Pink Floral Valentine Heart

Good Saturday morning! Ahh! Is a day to relax for you or are you busy running around? We have a few household things to take care of , but not too much on the agenda. Of course, there’s the Super¬†Bowl tomorrow. Are you watching or is shopping calling your name? We will just be hanging out at home watching the commercials, while my husband watched the actual game. ūüôā

Lauren and I kind of came up with the same type of Valentine project and we hadn’t even talked about it ahead of time. A little scary! We both used silk flowers and mounted them, hers is on a canvas and mine is on a weathered board. You can see hers here. Anyways, I had a bunch of small boards that Lauren had painted awhile ago, plus some silk flowers in my stash and decided to try and put them together.

I pulled out the flowers I wanted to use, I chose pink,  and then decided on a grey board so the flowers would really stand out. I drew a heart on a piece of paper and then traced it onto the board so I would have a little bit of an outline to put my flowers in.

I did try this a couple of different ways, but ended up using just one type and color of flower. I was so busy gluing and placing flowers, I forgot to take any pictures during. Sorry! But it is pretty simple. I glued them really close together so they would be nice and tight. I even trimmed some of the petals to give it more of a heart shape. I think maybe smaller flowers with tighter petals would have worked better, but I still think this looks good.

I used a decorative stand to display it on and placed it my shelves in my dining room with my other pink decor.

This was really simple, but I think it looks nice and adds just a little special touch to the shelf.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

Corner News-Time for Bling!

Hello everyone! ¬†Today’s Corner News is a preview of an art project that I am working on. ¬†Hopefully, I will be able to give you a full how-to on Friday….

If I get it done on time.

So, here are my supplies.  A board, grey paint, glue, paint brushes, and lots of gems!  Some are scrapbooking stickers and others are just rhinestones.

The first thing I did was painted the board grey and then drew the British Flag on the board.

Then, I started gluing and sticking!  I decided to use pink instead of red and black instead of blue.  But, here is what I have so far!

Not too much, but it’s a start! ¬†I can’t wait to finish it! ¬†Thanks for stopping by where, hopefully, it will be done next Friday!

Corner News-September 24, 2016

Today has got to be one of the happiest days of my life! ¬†And it isn’t even for me!

Today, on September 24, 2016 my bestest friend in the whole wide world is getting married!

Shelby and I have been friends since first grade. ¬†So, for like 16 years we’ve been friends. ¬†Even though we ended up going to different schools after 4th grade, we still ended up staying friends and finding ways to see each other.

I will never forget when we were younger and she wasn’t even sure that she wanted to get married. ¬†And now, she’s getting married first! ¬†It’s insane that this is going to be the biggest day ever for her!

Last year she asked me to be her Maid of Honor and I couldn’t have been more delighted! ¬†I never expected her to ask me to be in her wedding party.

So, because I am busy all day today with my bestest friend’s biggert day! ¬†Hopefully it all goes smoothly and it will be the best day ever!

Bestest Friend

Congratulations to Kenth and Shelby Veloz!
