Here is my bright page for The Memory Nest. It screams summer. I think I'm ready for winter to end! I just took down my chirstmas tree, so I want my long sunny days back! I've also had the never ending cold. I don't know why I'm saying had, because I still have it! ugh! Anyways, this is a simple page, but it has a bunch of stitching on it that took a while to do. Every page seems to have its challenges. This time, I couldn't decide if I should go with my black and white photo or with my bright color one for the layout. They both worked really well, but in the end the black and white one won. I have a bunch more photos from this day, so I'll probably do another layout with the color photos. Well, hopefully I'll get around to 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!
