When you find you, come back to me.

Thanks for the words of encouragement on my last post. Things are never as bad as they seem and I was just wishing I could share details of my life here but knowing I couldn't. I appreciate all you who actually take the time to read my words and leave me wonderful words in return. It really makes my day.

This Sat we had a little shindig for my husband. He turned 40 as you may or may not have read in the last post. It was him and his 2 best friends he has known since he was a child. We all hung out and they had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed their antics. They made me laugh. Got some great pics I posted a few on my facebook if you wanna check them and all the shenanigans.

Hubby and I went to go see Legion Sunday night. It was excellent. I really love going to the movies with my husband. Truly is the highlight of my weekend. There are many many movies that I must see.

I have been a scrappin queen as of late. Made a few Valentines decorations for my house. I never decorate for Vday but have wanted to for a long time. Here is what I've got done so far.

I bought this little wooden heart thing at the dollar tree. I didnt know what I was gonna do with it and almost passed it by but thought no there has to be something I can make out of it. I didnt want to do the same old paint job so I decided instead to glimmer mist it. Easy and the look is pretty. I glittered the wings and made the flower out of cupcake liners. I need a million cupcake liners now. :)

This frame I also found at the dollar tree. It was a shadow box-ish type frame. I knew I wanted to do something with it for the badgirls blog and it had to be romantic. This is what I ended up with. I really like how it turned out and it looks very sweet on my fireplace.

Lastly is my banner. This is going to go above my fireplace on the mirror since it is smaller then what I usually make. I made it very shabby chic. For some reason when I think valentines stuff I think shabby/vintage. I like it and am now just wondering what else I can create lol! You can see close ups and details on my facebook.

I am currently working on a small Valentines day tin (like my others), the next Mojo prompt, and something fun and exciting! I will be able to share the news on friday. Until then here is a peek of whats coming.

Have to mention I am super jealous of all the girls at CHA. Wish I coulda made it out there. *sigh* Someday I guess. Someday. There is soo many cool new things coming out that I really really want. Guess I better keep my job eh? lol!

TTFN my bloggity friends!
