DIY Valentines


It seems like the down time we enjoy on the MLK long weekend has often turned into the start of our hand made Valentines. Here are some of our past attempts: heart crayons and paper flowers. This year my 7 year old wanted to use the sewing machine to attach painted paper hearts to card stock. I set her up and she was off and running (or sewing).

Sewing on paper was one of the first things that connected Jenny and I. I think it was 6 years ago when I sewed a family photo on to a folded piece of card stock and sent it out for our yearly holiday card. After Jenny received it I quickly got an email enquiring why and when and how! We were friendly before, but it connected us as fellow crafters and experimenters.
