Valentine/February Decorations

I got the crazy craft itch again this month, so the girls and I decorated the house a bit. The first decoration was inspired by my friend Max - she made 2-3 of these for the lunar new year and I thought they were so neat that I decided to make one with the girls. It only took her 40-45 min... but it took me 2 hours. :) Amazing what you can do with some sticks, tissue paper and hot glue!This is my favorite! It was inspired by Lily who had been wanting to make lady bugs. Don't know where she got that desire from, but she was asking me about it, and then she said, "hey mom, instead of black dots on the wings we should do hearts!" Clever girl! So I came up with this for our window. It makes me happy everytime I look at it.
Heart snowflakes cuz I'm still hoping for some snow.... One can dream. :)
Heart garland.
Paper heart wreaths that that the girls wanted to make.


  1. I love them!! I wish I had the time/energy/motivation to make some cute crafts of my own. I just recycled last year's. And the white vase with the "flowers" is beautiful. Could have fooled me that they weren't real! You are so much fun!

  2. Wow, you almost make me want to be crafty! Your cute clever Lily is going to just as artistic as you, putting hearts on the ladybug wings.
