Potato, Patato

Valentines potato stamps sweet nothings design shari fors A little handmade love note on Valentine’s day! I broke out the potato stampin’ skills from grade school and made these valentines to send out for the upcoming heart day! I like the way the paint feels on the cards and how it looks distressed. However part of me wishes I had crisper lines but I think it was the paint I used. Something to consider the next time I potato stamp! I used paper doilies from the dollar store (Holla @ the dolla store!) for the envelopes. A sweet little touch that makes this card a little more adorable! Smooches and Happy Valentines day!

Happy New Ideas!

Project 52 sweet nothings design DIY craftsSo I’m back betches! And mama has some big plans for the new year! Of course I have all of the same resolutions as everyone else…lose weight, get healthy, wake up earlier, be kinder, volunteer, clean more, get out of debt and save money. However, I’ve decided not to declare any of those things. Instead I’ve decided to focus my energy on something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile. This year my goal is to complete 1 project per week. Hence the brilliant title Project 52! Ok it’s not brilliant but whatevs. What makes me declare such an ambitious thing? I’m so glad you asked! I have so many ideas that I don’t take the time to actually sit down and complete. Then the ideas are just left swimming around in my head, being sad and uncreated. They want to be created and I’m just the girl to do it. Also I’m tired of saying to myself I can make that! So this year I’m putting my money where my mouth is and doing it!

PS. Do you think I can count this post as project #1? HA! Fine, project #1 coming soon!

NO CANDY ON VALENTINES DAY??????

A request was sent out by our schools to find an alternative for candy for valentines day. Whaaaa whaaaa. Well that doesn’t stop us from doing something so sweet that it’ll give those kids cavities anyway! We made these cute heart shaped crayons! I got the idea from my good friend Martha. She’s brilliant with the exception of her unfortunate incarceration. She’s not perfect but her crafts are!!!! Anyway. We got to peeling and peeling was not an easy task. As you can see by our little sweat shop we’ve got going on here. We had races to see who could peel the most. I won. What can I say? I’ve got good nails. They took a little longer than I hoped but in the end they turned out great. I’m  a little jealous of those lucky duckies that get these in their box at school. I want a melty heart shaped crayon this valentines day. Pink please!

PS. Helpful tips for this project…

1. Place the molds on a cookie sheet for easy removal from the oven.

2. Slice the wrappers down the crayon for easier peeling. Sorry family, we learned this a little too late.

3. The “molds” molds are actually rubber muffin pans. I got mine at Target $2.50. I suggest purchasing more than 1 mold.

4. Cool in the freezer for about 10 – 15 minutes.
