awesome party!  Now off to visit YOUR blogs!

Love Is In the Air!

I'm not the most romantic person in the world, but I love decorating and creating for Valentine's Day.  I love the colors and the romantic vintage images.  I also like the cutesy too!  I just bought a few vintage heart shaped candy boxes that I will share in a later post when I drag out the Valentine's tub.  I wanted to share some of the cards I created and a bottle that will be part of a giveaway in a few weeks.  Are you a hopeless romantic?  Do you like to decorate for Valentine's Day?  Please share!
