Happy New Year! I've got a layout for the memory nest for you! It's getting really tricky to get my scrapbooking pages done as I wait for baby #3 to come. My big belly keeps getting in the way! Hopefully, it will only be about two more weeks. It's so hard to move around or do much of anything. I usually go ice skating every year around christmas, but it was so hard just having to watch. Anyways, I miss being able to do things. What is driving my crazy is seeing things on the floor and not being able to pick them up is driving me crazy. Especially the legos! There always seems to be little lego pieces lying around.
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!
