Happy Valentine’s Day!


Have a great V’tine’s Day!  Sending you and yours L-O-V-E! 🙂

Nature plus bling = Silver Glittery Pine Cones


Before I put away the Christmas pine cones from last year, I decided to paint and add glitter to a few.  I painted them with silver spray paint.  After they were dry, I glued silver glitter on.  I think they came out pretty good!

My Next Craft Project: Handmade Valentine Cards!


I need a craft for this coming weekend.  My vintage photo book is almost done but on hold until I get some folks identified in the pictures.

So this weekend I will make handmade Valentine’s.  I’m not sure what I’ll do exactly but I’ve got plenty of ideas on Pinterest.  I plan to make them with things I already have.  I can’t wait!


Craft Project: Vintage Photo Book

uncle ed

I have a box full of old black and white photographs of family.  They go back in time to my grandmother as a girl (early 1900s) to as recent as me as a baby (1964).  I plan to make a photo book with the best pictures and share names and things I remember about the family members.  I plan to make one book for me and a copy each for my brother and sister for Christmas.

First I chose the pictures I wanted in the book.  The next step is scanning the pictures.  That is not my favorite step but it is highly important.

Next I will upload to Shutterfly, choose a book format, and arrange in a book.

I am excited about the project because it involves craft, history and family.

The Alphabet of Our Love Book

I made a book for my husband for Valentine’s Day.  Luckily he doesn’t read this blog.  🙂

I started out with this idea I found on Pinterest.


I decided to make it in a photo book format even though I wasn’t going to use many photos.  I made one on Shutterfly.  If you’d like to see it, please do!
