Are There NEAT Creative People Out There??

BUILD A VALENTINE WORKSHOP...AT THE KITCHEN TABLE.
Yep, had to stop in the madness to have some nourishment.
It can completely wear a person out using all their creative juices at one time!

That is glue from a paper doily heart...do you have a better way to glue the little buggers?

Pretty paper....

Here is the result of all that creative juice!
I even handmade the wittle envelopes!

While at Wal-Mart..gag...I found some Martha Stewart kits on clearance for $2.50.
I can't BELIEVE the original price was around $8.00...no WAY would I EVER pay $8.00 for that kit.
Anyhow, I like the little honeycomb fruits and used them and made my own cards.
Instead of making my own cards, I used her cards as a skeleton....
The PEACHY card is for Regan.
This one is Carly's....she's my vintage girl.
I used the vintage valentine paper....isn't it adorable?

Then I used the APPLE.....



Here is Sydni's card....She is our sweets freak.
She was at one time on a baking kick and wanted to start making cupcakes for everyone....yah, I think that last a whole 2 minutes.


So, needless to say...she got the CUPCAKE.


No, you aren't seeing double...I made a vintage one for my sweetie!!
I'm sure he wouldn't expect anything else....

He got the PEAR. Get it? Pear/pair? I know, I'm funny like that!!

Well, the Valentines are done....and now, I'm sure you are wondering about that mess I made.....





TA DAAAAA.....back to normal!!! It took me less than 15 min. to get it cleaned up.
I love my FLYLADY timer.....I could have easily looked at that mess and said, "Ewwww" and just left it. Instead, I got out the timer and got busy....
I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day....I am headed off to a secret cabin hideaway with my wonderful man!

Funny. I used the SAME vintage paper (from Hobby Lobby) for Troy's envelope. I did a blue and red card and then used the adorable vintage for my envelope (which I messed up on), but if it was perfect, it would look store-bought, and well, mine were from the heart. Your's look wonderful!
