Craft time

My sister inspired me to make a simple Valentine wreath. The heart-shape form cost a dollar, and I used pretty fabric and ribbon scraps left from my failed attempt at making an apron last year. At least some good could come of it!
I've seen these colorful letters popping up all over on blogs, and thought it would be fun to decorate an "S" for my new nephew, Samuel. When I saw this polka dot patterned paper, I knew it was the perfect choice. I hope he likes it! (I found these instructions via an Internet search.)

Adorable! :-)

I have my son's and daughter's names on the wall of the bedroom they share in wooden block type letters ~ hers is pink and his is blue above 8x10s of them framed.

Your S is great!

We are busy making Valentine's today for daddy because he's coming home tonight...thanks to you and your sis for the other decorating ideas!

Have a great day!

Hi Carrie! Bad me...I haven't been by in almost a week. It's been a wild, crazy and busy week for me, but things have calmed down and I've enjoyed getting to "catch up" on what you've been doing.

Your wreath and the letter sure turned out cute. Good job.

Yay! Your box came today - so I knew I was allowed to check your blog! :)

I love the "S" and it will look super cute on Samuel's door!

Also, your wreath turned out great!

Love you - Monica
