In an effort to keep the TV turned off, we’ve been spending our time on Valentine’s projects. We’re in the process of all kinds of things. That’s right – we’re starters. We just LOVE to start stuff. We don’t always finish it, but who was it that said ‘it’s not the destination, it’s the journey’? Well, we’ve really been having a lot of fun with this stuff. So much so, that I’ve decided to share it with the world. So in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s day, I’m going to be sharing it here.
Over the weekend we finished Valentine’s gifts for the teachers and Grandmas. And no, I’m not one of those moms who gives the teachers gifts for every Hallmark holiday. But give me a break! I’ve been stuck at home crafting with the kiddos. Anyway, we made these fun little Valentine’s pendants. Ladybug & Buddy Boy used plastic beads. I got to play with the Swarovskys. I’m not much of a beader, but these were fun. The kids love wearing theirs around and dangling them in the windows to watch the light shatter. We ended up with a few extra, so I’m putting them in the FlutterbyGirly shop. If you know someone looking for a sparkly Valentine’s gift, send them my way.
It was actually Buddy Boy's idea to put the extras in the shop, and I promised I’d give him all the profits as a reward for his entrepreneurial spirit. In return, he's promised to indulge me with chocolate and flowers. He’s planning on hitting it big here, people -- and I'm always ready to receive bon bons and posies. Hmmmm...you know…I think I’ll help him out here a little. I’m going to do a give away – US and Canada only this time folks. (Sorry)
