“Freezing
cold winds,
biting chills, and
white snow fluffed hills
Valentines day, oh how gay!
presidents’ day is coming our way.
February, sweet and small, greatest month of all.”
– Eric Lies – 28 Word Poem for February

 

Hello, stampin’ friends!

We have 29 days in February this year! It just occurred to me that this means we have an extra day in Sale-A-Bration, right?! We have an extra 24 hours to craft and shop! What are YOU going to do with your “extra” day this month? Plus, are you celebrating your birthday this month? If so, email me at debbie@secretstamper.com and give me your full name, mailing address as well as your birthdate and I will send you a card! 🎂

 

Fun Facts about the Month of February

Today is Groundhog Day, which is celebrated on February 2, and came about because of a German superstition. They thought if a hibernating animal cast a shadow on February 2nd that winter would last for another six weeks. If there was no shadow, spring would come early. Shadows or not, Michigan always has another 6 weeks of winter!
