I wish I had more time to scrapbook, as I should have made this page a year ago! Oh well, I'll just have to scrapbook away! The benefit to waiting a year is that I'm much better at editing what photos to scrap. I'm printing off a lot less and that makes for a happy wallet. Since my time to scrapbook is limited to when Moose is sleeping (and only on days when laundry, vacuuming, and whatnot doesn't have to get done during that time), I have to force myself to keep them simple or they would never get done!
Now that the Christmas decorations are down, it is time to make some Valentine's Day decorations to put up! I have seen some in the store, but it is much more fun to make your own. So here is how I made my sweet heart wreath. First you need a hoop (the one I used had about a 7 in diameter), 7 big wooden hearts, 8 small wooden hearts, paint, glitter, ribbon, and some hot glue. I took all my hearts and painted them a solid color and then went back over them and made some patterns or outlined them. I thought they were looking a little boring so I went back and put some glitter on random ones. Then I went around and hot glued the big ones and tried to make them as evenly spaced as possible. Then I hot glued the smaller ones on top of the bigger hearts, tied some ribbon, and then hung on my door!
