“Cupid, draw back your bow and let your arrow flow, straight to my lover’s heart, for me!” -Smokey Robinson
We love St. Valentine’s Day and thought we would share with you one of our favorite pictures. The art above, which has been in Roy’s family for many years, shows Cupid asleep, perhaps after a busy St. Valentine’s Day. Let’s get creative!
HEART FRAME: We took a picture frame and covered it with heart stickers. A flat surface frame works best. It’s a quick, easy and fun craft. Also, this craft project is very inexpensive – all the items in this photo came from a dollar store. Kids can do it and it makes a great gift! Put in a photo, drawing, or a favorite quote. (“Onward and upward together” is one of our personal mottos.)
KUDOS TO KENDRA! Our crafty friend Kendra creates beautiful wreaths, including this lovely spring wreath. She got all the materials she needed at Michael’s. Kendra used silk flowers (Hydreangas, Morning Glories and Queen Ann’s Lace) on a grapevine wreath finished with a pretty cream-colored burlap ribbon trimmed in gold. It brings a touch of springtime to these cold, snowy winter days. For more information on these wreaths, contact Kendra at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We admire your work Kendra! Great job!
