One of my all-time favorite movies, "Harold and Maude". I think Cat Stevens had a ball doing the music for this movie. Although I have only seen this movie a few times, it is as hysterical as when I first saw it, back in 1971.
Yusuf Islam - Cat Stevens' return to performing. God, how much I missed hearing him perform.
I have been in love with Cat Stevens since I was 11! No surprise my husband strongly resembles Cat Stevens. I somehow forgot to add the 'Cat' to my artist links. How could I forget one of my all-time favorite artists?! I am SO happy that he is singing and recording again. His music and message are as relevant today as they were in the early 70's. A beautiful, gentle man who has been sorely missed on the music scene...

Next, the belly dancers! Carol hired 3 belly dancers to entertain us. And they sure did. Belly dancing is really hard work! I danced briefly with the 3 of them and a few other women. The dancers looked very sexy in their bright outfits. However, none of the dancers was Middle Eastern - I think I looked more Middle Eastern than any of them!
Some more of the artist trading cards I made for the Valentine's Day swap. In total, I made 36 of them. Most of them were made in a 2-day period! It was pretty insane!
My valentines wrapped and ready for transport to Carol's house. I put a lot of effort into creating each ATC and wrapping it. I even created individual envelopes for each card.
Finally, the BIG moment...the exchange. Here is a shot of all the valentines I received. They were truly wonderful. I will cherish and revisit my valentines for years to come. The best part of the luncheon: the special and unique gift Carol gives to each of us all year long: herself. I can hardly wait until next year's luncheon. Thank you, Carol. I love you.
