I'M SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE!


Welcome to dolly's designs' very first Blog Hop party.

I am very excited and hope you will be too!
We know there are a lot of creative people out in blogger land.  
We see it everyday, and I am hoping that you will share your creative talents here.

No matter how creative one is others' ideas can strike something in your medium that you can use.  
I don't mean to copy other talented peoples creations, I mean there is always something to be learned and applied to your creative projects.

The Creative Blog Hops will run from Monday thru Sunday...So join in on Mondays for the start of fun creative entertainment!
You may share something from your archives, it will be new to us and welcomed.

Rules:
1.  Write a post or you may already have one that you wish to share about your creative talents
Include pictures. In fact if pictures of your creation are all you wish to share then by all means do so. If you wish, share your instructions and materials used:  Tutorials of course will be accepted, gladly. You may share your area in which you craft. Ideas that you have that make your creativity flow.. You also may share your story of when you first realized you had this talent or love for creativity.  I have a main house blog called Hibiscus House and have Spotlight Stories.  You may even want your story shared there and you may let me know we'll be sure to get it on and share.
2.  The projects or items must be Tasteful
we have viewers of all ages so please keep that in mind
3.  The project you share must be your Own Creation or you must give credit to the owner
4.  Please include The Creative Blog Hop Button on right side bar
On the post that you add or link back here  so that others can see and come back to blog hop. I will be featuring you from time to time and it would be nice if your project links back to 
The Creative Blog Hop.  By all means share with your friends because the more the merrier.
 
5.  The Creative Blog Hop is for sharing the creative making process or sharing of your items,
 so sorry*** No Links to Shops*** here.


*** I hope to one day soon, if it is indeed possible have a blog hop that will be solely for individuals to  share their shops or websites for selling. ***

Valentine's Day

The rose is red, the violet's blue
The honey's sweet, and so are you
Thou art my love and I am thine;
I drew thee to my Valentine
The lot was cast and then I drew,
And Fortune said it shou'd be you.

(The modern cliché Valentine's Day poem can be found in the collection of English nursery rhymes Gammer Gurton's Garland (1784):)

Valentine Day Card 1910


Shrine of St. Valentine in Whitefriar Street Carmelite Church in Dublin, Ireland


St. Valentine's Day began as a liturgical celebration of one or more early Christian saints named Valentinus.  The most popular martyrology associated with Saint Valentine was that he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire;  during his imprisonment, he is said to have healed the daughter of his jailer Asterius.  Legend states that before his execution he wrote "from your Valentine" as a farewell to her.

Have a great day!
