Valentine's Day Banner

This isn't even a tutorial because, well, the picture shows us all we need to know. I saw some really cute ideas on Pinterest, so I incorporated those ideas and came up with my little banner. The little "flags" are 3 1/2" wide by 4" tall. I made my own template, and yes, I AM proud of myself, since my talent with paper and scissors is non-existant. The paper is from a little square pack of scrapbook paper from Meijer, and the hearts are just construction paper. Easy? Definitely. I really like the look though - it's valentine-y without being all crazy red and pink. 
Meanwhile, I'm still racking my brain trying to come up with a Valentine's wreath. 

Thanks for stopping! Come back soon for some tutorials.

Unfinished Friday: The Easy Bib

Sounds like a really great title, eh? Well, the fact is, the project is almost finished. All it needs is some velcro and some knot-tying. 
I snagged this cute pink polka dot flannel at Walmart, of all places, for $1.85. It was in the remnants bin, so I figured I might as well grab it. As it turns out, it's soft and fairly decent quality, even after washing. 
I dug out a bib that I liked, traced it, sewed, and out came this bib.

It is just a tad crooked and uneven, but hey, what do expect when you're hurriedly sewing with no lights on? I was in such a hurry, I had no time to turn on the lights. In any case, with some lights on and a little more precision, this will be perfect. The double layer of flannel is the perfect thickness, makes it reversible, and oh-so-soft! I can't wait to make some more. Hint: I got some Riley Blake chevron AND some elephants. 

I'll have the tutorial up in a few days. Meanwhile, happy crafting! Thanks for stopping by!

Snowed In!

The weather outside is....frightfully delightful! Wind chill of -45, therefore we aren't going outside much. Yesterday, however was a different story.
We're pals.

40 mph gusts today made for some beautiful drifting!

Just chillin'.
