Happy Valentine's Day from the Sagets.

After sharing some of Alex's artwork yesterday (which, for the record, I am wicked impressed with), I thought I would share some art of an actual artist. Or something.

The backstory: March of Dimes is near and dear to my heart--because since having 2 miscarriages, I think it's important to try and give other babies the chance that my three precious angels never had. So when Mandy from Harper's Happenings was raising money for her March of Dimes team, I donated.

What I didn't expect is that everyone who gave money to her team also had the chance to win prizes that were donated by various crafters, artists, photographers, etc. I won a "self portrait" hand drawing.

Legit I won this prize last May, but the artist was really behind or something on orders and so it took until yesterday to get me my winnings. Which is cool, because it was free.

I actually think it's pretty cute, right? Kristi the Cartoon's choice in footwear is a little questionable, but for the most part, it's fab. And she's wearing black, my signature color. Girl cannot go wrong with black.

And because the artist felt bad about it taking so long, she also threw in a family drawing. And I'm not about to look a gift horse in the mouth (or whatever that saying is) but really? Who is the 17 year old midget in our picture? And did I marry Bob Saget before or after Full House made him famous? Also of note: was Jodie Sweetin invited to the wedding?

Anyway, from our family (the Sagets, allegedly) to yours, Happy Valentine's Day!
