All you need is L-O-V-E...

So, for me after we take down the Christmas decorations, the house just looks boring... and plain. Don't get me wrong, it's nice to pack the Christmas stuff up for another year and get back to normal but I'm ready and waiting for another holiday to decorate for... and that's VALENTINE's Day! Once it hits January 14th, I feel like I'm within appropriate time limits to start crafting and decorating. Here is what we've been working on so far this year!

The banner was just burlap, no sewing or gluing necessary. So easy and I did it with stuff I already had on hand at home. Woo hoo! Free (well, previously paid for) decor! It was a great fun craft for Lily to help with too.

The vertical "XOXO" banner cost me all of $.50 for the 2 sheets of scrapbook paper (which were on sale) and a little bit of time on the Cricut. The wooden hearts were only $2 each, I used a 40% on the large one making it about $1.50.

With my new fancy camera I got for Christmas, I'm excited and ready to do some Valentine's day photo shoots with my kiddos!

Football Season might almost be over...

Yeah, so maybe I should have made these months and month ago but I got some playoff fever and walked into MY Hobby Lobby here in Texas to find Broncos fabric so I felt it was a calling from God that I needed to make my kids some Broncos apparel for the play offs. Of course, little did I know that the outfits would be bad luck and that the Broncos (everyone's Super Bowl pick!) would lose. Lucky for me, I made the outfits a little big so they will be ready for football season next year! We love our Peyton Manning.
