About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Red and Pink

   All this red and pink is making me giddy!  I want to snuggle up in front of the TV and create....  Instead, I'll be bringing these items to ballet class today.:)  It's kind of like TV, except I get to watch my little sweetie dance- even better.  (except I have to sit on the floor- bummer)  At least there will be pretty music...  

   This week-end these cupids will be getting a "silver" bath.:)

   Mandy made this for me years ago and I treasure it.

   I am having a ball with SWAPS!  I will show more pictures later (can't wait!) but I don't want to ruin the surprise for my partners...

   Such a fun time of year!  We may make some melted crayon hearts like we did last year.  So fun!  Have you ever made those?  Don't throw away your broken crayons!

   I am in such a good mood that I think I will host another GIVEAWAY!  Yippee!  The book below has wonderful craft ideas for a full year.  Even Valentine's Day!  Leave a comment if you're interested and I'll pick a name on Sunday!

Those cupids are fabulous....where did you get them?

Artfulife said...

That looks like such a great resource for parents and children. We would love a chance to win it. Have fun with all the red and pink, I think I have the fever for it too.

Cute little bag with thingie hanging off it. Speaking of thingies, one of those cupids looks a little vulger. Is that what I think it is??
I am guessing that you are making a garland maybe?? I want to make a wreath Joyfullness style. Love hers!!

Hi Lori
Looks like you will be having a busy weekend 'bathing' your cupids. I wouldn't know where to start! I look forward to seeing them in their new silvery glory. The bag with the heart print fabric looks gorgeous. I have never seen melted crayon hearts. Please show how you do them.
I love plate that Mandy made you. It's so special.
Your giveaway book looks great. Please can I enter?
