Happy Sinterklaas Day! I'll celebrate by sharing my layout for the memory nest. I managed to get a cute picture of my kids for my christmas cards! I actually got a few pictures, but this one is my favorite! I wasn't sure if I was going to scrap a black and white version or a colored one, as my kids have some really interesting color combinations going on. In the end, I found the bird with a pink hat and decided that the color one would win.
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!
