I was looking through my older craft photos & found this basket I made a couple years back & thought it seemed a little Valentine's Day-ish, so I decided to post it! I painted an unfinished wooden heart from Wal-Mart & added it to a simple basket I got at the $ Tree & added a little ribbon...easy, practical & cute as can be on top of the dryer!
As you know, I am into all kinds of crafting! I would love to pick up felting! I thought this heart door hanger was so cute! It was featured in Better Homes & Gardens. Little accents such as this add so much warmth & charm to your home! And I like that it's in warm colors instead of the typical reds & pinks. A perfect Valentine decoration for those with no little ones at home anymore...like me! ;0)
I found this cute idea at http://kari-youcanmakeit.blogspot.com/ She has lots of other things to share, so check it out! These would be so cute for the kids to give to their special friends or Grandparents! I wish my kids were little again...oh well, maybe I'll get some grandbabies soon to craft for & with!!!
Aren't these cute little pin cushions? They'd make a great little Valentine's Day gift for a Mom, Grandmother, Aunt, etc ... They look pretty simple to make, too! I have seen the little wooden "pots" in the craft section at WalMart. I love the cute fabric designs, too! I think these could be no-sew, as well, which is perfect for me!! LOL
Wow! It's been a while since I posted! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas & that so far, your New Year is going great! I had a BUSY holiday season with my candy bar wrappers, which was nice financially, but extremely hard stress-wise & with my illness, so I am happy it's behind me for now. I have been relaxing & have been taking it very easy on crafting, altho I know the bug will hit me again a little closer to Easter! LOL It always comes back, doesn't it?? I have been visiting lots of crafting blogs & love it! Such creativity floating out there in cyber-space! My next new project that I would like to try is beaded utensils! Have you seen 'em?? They are really cool....google it for some nice images! I just like trying a little bit of everything! LOL I have a new guy in my life & am very excited! His name is Jim & we laugh a lot and have lots in common, so it's a nice time for me right now! It's hard being in the dating game at age 46 after 27 yrs of marriage, trust me! BUT....Jim is making it fun & easy for me right now & I really appreciate that! LOL I'll keep ya posted.... That's it for now...I will try to add some past Valentine's Day crafts to help inspire you because I doubt that I will do a show or anything like that this year for Valentine's Day....maybe Easter....ALTHO-- My daughter is getting married May 9th in FL and my son will be getting married June 27th here in KY, so I may not get to do much crafting at all this first half of the year! Keep me in your prayers!!
