Valentine's Crafts

I finished a holiday craft BEFORE the holiday (and not the night before either. :)
I made this cute frame...(now to find a picture of my kidlets)
I forgot to take a picture before I started gluing...:)
Sorting the candies, and banishing the "reject" ones, lol. My helpers (they ate the "rejects"): At first, I was going to do one row of hearts...then I liked two rows... But I love the way 3 rows look:

This V-day picture was taken 2 yrs ago. :( My daughter was only 1 month old, Andrew was 2.25 yrs. :)

I got this idea from a Too Cute Tuesday post on Funky Polkadot Giraffe. When you click on the thumbnail it takes you to Simply Crafty. There's another version on a blog I already follow, Yesterday on Tuesday. Mine is a combo of the two.


This is the base of my next Valentine's craft...but what to write on the husband suggested Be Mine...I love it B. Mine :D.

NYE 2011

I went to a small gathering at Kayla's (my youngest sister) house last night. There were 7 adults and 4 kiddos (age 4 and under). Here are some pictures I snapped @ exactly midnight:

Kalvin (8 months)
Austin (21 months)
Charlotte (23 months)
Andrew (4 years)

I find it funny that the youngest is the most alert and happy (used to those late nights, I supppose) and it decreases as you go up in age. My sleepy lil boy crashed around...10:30 pm, I'd say. :) Charlotte crashed sometime after 1 am. I left at 2 am, and my sister was just then headed to bed with two still very awake boys. (Kalvin was dozing on and off all evening.)

My only resolution (which applies to MANY, MANY areas of my life) is to GET ORGANIZED. :)

Happy New Year 2011 everyone!
