Their Passion is beautiful. Their dreams are in our hearts right now...I love it.

For the past 3 weeks I have wanted to participate in this little blog above...and I have been creating away for Valentines and during our Blizzard of 2010 (BIG news in these parts!)...only to forget to post anything until about 2am on Tuesday morning!
Don't get me wrong, I think about it earlier and then I get a little wrapped up in the Blizzard that we have been dealing with...the kids being out of school for what seems like an eternity..and then there is the shop + Blizzard of 2010 that is burning a hole in my head.
It is sad really....and I am frustrated in a funny kinda way!
So here are a few pictures of some of my recent creations!
Fondant Wrapped Oreo's
Cozy little neck warmer! Love it..it is so warm!
There have been a few more, I will try to get them up soon.
AND!!! I have spent much time getting my Etsy shop pictures done. I should have the shop fully stocked and ready to run by the end of this week! Very excited. Need a few extra pennies these days!

This is the view from my craft room. It is a little deep on top of the car there!
Inside we were much cozier...I had these pretty things to look at and work with in my craft room....all was good on my end.
Remember the flower pins I posted about? Well here are few that I made. I did change up a few things after I made a couple. I found a technique I liked a little better for putting them together when you use different patterns for the petals.
I made a mistake on one of them....can you figure out which one?? That is the "beauty" of being interrupted 122 times by a four year old. You lose your place....alot.....
Mother Nature is supposed to give us another "dusting" on Monday.......WHY!!!! The Governor lost his cool a little bit today and said..."Don't even start with that....why can't you pave my roads down to the asphalt....just, Don't even start with that!" It was a little funny. You could see the "father" in him coming right out! Loved it!
I think the guys driving all those plows are doing the best that they can!

The kids have already eaten their weight in Chex Mix and Tortilla Chips. They have found my stash of Diet Cokes and depleted it....I have used the last can of EVERYTHING in the pantry for fear that we are going to lose electricity. We are down to 1/2 gallon of milk and a 1/2 loaf of bread.....It is a good think that the kids like Peanut Butter because that and a spoon might be all that is left after today!
Things are getting desperate!
This is CRAZY!
Thank goodness for my craft room.....I am shutting the door and locking it....

I started with the paper template...
But then I transferred the pattern onto this stabilizing paper just because it was easier than working with the paper flower cut outs for me.
Sewed the backing onto the felt and then just glued the felt piece to the flower..this is something I would NOT normally do. I would normally hand sew it all the way around but this was cheap felt and I was afraid if I sewed the entire thing it would rip. I HEART real felt but just don't have any right now.
I am adding a pretty pincushion to my list of projects for the weekend. I hate that red tomato one!

Finally came up with my plan for Lily's Valentines for her class. Very cute!! I love being inspired!
While everyone I am sure is out at the grocery store - I am washing fabrics and getting patterns ready. I plan to sew, sew, sew while it Snows, Snows, Snows!!!
I am stuck with two different knitting patterns right now so I am returning to my sewing roots. I had plans to go scrapbooking this weekend, wonder if the snow is going to screw that up?? Valentines projects are on my agenda, luckily I have all the glitter and supplies I need here so no more trips to the store in the snow.
I am still searching for the perfect Vintage image for Valentines Cards - so many to chose from but one just hasn't jumped out at me yet! I found so many here and last year I found several here. Just too many options for my Craft ADD!!
Tomorrow I will show you more of my favorite valentine links. So many to chose from!!
