Do you need a "Sole" mate??

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!

A Felted Heart

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 me! ;0)

Another Cute Valentine Idea!

I found this cute idea at 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!!!

Valentine Cuties

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

Where does the time go??

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 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!!
