Been Creating Again...LOL

Although I hope you won't be too disappointed that it's not a card. This is something I've been working on for several days. Not that it was so very hard, but time consuming. I didn't want to work on it while the girls were home, so they'd be surprised.


I got the triple heart decoration at Joann's the same day I got the other stuff I posted earlier. I really liked the hearts, but it was a teensy bit small for the area where it's hung. I saw this idea. I just tried to find the link that led me to this blog, but I can't. I'm sure I clicked on a link from another blog, then I bookmarked the blog where she shows how to create this.  It's supposed to be a heart and I hope you can sorta see it. I cut three different fabrics into squares and hot glued them to a styrofoam heart. Then I added some tulle glued to the back for hanging. Anyway, I thought it sure added a nice touch to the wooden hearts.

And, I found this cute little angel at the thrift store this weekend. I've had my eye on it, and it went on sale this past weekend, so when I saw it again, I figured I was supposed to have it. *Ü*



Oh and I was able to find where I got the inspiration for the candy hearts topiary. Here you go!

Normally, I'm not so "into" decorating for the holidays, but lately I've had a strong urge to spruce things up a bit. I've been reading several crafty type blogs and some of the crafts they show are just too fun to resist. It helps that the girls really like seeing what I come up with. *Ü*

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you are having a great week.

So cute! Love the door decoration and bet the girls loved it, too. The little angel (very sweet) reminds me of stuff I used to make. Hate that I had to give up sewing for small-space living.

Enjoy the evening!

VERY cute, Jeanne! I love your door decorations --LOVELY and so festive!

Your fabric heart reminds me of a styrofoam heart wreath (but it was open in the center) I made YEARS ago...I hot glued sunflower seeds (and a handful of pumpkin seeds here and there for contrast) in rows all the way around that thing (all except for the back) --took forever, but I loved it.
