Valentine's Day

"The day's association with romantic love grew in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").[1][3] Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards. " From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I still love hand made greeting cards.  They bring back memories of special cards made in elementary school and art class for special people in our life.  It also teaches children the reward from both giving and receiving to friends and family.  I have been interested in vintage images for years and admire the art of all the Post Card and Greeting Card artists of the 19th Century.

So in celebration of Valentine's Day this year we will be offering a few of our own hand made cards.  So check back to see what we dream up this month.

To start we are offering a card created from our art painting "I Put A Spell On You" embellished with Swarovski Rhinestones and little red tinsel two sided ornaments for your Valentine Tree or hang anywhere with a Valentine themed display.  Below are the first cards and ornaments we have offered up for bid on Ebay.  You can see them on Ebay here.

If you have a very special person in mind this year perhaps a Original Witchy Painting would make a special gift or treat yourself with our Original Painting also available on Ebay.

 Be sure and bookmark us, we will be offering many hand made Valentine Cards and Ornaments throughout the month of January.

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
However imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give
your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its field.
Wonderful blog!

I do agree with all the ideas you've introduced for your post. They're really convincing and can certainly work.
Still, the posts are too brief for starters.
May just you please lengthen them a little from next time?
Thanks for the post.

Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.

Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a massive amount work?
I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal daily. I'd like to start a blog
so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of
recommendations or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

Appreciate it!

Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues
with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of
hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to
start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
