I had such a nice photo shoot on Sunday with this sweet Family. We had been corresponding by emails prior to our session and I felt like I knew them already. I heard about Big Brother’s many interests, but was even more impressed to see them in person…What a smart, engaged, well-rounded little guy! He can play the guitar…

Happy Monday! I have a good feeling about this week…I think it’s going to be pretty great, and for no particular reason. Maybe it’s the sunshine outside as I write this. Anyway, here is a short & sweet little tutorial on making your own quick & easy Valentine’s Day Wreath…Spruce up your front door with something festive! For less than $10 and a short evening of crafting…Why not?
I wanted to take a moment to post about these hat patterns, in the event that there are any readers out there who think it would be fun to crochet something simple, but are a tad intimidated to start. Enter…Adrienne Engar. Her instructions are SO easy to follow. The patterns I bought from her were the first hats I ever crocheted…and they’re getting a ton of use. (Resources at bottom of post.)
Post Update: I’ve just learned about a current Project put on by “Craft Hope”, requesting that people make crocheted beanies and tote bags for pediatric oncology patients. Want to get crafty?…I’d love to get a small group together to make some things for this wonderful Project.
A list of supplies needed:
1. Make N Mold Products: heart-shaped molds, 2 colors of melting wafers, lollipop wrapping kit, decorating bottle or toothpicks (available at craft stores, like Michaels, or online).
2. Packaging Supplies: gardener’s twine from Michaels, pink & white baker’s twine or ribbon of choice, scissors, hole punch, double-sided tape, washi tape (optional), thick cardstock available at Michael”s, cute photo
And that’s it…simple, sweet, & homemade! Who wouldn’t love to get a Valentine Card like that?
We used a plain white background (my personal favorite, if you haven’t noticed…When it comes to lighting I love clean & crisp!)…But, for fun, I’ve retouched these with a vintage tone…
