These are the Valentine's that I stitched up for the kiddos. I got it from the Sew, Mama, Sew website. I thought they were quite cute. Next project? The Little Pink House! It is just way too cute! If you haven't checked out the Sew, Mama, Sew blog- it is chocked FULL of the greatest ideas and loveliest inspiration!

I've been working on Andy's Valentine gifts and I thought I'd pass along the finished products. I just used some stretched canvases, some photos taken by my friend, Samantha, over at His Hands Photographs (she comes to your house! Isn't that awesome?! I have a $50 off card to give you if you're interested!), and a lovely Best Occasions scrappin' set from Wal-Mart. I sponged some coffee pigment ink on the canvases first, and used Modge Podge to seal everything.
So now the question is...which one do you like best?
I sure hope Andy likes them! I'm off to throw snowballs at my boy! Hope you're all enjoying this "February Fury" as the Weather Channel is calling it!

The trip was good and I have LOTS of shots/footage to share, but it will take some wading through first. Highlights? How about some manatees? Dolphins? A precious Princess? Even a pod of migrating whales!!! For a nature lover, it just doesn't get much better than the east coast of Florida. Abby and I set the goal of seeing a roseate spoonbill in its natural habitat before we left OUR natural habitat- and we saw 4 of them!
On the craft side of life, have any of you ever heard of Alabama (Natalie) Chanin? A friend of mine has recently aquainted me with her work and I am an instant fan. Hand stitching. Everything she does is hand stitched. Kind of slow "sewing", if you will. Well I'll let you in on a little secret if you will promise to keep your fingers crossed for me..........I applied for a scholarship to join her (and a few other folks) one weekend in May for a personal workshop! Oh I hope I get it!
So what are you talented folks making for Valentine's Day? I need some serious inspiration! I sure have missed you and can't wait to hear from you!
