Some Crafty Lovin

So-You all know how much I love to blog and then copy whatever fabulous idea I can find.
To all my friends and family-I pawn it off as my own. To ya'll-I must give props, when props are due! If you have never been to http://j-a-girl.blogspot.com/ you must go! Only, don't go until after you see all the fabulous Valentine Happiness!

Chris-from Just a girl-she found some hearts at the thrift store-and then redid them. So-I copied. I found some hearts for 50 cents a peice. I personally think that they should have gave them to me-they were so UGLY! Here is one with a little bit of crafty pixie dust and..... You might have to click on the pic to see the heart-sorry my camera is el-lamo!!!


Of course I had to give my rooster lamp some lovin!

Chris also made these, only bigger. I went to the dollar store and found mini size hand sanitizers and they were pink! SCORE!!!!!! So, I brought them home and helped them shine a little. These are perfect for my Visting Teaching Ladies. Plus-I even have an extra for me.


I have been in a dark scary craft place. You know the one where you don't craft at all?! I had to remedy this quick-so I made a banner. OF COURSE! I also had some leftover fabric from a valentine pillow ( which I can't find) so I made a rag wreath with the circle part of a towell holder. Does that make sense? It was super easy and I am loving the look!

I also made this heart art. I saw it on a blog-sorry i can't remember where. There is only one major difference with hers and mine. Hers was nice and straight and perfectly symetrical, mine is not even close. Oh well-I love it just the same!
I have shown these before. I made them last year. On the other side-they say luck.


I found this little gem at the thrift store today. It was only a dollar and she made me happy! I can't wait to fill her for every season!

Thanks for looking! Hope that your week is going well.
You know-that all the laundry is caught up.
A girl can dream-right?!
CHOW!!!

Everything is so cute. I'm hitting the $$ store tomorrow for some of those hand sanitizers for your visiting teachers. I'm thinking that's a great idea to show at this months Enrichment Night. Get those women thinking!!

Your comment about being perfect...laughable!!! Let me break it down for ya...kay? As I sit here typing there are 6 dirty diapers in the corner of my bedroom, 5 loads of laundry sitting on my couch, and I think the last time I "cooked" dinner it was pizza...does that even count?

Love ya girl!
