From St. Valentine's to St. Patty's

From St. Valentine's to St. Patty's


Ruth Welter at
Artful Creations is giving away a sweet treasure in honor of Valentine's Day! The winner will receive a framed tile called Ocean View (not pictured), which was inspired by an original watercolor on canvas painting that Ruth regards as one of her favorites. The tile measures 6" square and comes with a peg on the back for standing, or it can be hung on a wall.

Her work is remarkable! I have one of her mini masterpieces draped over the glass knob of a pedestal jar. It is a beautiful and delicately hand-painted pink rose on an eggshell!

The Deadline to enter is Tuesday, February 19th. Click

In March, I will be hosting a LIMERICK CONTEST! You may submit as many original limericks as your wee heart desires. This contest will run from March 7th to March 17th, after which you will be invited to vote for your favorite entries. There will be an official post starting on March 7th. If you would like to receive a Limerick How-to (pdf) containing examples, just email me and I will be happy to send it your way.


  1. Kj, Thank you for the kind comments on my blog, it means so much to me.

    Now what exactly is a limerick? I need the particulars on this one.

    So your Hubby likes a good nap! Your limericks about his snoozing are great.
    Hugs, DebraK

    PS. Do you mean Macaskey high school?

  2. Hey KJ, that is so sweet of you, thank you for mentioning my give away and for your kind words.

  3. PS...Kj, love your limerick about mid day naps. My husband is a master at what he calls "power naps". Funny, for me to sleep in the afternoon, I really have to be sick and usually, if I do sleep, it is for hours, simply because I am sick. Chris however, can take these 10 min power naps and wake up totally refreshed. It amazes me, wish I could do that.


Thanks for stopping by!
