Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is another super-simple Valentine I put together last weekend, again using the felt hearts. Sentiment stamp and a little bling and voila!

Well, my sis arrived and within an hour, hubby had enlisted her help in a project in our storage room! You see, I had been working to neatly "file" several bins and bags of things - many of which contained Christmas decor - into the storage room when hubby came along to have a look see - he decided that since I had half of the room pulled out into the rec room that he would FINALLY build me some shelves in there! Woo hoo! I did remind him that he would be working under a deadline since there were sevaral children coming to the Harry Potter party on Sunday afternoon, but hubby sometimes works better with a deadline - so off to Home Depot he went. So a little more than 24 hours after the idea came about, and some help from Danderella's hubby and my Sis, we have a beautifully organized storage room - I thought I'd never see the day!!! I so wish I had taken before and after shots!

Next up was the Harry Potter party Sunday afternoon - we had twelve kiddos here, some decked out in their Hogwart's robes, eager to watch "Harry Potter and the Philospher's Stone". Everything went off without a hitch thanks to having Auntie around. (I promise to post a few photos of the decor later.)

So let's see - Auntie arrived at our place around 1 pm on Saturday - already she has helped us build shelves and organize our storage room and prep for and host our Harry Potter Party! Now we are heading to Home Depot for some paint - our next mission is to re-decorate Chester's bedroom! Good thing I have some cards ready to share - I think it will be a couple of days before we get to the scrappin' part of our week together!

If you celebrate Valentine's Day - have a great day! Hubby and I have decided to avoid going out on the actual day, but since Auntie is here and has offered to mind Chester and Pickle Pants one evening - we are going to go night skiing on Tuesday night - this may actually allow us to avoid Walmart and the grocery store altogether! lol

Have a great day!

  1. Another great card! Love how you can leave all that white space, you know I would have a difficult time with that.

    I am so glad to hear that the Harry Potter Party went off well and that you are getting some projects done around the house. Sounds like you are going to have a very productive & fun week off with your sister.

    Good for deserve it!
