Love is in the air...

I did a little Target shopping yesterday (with two boys at 9:00 in the morning-Thank you very much!) and found some Valentine's Day goodies.

Gift boxes $1, magnetic note pads $1, and whimsical heart place mat $1. I don't know exactly what I'm going to do yet, but it's the start of a few teacher's gifts. I'm thinking about adding some cookies, stealing copying Chris's idea and VIOLA!

And see the heart thingy? That's mine. It's 5 wooden hearts strung together with fabric. I'm thinking Mod Podge and some old Valentine's day pics. Hmmm...

AND HOW CUTE ARE THESE? (Courtesy of Better Homes and Garden) Cute, cute, cute! Add alphabet cookies, sprinkled with colored sugar of course, to your ho-hum cupcakes.

One is a lonely number

So, did you all see this little project from A Soft Place to Land?

Here's my attempt at the easy no-sew pillow cover. (I got the fabric at Michael's a while back. It was just two small squares that I really didn't have a plan for.)

I like how it turned out especially since I no sew . Here she is in her new home.

And what's that you ask...What is going on with your walls?

Well that is-the goodbye to Tiffany blue-supposed to be replaced with the perfect brown, that has not been found even after 1 gallon and 2 quarts-so we're priming all the walls white- even Hottie doesn't finish EVERY project in one day-walls!

Wood you?

Here is our New Year's day (I have a talented Hottie) work in progress.


Don't let the lighting fool you. With two labs, two projectile children, and four years; this carpet was as lovely as it looks!


The clicking of doggie nails will take some getting used to but is SO WORTH the dust bunnies instead of the NEVER-truly-hair-free-carpet!

We still have to change the paint color (goodbye Tiffany blue) and finish the molding but in this house that's as good as a finished project!
