Monday, February 2


I like a good quick and easy craft for the "smaller" holidays-- something that can be done over an hour or two on a winter evening.  It Happened One Night on the telly, a nice glass of wine, a fire in the hearth, handsome husband reading on the couch and the living room transformed by the time the credits roll.  Perfect.

I'm a big fan of large punches and fancy scissors--  time savers, as long as I use them.  And I do, frequently.  Add some glue guns or sticks, card stock in pretty colors, a little tape and string.  Done and done.

I got the poster above the mantel from Zazzle. My new favorite thing is to design our own decorative art as I did for our Comfort & Joy Christmas-- very affordable, customizable and perfect for those of us who like to mix things up.

Add in a few wooden skewers (does anyone not have those lying around?  We always seem to have handfuls scattered in various drawers for no apparent reason) and anything can become a seasonal decoration.  

Easy peasy lemon squeezy.  All set for Valentines and Bayley's birthday. Ssssshhhh.  Despite what she said earlier, she still thinks the whole world celebrated her birthday.

  1. That's terrific! I love the pastels.

    1. Me too-- I'm hoping they are soft and blend in enough to stay past Valentine's Day!

  2. Love the poster! And all the hearts are sweet. I might even be able to manage this...maybe. ;) Love your movie and wine idea too! :) Jo
