Twitterpated with Pink


This has been a crafting-like-a-maniac kind of week for me.  I like to blame it on the fact that I never see pink in my house.  Seriously, I walked into my friend's house the other day, saw pink pillowcases folded with her laundry, and instinctively exclaimed, "Oh, cute Valentine's pillowcases!"  Yeah.  Of course, pink pillowcases are a staple in their home full of daughters.  But for me, pink is a novelty. 

I finished my heart felt wreath and love the way it turned out.  It was definitely a lot of cutting in front of the t.v., but a nice justification for sitting on my rumpus to watch those poor souls suffer on the American Idol auditions.  I still have lots of felt leftover and my b-l-e-s-s-e-d mother is taking my kids away for a few days, so don't be surprised if you see pillows or a table runner pop up on here in the next week...


Another little ditty is this one, an idea I found from Under The Table and Dreaming.  Cute, eh?  And very simple to make.


This one is becoming a trend for me - words spelled in frames.  I couldn't resist when I found these darling white frames on the cheap.  Cut out some white letters, mount with tape on scrapbook paper, and voila.  Instant art, I say. 


And it wouldn't be Valentine's Day without a pic of my Valentines, the Three Men.  A dollar store frame, hot glue, and a ribbon.  A lovely ensemble.
