Inspired by Tif, I sat down Saturday morning with a pile of card stock and started cutting hearts. I used a little patterned paper and a lot of off white. I tried to stick to three sizes and I cut them all free form. I sewed them together with the sewing machine and hung them with some masking tape. Easy. Cutting took the longest amount of time and I still have a good number of hearts left over for more garland. I love that they are festive but not over the top Valentine's decorations. And seeing them makes me smile - especially good on a rainy February day.
I've updated the blog design - long, long overdue! A great huge thanks to Rachel and Tracy for their help. I couldn't have done it without you! Some photos on the tutorial page are missing - those will be here by week's end. In the meantime, the links should all work. If you find an error, please let me know so I can fix it right away. Thanks!
