Project Inspire{d} Link Party ~ Countdown to Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is only a few days away and I’m excited. I have no idea why.  I know for some people Valentine’s Day is a big deal….romance…wedding anniversaries, getting engaged, etc.  For me romance is everyday…it’s being there with someone whether the times are good or bad.  But, that being said, Valentine’s Day is still a holiday with pretty pink, red, velvet, satin, little cupids….and Candy! ;)  

Malia did a wonderful Round-Up of your Valentine’s Day Crafts from past Project Inspire{d} parties ~ I love all of your creativity! 

How To Make Feather Earrings This week I only had the chance to work on one project, these Leather Feather Earrings ~ they were so easy and if you have a hankerin’ for something different I hope you’ll give them a try.

Memories in Ribbon #ValentineCards #shop at Cupcakes and Crinoline I hope you’ll come back tomorrow where I’ll be sharing why I like to send Cards ~ old fashioned snail mail.


Wednesday I’ll be sharing my Michaels Hometalk Pinterest Party Project.

#MPinterestParty This is just a sneak peek!  I’ll be at my local Michaels Store on February 16th from 1 to 4 p.m. ~ if you don’t live close, no problem EVERY Michaels Store is having a Pinterest Party and you can see the full list of parties with featured bloggers here.  You can follow the hashtag #MPinterestParty to see all the fun.

I hope to have more for you at the end of the week ~ I’ll have some company in from out of town so I’m not sure if I’ll have time to create or if I’ll just be cleaning ~ those dust bunnies seem to multiply!!! 


Vintage Button Heart  (9)[9]Carolyn from Homework shared this lovely Vintage Button Heart framed in an embroidery hoop ~ lve!  

f1bb181a3dd2666be91c2a4e5b262560 Gina from Kleinworth & Co brought this to last week’s party ~ Coffee Bean Syrup ~ honestly…I need this soon! I am such a fanatic for breakfast and sweets that this would definitely be a dream meal for me.

Springtablecenterpiece2Did somebody say spring? This lovely Spring Table Centerpiece from One More Time Events has me thinking ahead…and spring can’t come quick enough.
