Sorry random pic...just LOVE buttons..sigh.
Is that title sappy or what? I know Valentine's Day is a big commercial holiday..but I can't help but fall for this sweet celebration just the same. I mean red/white is one of my fave color combos and they are of course perfect shades for amore. Better than that are Valentine crafts...which are just plain fun to make. Reminds me of being back in school with the old Elmers (what about that cement glue...aghast...THAT smell)making Valentines shoe boxes to hold our cards. I wanted to share a little box (a box you say?) that I covered and embellished and a little chipboard frame I made & covered. I put a snippet of bird scrapbook paper in it and hung it from my lamp. The XOXO...was actually XQXQ...I cut the Q's squiggglys off...JoAnns didn't have any O's...no biggy. Well off to make more....I am on a rollllll. Can I say I am looking forward to TRUE BEAUTY tonight....yes I am hopelessly addicted to it. What can I say. Now where did I put that red Martha glitter at????? Night night!
Thank-you soooo much for all your honest replies about my fireplace....much of what you said as been rolling around in my head for some time and it felt good to have you confirm it all! When monies and time allow...I do think it needs some beefing up on the sides.....the mantle always has seemed to float. So glad that I exposed my unloved fireplace finally. rofl.
