I've totally been on a rainbow kick lately. I made this page for the SWAT selfie challenge and for Lasting Memories challenge. Selfie challenges are everywhere! It isn't very often I make a page for myself. This time I got all messy with gelatos and mist. I'm really glad I'm able to keep my sewing machine out all the time now at our new house. It's nice to be able to quickly get a few stiches on a page. I'm betting I'm going to have a lot more stitching on my pages now.
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!
