It's almost Valentine's Day, and I'm celebrating with another series of chalkboard drawings, this time focusing on sweet and silly vintage Valentines (you can check out the rest here).
It's a short Wrap Up today, mostly because the aforementioned craziness has pretty much eaten my life this week.

Enjoy, and for those on the East Coast, stay safe and warm and get some reading done!
