When I noticed SWAT's drill for happy feet I knew I had to try and get a layout done. I have had this photo of my daughter's mismatched shoes printed out for a long time and it has been waiting to be scraped. As you can see, I'm still very much in my rainbow kick. The embellishments are fairly minimal because the background paper is really busy. It's kind of a crazy page, but so is my daughter's outfits most days!
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!
