Happy Monday!





































































Happy Monday! I didn't mean to post once and than disappear for a week! I had some custom Valentine orders that I needed to get done. I wanted to share those with you above. I did a XOXO, two banners- one spelling XOXO and FRIENDS, and a couple of scallop hearts. I had a lot of fun making them! They are all on their way to their new homes.


I also wanted to share a few new finds! I found the little couple..which seemed Valentiney to me..they are now hangin out on the hutch. I also found the new green frame and the galvanized like tins (for my craft room). I made myself a "C"...for my room w/ some of my favorite papers and a little tag that I hung around my cake stand. You can see a few snippets of my room coming together...the ribbons all in a row and the canisters with the cherries (of course). Well I hope this week is a little slower....our son is playing basketball (his school is 20 miles one way) soooo lots of time on the road during the weekend. I have a lot of catching up to do! Hugs to you all, Cherry

Hi Cherry
Everything is really beautiful. My favorites are the banners. You are so talented. Your craft room is looking great.
Thanks for the Disney advice. Unfortunately everything is already booked so we can't make use of that offer!!! We had to book 12 months in advance to get the flights we wanted because we have to go during the school holidays over here. It would have been a lot cheaper if we could have gone any time. Hope your Disney plans are going well. Is your son getting excited?

Frippery said...

OMG I am so inspired. To much to take in, I have to go back and take more time. Love the little cherry bells on the last photo. Basketball takes up a LOT of time, I remember those days (i miss them now, but not the time involved, only in that misty better than reality kind of nostalgia) Believe me, I have more than 20 pounds to lose, I'm just taking it in small increments so it doesn't overwhelm me. I collect little children figurines but the Valentiney one is too cute. keep it up girl, Pam
