More Valentine Projects!

I was a busy little beaver this weekend! I can't stop making Valentine decorations!

I made these three little "treat cups".

I used these peat pots that you can get in the gardening department. Just paint 'em, then embellish 'em!

This little shadowbox was made using the lid from the other heart shadowbox that I made. I love the pink bead garland, and I have a thing for picket fences, obviously!

And this tag is my rendition of Elizabeth's New Year tag. I made a few mistakes, but I guess it's ok for my second tag ever. Elizabeth is making a different tag for every month, and we can all "tag along"! So, were you crafty this weekend?



Morning Carol :)
Very sweet and nice treat cups. LOVE THEM!!! I 'm guessing that you glittered them. Super great idea and the shadow box from heart lid...you are on a craft roll and I want to come over and craft with you. Your 2nd tag is great!!
Happy Monday!

If your weather was anything like ours this weekend, it was perfect for staying home and crafting! I think all your Valentine projects turned out great! Don't be too hard on yourself, I love your tag, I'm sure you're the only one who can see the mistakes. :)

I'm in the mood for tags, bags, bookmarks, valentines and matchboxes...it's a crafy day off for sure. Love the great effort you made, and they are all over the top cute. I love working with those little peat moss buckets. Cute!

I think you know that I gave you an award. Come by and pick it up if you haven't. Tell people who gave it to you, share 7 things that people probably don't know about you, and then pass it along to 7 bloggers you enjoy! I love your style. xo Joan

When am I not crafy? It is either estate sales or crafts. Had a dream last night about an awesome estate sale...I found some great stuff! I love those peat pots - they are great to craft with...sometimes I can find them in tinier size as well...fun stuff Carol.

Carol! I am crazy about your RED tag! You do know I love red! You have so many inspiring projects for the big V Day here! I have been enjoying every single moment of taking in the details of each of your photos. I adore your ceramic bird collection. A favorite of mine as well! Have a lovely week, such fun to visit! E
