Valentine's Day begins...

I love Valentine's Day and I love it more because I am a teacher and I can do many cute arts and crafts with my class. I started by making of couple of things to decorate my house with. I am planning (key word--planning) on creating a Valentine's vignette in my dining room. But, seeing as it is already January 21st, I would not hold your breath. :)

I have not told you all this yet, at least I don't remember telling you-- but for our 1 year anniversary, Taylor gave me a Cricut. He was very creative! Since he did his research, he learned that the first anniversary is the paper anniversary-- SO I GOT A CRICUT!! I have just begun using it and figuring it out. It has been fun to use and I plan on getting every penny out of that little machine!

My first project was to create some V-day decor. I dug in my closets and found some frames I bought clearance at Hobby Lobby, for about $5. I grabbed tons of super cute scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby's 50% off sale-- LOVE THAT! Here is what I have made so far!!

For my first try on the machine-- not too bad! I hope to get the vignette done this weekend and I will post pictures soon! Have a great weekend!!


  1. very cute projects. That machine is on my list of things to get.

  2. It looks great! I borrowed my friends Cricut and fell in LUV. Now, I need one ASAP!

  3. Those are SO adorable! Good job. :) I feel as if I have a creative side, and I would love to see it more often, but unfortunately I do not have the patience :-/
