Thought I'd share a pic of my finished Valentine "LOVE" sign in action in my kitchen. (Here is how my $1.50 Love plaque looked when I bought it.) I also borrowed the idea of paper wrapped candles from Imperfectly Beautiful and absolutely love how it looks!! Definitely going to do this again.
I love the fun paper!
Here's why I'm so excited about a new fun use for pretty scrapbook paper. I
I found out that scrapbooking makes a huge mess and I don't really have a place in my house to leave it out all the time and what a pain it is to pick up and put away every time. I aslo found out that I am such a stinking scrapbooking perfectionist that it would take me like 4 hours to do one page, who has the time for that?! I don't. Why did it take me so long? I don't have to be such a perfectionist on my silly scrapbooks, I just can't help it.
I found digital scrapbooking (thankfully!) and really like it, I am 2 pages away of completing my first album but have put it on the back burner as I just have too much else to do. So, I really have 3 unfinished scrapbooks... awesome. Anyway, I'm so excited to be able to use some of the super-cute scrapbook paper I see in the stores but have been avoiding since I know it will just go in a cute little case in my basement. Woo hoo! Thanks Imperfectly Beautiful for your Awesome idea!
Back to Valentine's day... last night we celebrated at home because Deuce (as in #2) the babe is sick so we stayed home with him and put him to bed early. For a special Valentine's day dinner I splurged and got us each a whole Lobster! They were pre-cooked which made it not so... icky... and they were on sale at Jewel for $8 each, I think the sale runs through the 16th so get on over and get one. It was deelish and such a nice treat.
Anyway, I hope you and yours have a super romantical (no, that is not a mis-spelling, I just said romantical, stole that word from my sis-in-law and love it) Valentine's Day!! :)
