Happy Monday! Here is my layout for the Memory Nest. We just got back from our trip to Walt Disney World. We weren't going to do any character things, but my daughter put this wookiee shirt on when we went to Hollywood Studios. There isn't a ton for little kids to do there and the line was short to see Chewbacca. He was so much fun and was one of our favorite experiences from our trip. The layout is simple, but looks cool in person. I didn't want to over do the layout since it had so much stitching on it, but I might go back and to a little boarder around 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!
