I have been so busy working on new products for MM lately that I haven't had a chance to do much of anything for myself or my kids. But I really wanted to create at least one valentine project before the 14th and I pretty much love how it turned out. And...it was easy :) I used our Je 'tadore Chandelier Kit which you can find here. Since I am loving garlands and banners these days, instead of creating the chandy, I created this garland which adorns my fireplace.
Like I said...very easy. All the pieces were already cut and ready to go. I just had to sew together the 3 shapes using back to back hearts of doves. That way...when they are all connected together you can fold them out to give them some dimension.
The kit comes with four picture hearts...well I have just three children so I decided to use one of them twice and I figured that since Vday is really a "girl's" holiday that little Sophie would get the honor. Well...Ethan (pictured above) was not too happy about that and told me emphatically that it was not fair. He is insisting that I change out one of Sophie's pictures and put one of myself or his Dad...or even better..the both of us. Since his dad and I are not together, I don't think that is going to happen :). So I'm just hoping that he is going to forget about it!
Cute kids right!!! I think so :) I am going to create some cute Valentines for my kids this year...so hopefully I will be back soon with more blogging and craft fun. I'm also working on creating a new look for my blog....so stay tuned. Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
