Valentines Mail Box Makeover


Hi there everybody!  Here’s a really quick and easy project for you.  I found these mailboxes at Target in their $1 section, and decided that with a bit of vinyl, it would be super cute Valentines Day Décor.  So I cut some letters and hearts out using my silhouette, and in about 15 minutes I had a very cute mailbox to display in February. 


I just had to add a heart to that flag.


And a super cute heart with arrow for the back.  Although, I wish I would have put it on another side of the mailbox so it’s actually seen.  Oh well, it’s done and I’m happy with it!

I have been beefing up my maternity wardrobe lately, and will be having a mini series starting next week.  I’ve decided to call the series, “Project Maternity.”  I’m not exactly sure why.  Maybe it’s because it sounds like Project Runway?  And who doesn’t deserve to look cute and stylish while pregnant?  And for those of you that aren’t with child, no worries!  Many of the things I’ve done are simple t-shirt refashions that anybody can do!

Thanks for reading, I appreciate it!

Heart Specimen Art

I have been in love with the artwork above over at Craftaholics Anonymous.  I decided that I could make one too.  I tried it with all solid papers, because that’s what I had on hand and it looked dumb.  Then I talked my sister into letting me go through her paper stash, and tried again.  And I love how it turned out!  My husband said that it looks very feminine.  I think that’s good for Valentines Day décor, don’t you think? :)
I haven’t usually been into holiday décor (other than Christmas and Halloween), but I think that’s because up until now I’ve been a busy student…since I was 5.  And now that I’m not, I can deck the house in holiday décor!  Hooray.  I cut the hearts out with my silhouette, and then used mod podge to glue the hearts to the canvas.  Oh…and How did I get my canvas to look like that?  It was so fun!  I took a foam brush and dipped on side of the tip in red acrylic paint, and the other side of the tip in pink acrylic paint.  Then I brushed back and forth so some places got red with pink on top, etc.  I was going to cover the whole canvas, but I ended up liking some white in there too.  (If that didn’t make sense, I can make a mini-tute on paper.)  Very easy, very quick, and very satisfying.  My type of project.
Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.
