My Last Valentine

It is...my last Valentine's Day craft.

I cut these from cotton fabrics
and then painted them with some
mod podge to stiffen them. I glued
them onto a dowel that I painted
green then glued them into floral foam
and covered it with floral moss. I painted the terra cotta pot with red acrylic paint and stenciled white hearts around the top edge of the pot. I added a homemade "I love U" tag that I hand stamped and then listed this on my Etsy. I think it would make a great gift for someone special!
My holidays are zooming by because of this mentality that I'm carrying around. I'm thinking a month to 2 months in advance and it moves the year that much faster! I have to work this way to keep my stress levels down and still keep this fun for me. I've stated many times before that if this ever becomes work, I'll have to stop!
Please don't forget to sign up for my current Giveaway. It ends Jan. 25th. You can click HERE or at the top of my right sidebar (look for the double hearts). Also, in that same vicinity, is a button that I've made for my blog. Feel free to grab that and add it to your blog and, of course while you're browsing over there, go and sign up for all of the other awesome Giveaways from some very lovely people!
Don't forget about our Celebration going on from the OFG Team on Etsy. Type in STLC into the search bar under ALL ITEMS to see some great Valentine treasures!

Stay tuned as there is always more to come!

Hi Vicky;
I really like all of them. First time for me to enter on the drawings. I'm with everyone on "LOVE" the red.
