The Seventh Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper

The Seventh Carnival of Pen, Pencil and Paper

Welcome to the February 9, 2010 edition of carnival of pen, pencil and paper. My name is Melinda and I happy to be the host this month!

I would have made this entry "prettier" and added more pictures or at least something I had written, but started a new job last week, and I am tired! Apparently ordering tons of new office supplies for my office takes more energy than I thought! Or it might be the fact I am used to sleeping until noon everyday and now I have to get up at 5:30am. Either way, I apologize for the lack of pictures, now on to the Carnival! (Please note the links are there, just hover and they will appear, my settings over rode the links an my html skills are limited.)
