Long time no chat! :)

My goodness, I am sorry I have been MIA!  WOOOOO, things have been very chaotic here.  I apologize.  I meant to share these darling scans with you sooner, but if you aren't able to use them for Valentines this year, maybe you can use them next year.  I found some great valentines while I was out hitting the antique shops recently.  Some are from the early 1920s!  Wow, it was so neat looking through them.  I am sharing some of them, hope you enjoy them too ~

 There were a lot of little folding card type valentines.  Here are a few (I scanned them open and closed) ~


This scan has multiple valentines, just crop out what you do not want (the bottom right red square-ish valentine is one that is pictured several valentines above, scanned open front and open back) ~

This is a stiff little card, similar to a greeting card ~
Inside portion ~

This fun little valentine folds twice, like a regular little card. 

I hope you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day and week!  Stay warm too!  Happy creating ~ Pam

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
