paper and thread valentines

January 6, 2013

it’s no surprise that I’d start working on valentine crafts even before all the Christmas trees are put away.




can’t help myself.  every time I sketch out a new idea in my notebook I just want to try it out.   I love  this cute pink and white argyle pattern.




and I absolutely love this trio of squiggly hearts – they were the result of a different idea that didn’t work out so well on first attempt.




and I love adding vintage keys to valentines too.  Cristybella and I found them at last spring’s Round Top antiques market.

thank you for dropping by – hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

    AUGHH!!! And here I am folding bitty pieces of paper to make a paper pine cone– You’re on Valentines already…..

    YES I KNOW I need to move on to the next holiday!
    I’ll let ya know how/IF the pinecone works–but I’m a TAD late on the ‘making for the holiday’ bit…….OR–I’m exceptionally early?

    k…..I’ll be exceptionally early! 😉
    Oh, but these are lovely.
    I like them all! (go figure…….LOL)

      I’m very intrigued about the paper pine cone – sounds like it could be a wintry garland for a mirror or bed, so I’d say your timing is perfect!

    The stitched hearts are such a good idea, and look stunning.

      thank you Ginny – they’re so fun to make, I’m constantly thinking of ways add interest to cross stitch. Valentines are the perfect opportunity 🙂
