Happy Monday! Here is my latest layout for the memory nest. I spent forever going through my project life cards trying to decide what one to use. I have such a collection of them, since I try to do project life every year and fail. And I'm trying again this year! Last year I made it to July and it was my farthest yet. Anyways, I have a lot of different type of cards and I narrowed it down to this pink #LOVE one and to a wooden card with a rainbow on it. I really liked how the pink poped out on the gray. It won, but I spent about an hour trying to decide, and I really had a lot of other things I needed to be doing then starring at my layout.
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!
