Valentine Candy Box Album Kit from E

A sweet Pink Valentine Candy Box Scrapbook Album From Elizabeth from Bluebird Papercrafts.

Elizabeth is the Queen of Paper crafts and making her own patterns. She orders my pom pom birds by the dozen. She makes her own pom pom critters that are super cute and they are usually adorned with felt clothes.

It looks just like a Valentine candy box.

Elizabeth even included all the coordinating papers that fit the theme perfectly!

Hooked it on the handle of my china hutch for now. I have to decide what pictures to fill it with.

Happy Valentine's Day

Just in time for Valentines

With not a minute to spare. The little pink lighted tree is loaded with Valentine goodies.
It may even be overloaded...but can you have too many pretties and sweets?
My heart from E...very special to my heart.

One of my pink lovebirds. Can you see the pipe cleaner garland?

One of my small cupcake cottage ornaments...sugary sweet for sure~

A variegated pom pom with rick rack hanger.

I love those milky white glass bulbs. Also added some vintage ribbon still on wooden spools.

I spy a red glitter lollipop in the background :)

Wooden Cherries hiding in the back.

Lots of goodies right there ^

Purchased those glittery puffy hearts from Dollar Tree...8 in a pack. They will appear again on this post.

And there are more glittery puffy hearts. Used some sea salt I had hanging around in the pantry for years to a pretty glass vase. A pretty pink polka dot ribbon ties it up. The Vintage Valentine cupid clown is from Mary. You have to see her collections.

2 more pink trees that I boxed back up..need more Valentine goodies to fill them up~

Some red ceramic cardinals to top off the shelf <3

Happy Valentine's Day Weekend,

Pastel Doily Garland

Sassy Sanctuary
is where I saw this Pastel Doily Valentine Garland...Easy Peasy. I had all the materials so I whipped one up in under an hour!!

All this prettiness while I was watching the Super Bowl...I can multitask! I added beads in between my hearts on this one:

This is my garland. Taking one to work to decorate my office window and the other one is going to a friend.

The Blizzard of 2011 is now behind us. I have been off work for a entire week. Two days for sick days and the other 3 for Blizzard days.

The drift in front of the house is about 3.5 feet tall. I'm not sure when we will see our front sidewalk again...our snow blower broke doing the driveway.

Have a great and warm week,

cabin fever

This flu bug is still hanging on for dear life. Between not feeling well and the Blizzard of 2011 I have been in this house for over a week now. I have left the home twice this week. Once to the bank's drive-thru and the second time to pick my daughter's books up from the library that were on hold. Big Whoop...I have serious cabin fever. I am very ambitious ---I also picked up 4 books for me to read!
Looking forward to Monday and hope I can go back to work and get back in a routine. I desperately need it for my sanity.

And now to start one of those books......

Happy Weekend.
