About Me

My photo
I live in the beautiful city of Portland, Oregon. I am a work at home mom and meeting planner, who loves what I do in every way. I think I get the best of both worlds; a little travel and some home time with my little chicklets. In my spare time I enjoy hosting parties, art, cooking, crafting, re-doing furniture, wogging, tennis and shopping. I am going through a journey that I wanted to share. I hope in some small way it helps you.

A little "Love" for my wall!

Guess what?  I made the easiest, cutest and cheapest craft ever that I would like to share with all of you!

I have a Christmas banner I like to hang in my very small entryway and this year when I took it down I felt a huge void.  I was thinking... that space needs a banner year round, I neeeeeed to make one for the next holiday.  One of my favorite holidays is up next, Valentines Day.  It was not my favorite holiday when I was single.  And hearts have always been hit or miss for me.  But I just LOVE this banner!

Super easy!  Just find a heart shape you like and make a pattern.  I just drew a heart I liked and then cut it in half.  It was easier for me to fold the felt in half, put the pattern on top and cut it out.  I used three different colors of felt; red, dark pink and dark red.  I cutout 19 hearts total.  I grabbed some ribbon from my garage (I think it cost a dollar at Micheal's) and hot glued on the hearts to the ribbon.  And Wha-la! 

See!  So Cute!  The subway art is compliments of The Girl Creative, click here to download for free!
