I was looking for a Valentine's Craft for the kids when I came across some "heart-warmers". If you head on over to "lovesome", she has a great tutorial and a free download of the cute little card to go with it!   All you need is felt, rice, and a sewing machine (or you could handstitch).

My 10 year old daughter has recently learned to embroidery, so she handstitched this...

She has a special friend from church that she wants to give it to tomorrow, which means I need to get off the computer and start sewing!  Keep warm and have a blessed day!

What Valentine's Crafts will YOU be working on?

I've got to get better about blogging!

Hello, my loyal followers.  I have been horrible about keeping up with this blog, but things are going to change.  I am going to find time to get "crafty" again...or at least point you in the direction of others that are!  ;)  Here's your chance to tell me what YOU want to see on this blog.  More recipes, scrapbooking layouts, product information, special deals!!??  YOU tell me and I'll see what I can do for 2012!!!
