So a couple of weeks ago I had to go to a baby shower. Actually, we called it a sprinkle because this is her second child but her first girl so everyone wanted to get her some cute little girly things. I thought I had a card, but I only had little boy ones so I quickly had to make one. I stamped the images, colored it in, and made the flags stand out with some pop dots. I was really happy with how simple and cute it came out. What I didn't expect was how impressed my friend was with it. She had to pass it around so everyone could see it. Homemade cards are the best!
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!
