I usually don't do much decorating for valentines day but this year I decided to make some things for Valentines. I took Marge Romney Aslett's class Love Love Love online and it was great. She had tons of really cute ideas for valentines day. So that's what gave me my inspiration. I even Made my Mom some things for her place. So I was kinda in a crafty mood so I decided to make some magnet boards with some frames I picked up at a thrift store. Then I decided to make magnets to go on them. I love the way they turned out.
I have two granddaughters and both of their birthdays are in January so I made them both a gift. For my granddaughter turning 8, I made her a special box to keep all her jewelry or little stuff in. For my granddaughter who turned 13, I made her a book and a box to keep it in. I'm so grateful to have both of these wonderful girls in my life. It's fun to be able to make girly things. Happy Birthday Bella and Sofia. I love you both.
I've been busy making things again. I saw the makeup bags on the DIY dish and decided to make some for christmas gifts. Then I just kept on going. They are really fun to make. So many cute fabrics to choose from. Then I saw these cute mini books on the blog Art by wendy and decided to try them. They are made out of leather scraps and heavy paper. Then the fun begins you can put any kind of jewelry on them. I think they turned out really cute. It beats cleaning the house!
