Do you make crafts and decorate for Valentine’s? I have in the past but I don’t always. This year I have some plans to do a couple things for Valentine’s – just to share them with you here on the blog! I just finished up a dress a friend needed made for a wedding this Saturday and now I’m ready to start creating some new things. Some pouffes are in the works – I washed some European grain sacks up today. I also have some events coming up this year that I need to get going on.
Hey Girl. Ryan Gosling. Cute sayings we would love our husbands to say. Or perhaps cute sayings our husbands DO say! Anyway, some bloggers are posting pics of their husbands with their own ‘hey girl’ sayings photoshopped in. And I just had to join in. Some of the ‘hey girl’ quotes out there are just too funny.

I like to think of it as a cascade of thoughts, photos, ideas, creativity, business, life.
My teenager turns 14 this week. She wants to go shopping in Indianapolis. She shares her birthday with my Mom. My Mom and I are going to take her to Indy shopping. She will probably wear her Colts Jersey (my teenager not my Mom 😉 )
I cannot believe how fast 14 years goes. The seemingly endless cycle of diapers, bottles, juice cups, sleepless nights, etc. has morphed into teaching algebra, sending her off to concerts, encouraging her piano lessons, adding a guitar to our household, a bedroom that looks like a cyclone hit, mood swings to rival the weather changes in Ohio, passing on household chores

How about a post from the archives? This is my valentines decor from 2011. I haven’t bothered to pull this stuff out this year. Between sewing and being sick it just didn’t seem that important. So here is the post from 2 years ago:
This is a post from the archives! I made these valentines last year and thought it would be fun to post about them again. The photos are from before I had my ‘real’ camera, seems like I’ve had my camera forever but it hasn’t been a year quite yet!
