Getting ready for the Valentine Partaaaaaaay!

So just working on a few more crafts for the upcoming Valentine Cardmaking/Craft Party I'm having. Had my mom over this weekend helping me get ready and she came up with an idea to use up some of my toilet paper tubes that I had all ready and flattened for notebooks but hadn't used yet.  We just squared them all up and covered and blinged and bought some green florist foam to put in the inside of the squares to hold the suckers for a centerpiece for our party!

Then I found the CUTEST tutorial for mini ice cream cones here: and had to try them for a co-workers birthday gift that I'm bringing in on Monday. But just so you know..this was soooooooooooooooo hard for me!  Cutting those lil wafer cookies without them breaking was a nightmare!  But...I must say the end result (and I did get 12 done) was aaaadorable!

I also had a few coffee cans laying around that my mom and I needed to pretty up for holding scissors, glue, or cardmaking stuffs at the party to come!  Just wrapped em up and taped the paper on with tape gun, then wrapped ribbon through grommets (like my mom showed me..hehehehe) and added some beadwork.

And the boys were very busy painting our foyer!!  Yay no more yucky wallpaper residue and actual painted walls woooooootay!


  1. Wonderful projects...but gotta love your sign!

  2. I just had to have it when I saw it! Fighting teenage rebellion daily is a tough battle but the sign inspires me to stay strong! lol!
