It may not be always easy, but it is never boring.

I Heart U
OK so one of my favorite things that screams Valentine's Day and makes me miss being a kid again is conversation hearts. I have had these frames from the dollar aisle at target for a while and finally saw a craft at My Creative Departure that gave me a little creative inspiration of my own for those frames.
I started by doing a dry run with each of my frames mapping out my I and U. For my heart I used a paper doily for my guide on the heart shape. Once I had it the way I wanted it I glued down my I and U to the glass with my hot glue gun. I put in some bubblegum pink cardstock in the frame to help the hearts pop off from the frame.
Next I glued the hearts to the doily.
Then I glued the doily to the frame and put in some bubblegum pink cardstock in the frame.
In the end it turned out really cute, was super easy, and inexpensive. All of my favorite things.....
I have two wonderful children Our little man is 5 and our princess is 3. We live in Maine, where my husband is stationed in the Coast Guard. I have been married to my best friend since 2006. We met while I was in the Coast Guard and since then I have seperated from the Coast Guard. I am currently running a home preschool and working on my CDA. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and have lived all over the country.
