Happy Monday! I feel like the weeks are just flying so fast I can't believe it! My littlest guy is almost three months old. Anyways, here is my latest layout for the Memory Nest. I really liked the vertical lines from the sketch. At first I stitched some lines down the paper, but they really did not show at all, so I started coloring the leaves. At first I was just doing a few, but it still didn't have much of an inpact. Before long, I colored a whole bunch of them.
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!
