Valentine's Day 2007
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Larry and I don't DO anything special on V-Day, but we do create special cards for each other. Over the years, with the advent of Photoshop, our cards have been easier to craft. We started out 17 years ago cutting, pasting and collaging different elements. Now, we can do the same functions on the computer. One of these days, I must post all of our Valentines online.
We try to personalize and make each year's card relevant to our lives. This year my card is slightly bitter. You see, our backyard has been outta whack for about 5 years. 6 years ago we tore down our little 1927 garage and built a bigger garage-combo-studio. This building is huge, almost the same size as our little house. Wellllll......all of the dirt excavated for the construction is still sitting in a pile in the middle of our yard. No level land, no landscaping, no nothing. Larry is a freelance photographer and keeps getting interrupted by work, so he really hasn't had the time to work on the yard. He's the type of guy that likes to do everything himself. I call the backyard Mars, 'cause it looks like the rocky, red planet. I incorporated one of our sci-fi paintings into images of our sad backyard.
Larry's card for me, on the other hand, is sweet and romantic.
We'll be with our usual Wednesday night dinner group at the Original Farmers Market tonight for a Valentine celebration. Hope your celebration is good too!
