Valentine crafts

The next holiday for creating is Valentine's Day.  I love valentine cards - especially the vintage, cute and funny ones.  I've even came across some rather dark Valentine cards.  Have you heard of Krampus?  The European sidekick to Saint Nicolas?  Google him - he's an interesting fellow.  Well, I found a couple of Krampus Valentine cards:
I made some Alice in Wonderland Valentine cards.  I love Alice in Wonderland!!!  In fact I've established an Alice in Wonderland holiday.  It is July 5th.  Won't it be fun to decorate the house for Alice in Wonderland Day!
I also made an attempt at Steampunk with these wooden Valentines:

Now it's on to Easter...

OK - maybe photofiltre is just as good as Paint.Net.  They're both free! 

Now may Epson artison 800 printer is dying.  I've had it about a year and a half.  Seems like a very short life span.  I'm looking into other printer options since I like to print so many images.  Actually I've had trouble getting good printings from images that look great on the screen.  I've tried all the different printer settings, but no luck.

I've been researching graphics editing software.  So far is looks like Paintnet is the best because it's free!  I've added the link to download the software into my favorite sites.

I've just started discovering graphics editing and it's tons of fun!  i started with the free software Photrefilter, but quickly found it too limiting.  I don't want to pay for software until I find out if I'll use it.

I'll post some pictures I've played with/created.

First post

Since I was a child I lived from holiday to holiday.  Now that I'm grown, I create and decorate for holidays - at least Halloween, Christmas and Easter.
Halloween is such a cool, spooky time.  I love the weather, the colors, the art of the decorations and the light hearted approach to the darker side of life.  But it doesn't last long, and we're moving on to Christmas.

The best thing about Christmas, for me, is the music, not the decoratons.  No other season has such an abundance of beautiful music.  But Halloween is the most fun for creating.  So for my first post I 'm add collection of pictures of my latest Halloween creations.
