No sleep for the crazy

Not sure why I do this to myself. I mean, I love doing it, but why can't I do it within a normal time frame and at a normal hour??

Since last year when I saw these, I knew just what I'd be doing for the girls' valentine's exchange. But I didn't fully realize how long it would take nor factor in the fact that I'm too busy with kitchen cabinets.

Regardless, last night I was up very, very late making these.


Big Sister helped for awhile before going to bed, but that mostly consisted of me telling her not to turn off my sewing machine, not to cut anything, and not to stab herself with pins. In the end, she "helped" by taking the pins out of the hearts that I had already pinned together and putting one pin into each separate heart.
Not helpful, but cute.




I showed them to the girls this morning and they LOVED them. Big Sister was so excited to give them to her friends and Little cried when I put them back in the bag. Sort of makes the whole thing worth it, don't you think?



  1. Great idea. I made Ella a V-day cuff bracelet and wanted to make one for Huds but couldn't think of a manly version. The arrows are great.

  2. Too cute. I'd like to make something for my students next year. Can you give me details on materials etc.


I'm so glad that you've stopped by this blog & I LOVE hearing your feedback and questions — however, as this blog is no longer active I may not see it!! But no worries! I've moved all content from this blog to my new website and would appreciate it if you visited me over there: Lori
