The Art of Gluing

mdf heart shapeThe Mosaic Tile Class that was held on February 12th was so much fun!

I couldn’t believe that I had the time to create a mosaic tile project, along with everyone else! Happy day!

Using the rescued wooden heart, from a previous blog post, I gathered china shards and glass pieces.


Pretty cute … if I say so myself.

All that’s left? Deciding on a grout color.

Making Memories

mdf heartWhile dusting … for a change … I noticed all of the handmade gifts that we still have out in the open.

Some treasures are tough to hide away.

I love the feeling I get when I look at them, remembering the day they were given to me. Warms my heart.

If you haven’t done an art project with the kids lately … you should.  Take an hour and help them create something handmade for someone they love this Valentine’s Day. You still have time!

We’re going to be making Mosaic Tile Valentine Hearts today with wood heart shapes and heart picture frames.

Always excited to see where it goes!

Have a great day.

No rest for the weary …

Box stores must have little elves that work feverishly (in the dark of night) to switch out holiday cards with Valentines…boy that was quick!

Personally, I think handmade Valentines are the way to go!
