Wow, what a year this has become. I'm so bummed that my daughter only got to dance at one competition this year. Thinking about all the money spent for dance costumes that only got to be worn once is rather depressing. Then recital probably will not happen and we already bought all the costumes for that too! So many things being cancelled is very overwhelming. Then the homeschooling stuff has been a small disaster. All three of my kids need my attention all the time. I don't know how I even managed to get this layout done. It's a simple layout so that helps.
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!
