Free Printable– Valentines Day Ombre Art


I had great plans for decorating for Valentines Day this year. But sub-zero temperatures,  frozen pipes, a killer cold/flu that hit all of us, and two rounds of stomach flu have kind of put a damper in my plans. I sure hope 2013 takes a turn for the better, and soon! I’m pretty sure I’m […]

Heart Shaped Brownie Bites for Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays to make treats for. I love coming up with recipes that involve chocolate, cherries, and heart shapes.

Valentine’s Day Craft- Number Plate


I meant to get my winter decor out a couple weeks ago. But the hallway wainscoting took longer than I thought, so I have decided to skip ahead to Valentine’s Day. Because then instead of looking like I’m behind, I will totally look like I am organized and ahead of the game. Who’s with me? […]
