We had a guest crafter with us this week- my mom. Grandma in Florida thought she would try her hand in making a valentine of her own. Hopefully she will join us a few more times. She is a very crafty person and should be doing this with us each week- HINT HINT!
Thing 1 was back in action this week and the first to complete his Valentine. A while back he was turned on to Cubeecraft by Kathy. When he would spend time at her house he would make these creations.
Another site we download templates from is Nintendo Paper Crafts. This is where he downloaded his Valentine- We call it " Key to My Heart" He won't tell who he is giving it to.
Thing 2 this week set out to make Valentine's for his grandparents. It was great that this project was early as we need to send our Valentine's to Florida and Wisconsin. Thing 2 choose a wooden frame, some paint, and a small heart for his beginnings. I think his Valentine's are great and know his grandparents will love them. Our hope is the next time we see our grandparents we can take a photo of Lucas with them and put it in the frame.
For my valentine, I choose to try my hand at knitting some hearts. Since my valentine will still be over in Saudi Arabia on Valentine's Day I needed to make something that would last until he comes home sometime in March. This project was perfect for me as a new knitter. The hearts were a little fussy as my knitting is not the best. I did have fun doing it and Thing 2 wants me to make more hearts.
