happy valentines day
ah valentines day. the little is now big enough to need valentines for her pre-k friends. i went to target and was completely overwhelmed with the sheer ugliness of everything. particularly the justin beiber valentines. [can i get a WHAT?!?]
and of course being surrounded by amazing blog people like sally who offer these darling printables for valentines day ... well. i thought i should make some.
a quick trip to michaels for little craft bags, some printing of oval stickers from my office supply stash, a little washi tape from my stash [target] and voila.
little non-character/celebrity valentines. much better. and so fun. i wonder how long i get to art direct these. at some point she'll definitely have her own ideas... she already does, but i started while she was sleeping so... sneaky mama. she was completely excited to stick one chocolate in each baggie. very sweet.
i also made this silly paper doily wreath. truth be told i started it for the holidays, but never finished it. i think it's more valentiney anyways. [and yes oval. i had no idea i'd be in a theme here].
just some eye candy for you. i had this crazy idea where i wanted to do value scales with embroidery thread. so i went and got 10 steps in 4 colorways. not sure where this is going, but it looks pretty doesn't it?. thanks DMC for having 484 colors.
