Valentine's Day Gifts - Westie's












I made these cute little pups for my mother in celebration of Valentine's Day. She has two "Westie's (White West Highland Terriers). So cute! Thank you to AllSorts for the pattern!(http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2006/05/softie_scotty_d.html)

My little one slept for almost three hours today so I had time to create a blank note card and a few cards for upcoming celebrations of family and friends. (The whole while watching Harry Potter in my craft closet)!

My First Cards







I bought a few stamp sets at Hobby Lobby last night and had some time today since there is a foot of snow outside! Here are a few of my favorites...I especially LIKE the birds!

Birdie Tray



I bought this unfinished at Hobby Lobby. I used acrylic paints and a stencil for the birds. I'm not great with stencils so I had to hand paint the details and touch it up. Then I coated it with a pearlized paint for a nice shimmer. Tweet-Tweet! I love birds!

Emma and I made cookies this morning. My mother gave me a cookie press for Christmas and
I thought I would experiment with some pink cookies. Next time I may add something that makes them cherry flavored! Wish I could take better pictures!

Cute Craft Room Makeover - AFTER

My husband and I have an extra closet in our office. I have painted it uber-PINK, bought a table and chair from IKEA and purged and organized! I still plan on stenciling something girlie on the walls but haven't decided what. Like it?
