T Tuesday: early Valentine edition

Happy Valentine’s day! We are very low key around here with holiday much like the others. Must be more of that Mid-west mentality I so often spoken about.

I was inspired to create a journal page though.

It has hidden journaling under the greeting card I recycled. I like to disguise my journal thoughts when they are more personal and private. My journals sit out where anyone can pick them up and look through.

I added our initials to the heart. Sappy, I know.

Linking up with Art Journal Journey since I just noticed the current months theme is Animals A to Z.

Art Journal Journey

As always here’s a little update on the current photo a day challenge.

10. On the table …small burst of creativity

Happy Tuesday!

What re you doing today?

    It is an adorable journal page with the sweet cats on the fence, a good idea to have something hidden that is special to yourself.
    Happy T day wishes.

  5. No, not sappy. It is Valentine’s Day so it’s ok to be a little personal. 🙂 Hope you had a great T day and you have a happy Valentine’s Day too. Hugs-Erika

  6. I sincerely apologize for being so late for T. I would have been by sooner, but I ate something at dinner last night that did not set well and I got very ill. I still haven’t recovered.

    I adore your two cats on the fence and the not terribly sappy reference to you and your true love. It’s a darling two page spread, and it fits perfectly with Rike’s theme at Art Journal Journey. Thanks for sharing it with us and I promise I won’t peek under the fence.

    I adore your photos this week. You are keeping up very well. And I thought your tea looked good, too, especially since my tummy is still churning like it was making butter. Thanks for sharing your photos and your tea with us for T this Tuesday, dear Halle.

  7. I love your journal page – I did see it on IG but totally missed the Playmobil fort – one of my boys favourites when they were little! I think it is still around as I remember my eldest Grandson playing with it too – hope they kept it! Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx

  8. What a lovely page. Of course you keep your journaling private. Especially when the theme is ‘love’.
    Your photos are great as always.
    Happy Valentine’s Day and a
    Belated happy T-Day,

  9. Born and raised in WI, I get your reference to the Midwest mentality. It’s a challenge when a Midwesterner moves elsewhere believe you me!

    That’s a charming journal spread. Romantic love is supposed to be sappy 😉

    Happy Valentine’s and Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen
