so, did you guys have fun stalking bridget's blog yesterday? don't be bashful. i know you were. i hope you read the love story in it's entirety and i hope that it made you weak in the knees. i know you were dying over her wedding pictures. isn't she stunning? i am loving this love story series already.
cannot wait to share more.
here is a little valentine's day DIY for you. here was my inspiration. isn't it lovely? i would so have done that but i don't own a sewing machine. if i was on twitter i would type #whatiswrongwithme? after i don't own a sewing machine. what is that "#" for anyway? i am a little all over the place but i am currently exploring all that is twitter. i think what i love the best about twitter is it's accessibility. i can totally put an @ symbol in front of anyone's name and write to them. i can tweet blogging/creative superstars like ruthanne. we tweeted, twitted?, the other night. is that what you call it? anyway, you can tweet anyone! they may not reply but they will read it, right? it's sort of like the days when i hand wrote letters to
JTT jonathan taylor thomas, except then i never heard back. #brokenheartedmiddleschooler.
on to the DIY:
supplies: pretty scrapbook paper, book pages, yarn, hole punch, scissors and glue.
step 1: cut out a heart and user it as a tracer to make lots'o hearts.
step 2: i glued my hearts onto book pages and then cut them out, so they would have pretty backs. i think book pages are pretty. if you have double sided paper you would, obviously, not need to do this. i hung the garland on our cabinets just to take pictures, i will really be hanging it from the ceiling in between our living room and kitchen, so we will see both sides.
step 3: cut out triangles from book pages for the bunting part.
step 4: hole punch two holes into each triangle and heart.
step 5: string your soft pink yarn through all your dainty pieces. you can only use soft pink yarn when making this, you know.
step 5: hang it up and think lovely thoughts about your valentine.
and last but certainly not least, in my post that has turned into much more than a DIY, let me introduce you to my sweet sponsors for the month of february! they are pretty fabulous if i do say so myself.
