It’s been a while – it’s been a little hectic my way.
For Valentine’s day – I did something a little special for my hubby. I had been planning on it for a while, but waiting for the right time. I thought about Christmas…but what better day than that LOVE day right?
I took a deck of playing cards – printed out reasons or things why I loved him. I laminated the sayings (because I’m the laminating queen). I printed out our picture a serious on the front and a goofy fun one on the back. And wrote ” a few things I love bout you”.
I was so excited about this – I put a lot of thought into it, added some funnies in there as well because he and I like to joke and kid too.
This was a FUN special project. He really really liked it.

I’ve actually done this the past few years, but stumbled upon it on Pinterest….along with some other really cute ideas. I have used pinecombs, and Christmas ornaments…both very pretty. Here is a Center piece that I made for my dining room table….which I have now cleared off for my village that covers the entire table. I have now moved this vase to my round coffee table.
Such cute ideas…..
There is just so many crafty things on Pinterest, I cannot help myself!! A week or so ago, a work friend said they had about 30 wine bottles stored up and wondered what to do with them. I told her I’d take them – I would make something out of them!! So she brought me 2 boxes, and I got to work.
This weekend we worked on outside lights (we, I mean my hubby…though I did help with that this year) and I spray painted wine bottles…….and hot glued wine bottles.
Next…more hot glue – and spray paint
SO much fun..and so many possibilities!!
I saw this cutesy idea a week or so ago on Pinterest – the styrofoam balls and the thumbtacks, sitting in a cute little bowl. I thought to myself “ahhhh what a cute easy idea”!! I have a bowl, wooden at my house that has the wooden ones in it – love that look!
I thought this was a great idea – plus you could spray paint this any color you want – styrofoam balls … so many crafty things you could do!!
So when I started out I was like ahhhh this is very time consuming..hmmm I’m not sure I want to do a bunch of these….it’s easier to buy them. But half way through, I was thinking this isn’t too bad really – I could get obsessed. I suppose it isn’t any worse than sewing, needle-point, or something like that.
These could actually be fun – I’m not sure I would spray paint them…but you could – it wouldn’t be hard. You could also buy different color tacks just as easy. You could make patterns – so many possibilities.
Over all, not a bad project – not sure if I’ll make any more. I happened to have some styrofoam balls – so I’m not sure the cost. I bought the tacks from a Dollar General store, $1 a pack – I used about 3 1/2 packs. This is something you could do to relieve stress 🙂 I actually liked using all white.
