Getting back to normal....










Or so I think....our tree is still up and so are the knick knacks...but by New years eve everything should find itself tucked away again till next year.  I hope that you all had a wonderous and magical holiday and were able to enjoy friends and family.   Ours was a quiet affair...but was lovely.  With three grandparents and one child it makes for a small gathering.  I am so glad though that we were able to be together another year.  It is especially important to me because my dh is working each week far away up by Portland and we only see him now on the weekend.  So thankful that he has a job though! 
 At this time of year I like to try to shoo away the Winter blues with the upcoming holiday Valentines Day. It has been nasty...wet and cold. So whipping up Valentine goodies are just what I need.  I think it is my most favorite to create for.  Something about the colors and the images that I adore.  Some might find it a silly "made up" holiday but I think it is sweet and nostalgic to give to someone you love.  Today I am sharing a few items I have been working on.   All done in soft pinks and blushes.   I recently bought some things directly from Maya Road...the heart bottlecaps and stitched tulle in bubblegum you see.  Love their stuff!  I recently had a birthday and decided to spoil myself a bit.  I will be back with some bright creations as well soon.  Well hope you enjoy and are keeping warm!  Hugs , cherry

So glad to see you back! These creations are so gorgeous and just my cup of tea! I can never seem to grasp that look when I try. We had a quiet Christmas Day with two grandparents and our son. However, the next day was spent with my husband's family who number about 17. Happy belated birthday. I think your choice to reward yourself was perfect!

Or so I do think....our tree remains upward and they are the particular knick knacks...but by simply Brand new decades eve every thing must uncover alone saved once again until eventually pick up. I expect that you all had a new wonderous and magical getaway and also could actually appreciate relatives and buddies. Mine was obviously a peaceful affair...but had been wonderful. With about three grandpa and grandma and one youngster it can make to get a small collecting. I are so delighted though that we had the ability to end up being with each other yet another year. It is specially imperative that you me because my dh will be operating every week distant upwards simply by Portland so we simply observe him right now on the end of the week. So thankful which he carries a career even though!

I love how you glitter EVERYTHING! Do you use glue? I haven't found and good way to keep glitter in place.

So glad you had a nice Christmas with family.
