Happy Hearts and Flowers Day!

Valentine's Day is about romance. Have you ever written a love letter? Put your thoughts and feelings into words and mailed them (email just isn't the same) to the one you love.

Start making a list of why you love them, things you love about them, things you love doing together and what makes them special, to you. At this point you don't need to make sense, just start pulling ideas and thoughts together, like brainstorming.

Take a break from the writing, look for nice paper and an envelope to write your final letter on and pick up a stamp at the Post Office. Getting away from it lets you come back to fill in anything you missed the first time around.

Write the letter, refer to your notes and put them in order from most to least important or the other way around if you like. Proofread your letter before you seal it in the envelope for mailing.

Add some decorations, maybe a few ASCII art hearts printed on the envelope or use them to decoration the letter itself. If you have a colour printer use reds, pinks and white to bring the ASCII art an extra special touch.

Most of all, enjoy giving the letter. Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day!

      You're welcome. I've had my own ASCII art ripped off and claimed by someone else. So it's not something I feel 'friendly' about.

      Thank You "That Girl". Many feel that just because it is posted and public makes it fair game. Like walking down the street and finding cash. Like growing up and the bully saying, finders keepers. And the grown up saying posetion is 9/10 the law. Give credit due, find the owner of what you find of value and karma will bless you in the long run. Scrappers are scrappers, doers are doers, and the creative mind will always find something new. Thanks "That Girl". I can see your smile!

      It does not defeat the purpose. As you wrote, they are DISPLAYED. They are set up as this is the easiest way to display them. Just like any art gallery frames the original paintings they display. You are free to type them out yourself if you want the original text, or find them online.

      Also, ASCII art is easily and frequently ripped off. Here they are displayed with the artist initials intact. Only a few places online care about keeping artist credit with the ASCII art. Most just rip off the initials, some even claim the work as their own. So it becomes a job to track down the real artist.

      Nice idea, but you realize having these displayed as pictures of ASCII instead of the text used to make them, defeats the purpose of ASCII itself?

      I made some of them, not all of them. The artist initials are with the ASCII art, some don't have initials. Only the ones with 'ldb' are mine.

      ASCII art has always been free to use. But leave the initials on the work, that's the only way the artist gets credit for the work they created.
