A Little Late But Posted

Yes I know it is a little late for a Valentine’s Day post, but I still wanted to share and it is the thought that counts, right?

First up is a Valentine’s Hair Bow I made for my niece. Just a cute, stacked boutique bow. Hair hair does better with alligator clips, so that’s what is used to attach it to her hair, although I do sometimes use French barrettes and headbands for others who have ordered.

Next up is the Valentine’s wreath at the Mace household:

Valentine's Day Wreath

I’m quite proud of it 🙂 I knew there had to be words, so I came up with a way to get those on there….Scrabble tiles…..such a genius trend!

And here’s a little close up in case you need it!

And trust me, it’s better if you heat seal the ends before tying them! Otherwise you’ll have to go through every single one of them to make sure all are sealed.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Christmas Decor at My House

Ok, since I did Christmas cards yesterday, I’ll share how I have the house decorated. Now, don’t freak out, but I don’t have a tree, because there is nowhere to put it! I would have one if there was a place and my cats didn’t think it was something to scale!

Here’s the wreath I made this year. We had a storm door installed to let in more light and allow our dog to bask in the sun, and now the wreath we had last year won’t fit between it and the regular door.

I really wanted to make it where I could change out the outer decoration to match the season, but I ended up giving up on that one!

I also decorated our hutch with all of the Christmas stuff..including the tiny spiral tree from before we got married. You can see where I had to end up putting it. As soon as I plugged it in out came the cats to check it out and proceeded to try to tear it down, so up top it went.

And the final decoration I added (with the exception of the mailbox decor, which got blown off in a storm) was to the curtain rod in our front window…..also out of reach and jumping range of the cats. I just got some cheap Wal-Mart ornaments and painted them in Folk Art’s new glitter paint (except for the green, because I couldn’t find that paint…..probably got hauled off by the cats).

Now you see how the Mace house is decorated this year! Not much, but just enough for us.
