So this is Love hmm, hmm, hmm, so this oh this is love!
As I was preparing things this week to begin to incorporate some valentines decorations into my home.
That song instantly popped into my head! Played while the beautiful Cinderella danced with her Prince.
Valentine's Day is a day for couples to celebrate their love! For my home, this celebration is celebrated in different ways!
The best thing about it, is I have a reason to craft!
I am always looking for ways to change things up without spending a lot!
I am a Lupus Queen who battles her way through each day!
When I set out to craft, I feel more like the woman who is being long gone! Crafting makes me feel like me, and it brings out all the good things I love about me
So join me on this adventure! As I make handmade valentine's decor to rise to the occasion of the holiday!
I have been trying to get my King Charming to allow me to keep our Christmas tree up all year! He finally gave in, after 27 years of marriage he said yes!
So I immediately knew I wanted to take all the Christmas ornaments
off and replace them with hearts. Hearts of different shapes and textures!
But I don't want to only redecorate the tree but add hearts to different parts of the house!
So it was time to come up with a game plan!
I would make a batch of applesauce, cinnamon, and glue ornaments. Also, a batch of white salt dough ornaments.
Because of Lupus, my hands can hurt so bad at times. It makes it very hard for me to use them. Sometimes the best medicine for that is to force them to move! These two doughs were just what the Dr ordered! Now, the cinnamon ornaments make a smaller batch than the salt dough! They may be a smaller batch! However, the smell makes up for it!
Once you have your dough rolled out, choose your cutters! I found the fondant rolling pin worked best! The dough didn't stick to it as easily
Cut them out and place them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and use a straw to put a hole for a ribbon for a hanger!
Make plans to come back and check out what else I have in-store! See how I use the hearts and see a few more things I have a plan to create!
Wishing upon a heart with you,
