357 Things to Blog About.....

I see that I have waited too long to post- and now I have 357 things floating around in my head that I want to blog about!  But don't worry!  I don't have time to blog about all 357 of them, so how about just a glimpse of what I made for Valentine's Day?  This is the first year that I actually got into the day of Love- and boy did I!

I got these placemats at the Dollar Tree and then used a cookie cutter and Sharpie to add the heart.  The napkin came from DT as well, and I just sewed a felt heart and button to each.

Then I needed something for the middle of the table so I found this candle and holder at DT, placed it on a silver tarnished tray on a doily, and sprinkled some punched hearts around.
Then I Sizzixed up some bees and hung them from the light with a heart that said "Bee Mine".

Then it was time for a craft break.....

Back at it....

Kitchen towel from DT, with added ribbon and piping from my stash- then I embroidered the letters and sewed on a button.  I crocheted the heart and it slides off the button for washing.
Ok, what you are about to see is too adorable for words......All I can say is "Thank you, Aimee Ray!" (She's from Little Dear Tracks over there to the right)

For Ben

For Abby (oops- sideways!)

I worked on these snugglies for hours and was so worried the kids wouldn't like them but they ABSOLUTELY loved them!  And here's Andy's...

It's a box of Earl Gray tea that has been given a bit of a makeover!

I hope you all enjoyed your Valentine's Day!  Now to get crackin on the Spring and Easter crafts!!!  :o)  Got any ideas???

Just darling, Marla! You've inspired me. I thought I was branching out just by making heart-shaped muffins. Next year maybe I'll get crazy and add a candle ;).
