a fast & free kind of holiday project
I've come across 3 or 4 little Valentine projects I wanted to try this year but haven't seemed to get it together to get any done... finally on Sunday I dug (literally) through my sewing/craft/project room to look for some heart shaped paper doilies that was so sure I had... Unfortunately I didn't find them nor the aqua bakers twine I KNOW I have but have somehow lost in my, ahem, mess of a room. Lucky for me I did have some pink bakers twine handy and found this stash of pastel colored doilies that I've been wanting to use, but not use, if you know what I mean! Then I realized this was the perfect project as I didn't need to cut, glue, paste or sew on the doilies and could actually reuse them if I wanted to!
My stash also offered up these cute little heart shapes from Paper Source and I pulled out one of my new teal/aqua colored pens to add a little "love" to each heart.
My trusty yarn needle I use to sew together knit projects came in handy to thread my doilies with twine. Although I had a pretty pale blue and a fabulous pale green, I only used a few of the pink ones today.
I tied on one of my paper hearts...
And I even added a little something new to my built in...
A fun set of "x's" and "o's" are perfect for this time of year.
But my best Valentine is this little gal... I was lucky enough to spend the day with her a couple of weeks ago on a Monday, just the two of us. We took a little walk down the block, water bottle and all. Miss Bee likes to stay hydrated while exercising if you must know.
So we could figure out which mailbox would be holding my Valentine to her... colorful group of boxes aren't they?
Instead of the "what the heck Gigi" face!
We're already a week into February, hope it's been good to you...
