Hello and Vday Pretties

Well hello. It's been a long while since I've had the time or really the desire to get back in the saddle with this here blog. I find the days just slip by, one after the other, filled to the brim with laundry and keeping baby O on his nap schedule (as best I can), and cooking meals and cleaning up those meals. Just when I think I'm finally going to sit down and blog a little, I get really sleepy and just end up watching The Bachelor or reading other blogs - which is fine because I have a 9 month old and I feel a little tired these days. I can blog and craft and be inspirational another day or year or something. Yeah, I'm not doing much in the way of being creative these days. 
What I have managed to do, I post for you now. A few Valentine's Day goodies. 
How is it that Valentine's Day is even approaching? 
Zoom. Zoom. The year is already flying by... 

I made this garland up while the wee one was napping the other day. It was therapeutic for me. Just a few minutes of snipping and gluing and punching. Love me a little quiet crafty moment.  

Here's another sampling of these cute little clothes pin embellishments that I'm sort of addicted to making lately. I whipped out a few packs for the holidays and now I've put a few together for v-day. They're so sweet and simple to make - just bobbles and paper goodies glued over washi tape-layered clothes pins. I've been adding magnets to the back so they can go on the fridge. They're also adorable added to a package as a finishing touch... 

I snagged these pretty paper flowers in the $2 bin at Michael's. That $2 bin is a DANGEROUS place. It's amazing how fast 2+2+2+ = $25. Ooops. 

So that's what I've got for ya - at along last. All these doodads are up for grabs in my shop, so hop on by! 
In the mean time, I'll try my best not to be a blogging stranger - but of course, baby O does come first, and that's how it should be. 


  1. Well, what you've created for Valentine's Day is beautiful! How pretty and sweet! Be gentle with yourself about being tired and not having time to do all you'd like with a baby on hand. It'll take time, but your 'me time' will become easier to find. Hang in there!~

  2. love love your valentine goodies! some of my favorite items you have made.
