A Floppy Valentine

Some of you might remember that by the end of the 1980s, the 5¼-inch disks had been superseded by the 3½-inch disks for computers. By the mid-1990s, the 5¼-inch drives had virtually disappeared, as the 3½-inch disk became the predominant floppy disk. The advantages of the 3½-inch disk were its smaller size and its plastic case, which provided better protection from dirt and other environmental risks.

Beadboard Valentine

 Last  week as I was cleaning out my barn, I found many small pieces of wood trim. If you saw My Unordinary Valentine, you know that I used the trim pieces to make that valentine. I found a piece of bead board that we used in the bathroom. My husband cut this piece wrong and we were going to throw it out, but I thought it might make another valentine for the front door at our other house. This one is a more traditional valentine.

My Unordinary Valentine!

I wanted to do something different for my Valentine decoration this year, but what? I was cleaning  out some wood in the barn and created a pile of wood trim pieces that I used for testing paint colors. I hated to throw them away, but they were small pieces and not really "Valentine" colors. My mind started to work and I thought, why not a Valentine plaque. So here is what I created.

Now let me tell you how I did this.
