Thing-a-day 5: Valentines

Day five’s entry. I had planned to make this early and kept getting other ideas. I have some blank cards and used scraps for the rest. Not a good photo but hopefully you can see it.

Thing-a-day 3: Keep Me Clean Spring



 My 3rd installment in the Thing-a-day project. I made this for Bunny so we can get messy when she comes over. That is as long as grandpa doesn’t freak!

I took a napkin I received as a wedding gift. It included 4 napkins and 4 placemats which we haven’t used at all that much. I just folded back two of the corners and sewed them on a diagonal then attached some ribbon for the ties. It was super easy and a great way to use up things I have. Just another reason not to throw anything away…you never know when or how you might use it!

Thing a day 1: The 5 minute card

I’m participating in Thing-a-Day 2011 over at It is a “collective creative blog that lives for one month every February. Participants commit to create new things every day and share them with the rest of the group” (taken from their site. It took me forever but I figured out how to autopost my entries there to this post. Below is day 1.

This was a quick make, hence the name, using scraps I had. Not sure what I’ll use it for. Maybe a happy spring card if Spring ever gets here!
