still at it

The pictures are not good... we have dreary weather today taking away all my natural light. :( But I had to share as my crafting frenzy continues...
My kids have today through Wednesday off,so we dug out a Valentine kit they received last year and made some cute pop-up cards. It was a lot of fun and will tie into FHE tonight nicely. I got some miniature mail boxes from the $1 aisle at Target for us to decorate and we're going to be leaving love notes for each other between now and Valentine's Day. I just know the kids will love checking their mailboxes for unexpected treats and notes!

Don't you just love this little hair clip? I cut down some handkerchief scraps (thanks again, Les) and tied them on to a small single prong clip. Here's a tip for that extra fine hair: a tiny sliver of craft foam glued inside the clip gives it a better grip.

Ah, the t-shirt with the ridiculously large corsage on it. I just love it. Hey, if babies can wear huge bows on their heads, then why not a big yoyo on their chest? ;)

I found some simple hangers in the $1 aisle at Target ages ago and finally figured out what to do with them - personalize them!

To go beside those file folders in the new planning center... a miniature magnet board. Materials are a piece of galvanized sheeting, wood cut bases (2 sizes - glued together), paint, sandpaper (for edges - after painting), scrapbooking embellishments (for mounted corners and/or magnets), and my flat glass marble magnets. This board is the perfect size for small photos or sticky notes.


Question: Should I open an Etsy shop?

I love pop up cards! Valentine's Day is so fun. I love writing love notes to my kids.

I really like the tip of using craft foam for the barrette.

Once again, your creativity is amazing!

You're so clever and creative. Those are all wonderful. My daughter just went online with an Etsy shop. I hope things sell for her, and you, if you do it.
