Happy Crocheted Valentine's Day!

With my latest obsession for all things crocheted, I just had to crochet a little something for my girls for Valentine's Day! I whipped up these little bags last night based on a pic I saw on Crochetville a couple weeks ago. (Wouldn't you know it? While searching for the link to that pic, I find that there's a free pattern ... could've saved myself some time ... {{sigh}} ...) They didn't turn out at all like I'd pictured (I've got to learn how to do an oval base), but I am pleased with the finished projects nonetheless.
Yes, those are new toothbrushes ... we are fanatics about brushing around here ever since my younger daughter had to have tooth work done just a month before her second birthday. And, no, it wasn't because of lots of candy ... we didn't give our kids anything sugary for the first two years. The dentist said she has very aggressive saliva ... I'd never heard of that before, but it has sure changed our brushing habits! Anyways, they now get new toothbrushes for just about every holiday ... great excuse, huh? LOL! But don't worry, we're not heartless ... there are some cute M&M containers in the bags and some heart-shaped brownies in the fridge ...

Have a Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Altered Art Book Page Thingy

I'm not exactly sure what to call this ... a group of ladies, including my mom, are doing a round robin where we prepare blank pages for each other to decorate according to our chosen themes. Should be fun!

I chose the theme "Opposites Attract" ... I want each of the other 3 ladies to make 2 pages that each represent 2 opposites. I started the ball rolling with the opposites of chaos and order:
I can't wait to see what the others do with their 2 pages! I sent these to my mom a couple of weeks ago and she's already done with her pages and has sent it on to the next lady. So exciting! When we get our respective pages back, we plan to put them together into some sort of accordian book that stands up ... not sure yet just how I'll do that, but I'm not going to worry about it until I need to LOL!

For now, I just need to concentrate on the theme of the pages I'm working on now ... "flourish". I've got a few ideas brewing, so just need to sit down and start actually doing something about it!
