Valentines Day

I spent the past week getting all my Valentines crafting done.
I made wreaths for my front door with rolled felt flowers and a big felt bow on each one.054
Kennady got a new V-Day shirt.061
Since I don’t have a mantle, I decorated the top of the piano.094
This frame is one of the easiest things I have ever done, but I am in love with it’s simplicity. 096
I saw this fabulous idea for mason jars on Pinterest and had to “borrow” it.078
The garland is made out of old book pages. My kids were astonished that I would do such a thing to a book (the school librarian has obviously been effective when teaching about how we should treat books), but it was really old and falling apart anyway. I have to admit that I cringed a little bit when I started cutting out the first page.089
Finally, I made a felt “Be My Valentine” pillow. The hearts are machine appliqued on and the wording and string for the hearts to hang on are embroidered. I have never done much work in embroidery before and this project made me realize that I could really use some practice. 118
I think we are all ready to show some love around here, that is if my kids would ever stop fighting.
