I really love my birthday! Birthdays = family & fun!
We spent the weekend in Boone with my parents and brother, which means a trip to Goodwill!

But I'm working on it. I am happy that February is finally over! And next Monday is my birthday!! Sounds like things are already looking up.
Wrap wreath with yarn while watching Blue Crush (or the movie of your choice :P). Attach little purple hearts with hot glue. Proudly display on your front door.
Happy Valentine's Day crafting!
Here's my $4-$5 version! The letters are from Hobby Lobby. I'm not a huge fan of the shape of the letter "O" here but it was my only option. I just wish it were rounder. That's the perfectionist in me! But it still works.
Cute?? I think that's a yes!
Heart image I found on the internet.
White vinyl from Wal-Mart. Price: $9.99 maybe?
Wish I had a Cricut. But I don't so I did everything the old fashioned way. So I printed out the heart image, cut it out, traced it onto the vinyl, and cut that out. All this took a steady hand and lots of concentration, especially since I was watching Erin Brockovich. I love that movie!
But I digress...
Peeled off the backing and stuck the heart on the plate.
But I didn't like the white so I dug out some black acrylic paint and added at coat of Modge Podge for shine.
Not my favorite project, maybe it's the shape of the heart. But it will still be displayed proudly. :)
Next, I cut a piece of cardboard and covered it with the fabric.
Into the frame it goes. The glass is behind it.
It took me a while to get it the way I wanted. I used hot glued to attach the buttons. But being the perfectionist that I am I kept pulling up the buttons and regluing them. But look how cute it turned out!
Tah-dah! One down, four to go :)
Everybody always has to see what's going on.
Looks like I've got some work to do!
But eveyone out there in the crafty bloggys makes their sewing projects look/sound so easy! So I decided I needed to broaden my craft horizons.
Silly me. Once again, I forgot to take pictures stage by stage. Basically, I started out with two scarves, sewed them into one long scarf, and bunched up the fabric as I sewed (complicated, I know).
And here's what I got!
Look out, world! Here comes another beginning sewer! :)
Filling the sky and the earth below,
Over the housetops, over the street,
Over the heads of people you meet.
