Ever make a big mistake on a layout? Well, let me share my layout for the Memory Nest's Make it Monday. So, I had the sketch and I had an idea what I wanted to do. I was going to do this cool gelato background and it ended up being a big mess. So, I put to the side and tried again. I made this page you see....well kind of what you see. Originally, I put a nice wooden one and wrote all about my little guy's first month milestones. When I went to put the layout away, I realized that I had the wrong month. These were actually his second month of life photos. Whoops! I could switch out the wooden number easily, but the journaling was more tricky to fix. I had written right onto the page, so I had to cover up my old journaling with new journaling. This made the page very right side heavy. Then I had to add some more bits on the left side to help it a bit. It came out fine in the end, but I was in a bit of a panic for a while. I wasn't positive I was going to be able to fix it.
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!
