Remember the Valentine gnomes I mentioned a couple posts ago? Here they are! Meet Tom and Cally, our latest additions to our Fairy Village. (Tom belongs to Miss A, and Cally to Miss C.)
The creation of this cute little couple was a family affair: my sister Holly drew them on the wood, my Dad cut them out, and I wood-burned and painted them (she was going to burn and paint them herself but we ran out of time before she had to fly back home to Utah). I think Holly could totally sell these, don't you?
I was afraid the wood burner would have issues preserving the delicate facial features but luckily there was a tip fine enough to do the trick.
And if you're asking yourself what gift Miss J received, let me introduce Mr. Skunk to you.
Ain't he a cutie? I purchased him a few months ago while Amber Dusick's etsy shop was still open (I had to own another Amber original!) For those of you who don't know who Amber is, you should get to know her. She recently started the parenting blog, Crappy Pictures, that has taken off like no other blog I've ever seen! Saying she's downright hilarious would be an understatement. I'm thrilled for her and her success!
But we have to keep an eye on Mr. Skunk... he's constantly getting into mischief. Or as Miss A likes to call him, a "mischiefer". hee hee
Yes, our Love Day was filled with fun.
I was even able to find some time to make our sweet little Kelsi a felted Valentine cookie. (Thank you for all your kind words and prayers on her behalf! The stem cell transplant was a success, and she continues to feel a teeny bit better, but come March 28 and she has to go through it all over again--chemo and another stem cell transplant in hopes to kill off any remaining cancer cells. Yes, this little girl can use all the prayers you can offer.)
I'm sure you've seen the following style of headband plastered all over the internet this past year. I've been admiring them for quite some time now (they're just too cute!) and had to join the copy-cat wagon to make one for her cute little bald head.
I'll try to get a picture of her with it on to show you... it was part of her birthday outfit when she turned 2 two weeks ago! Such a little sweetie.
If you want to make one, too, just follow the directions in this tutorial but make three and glue them together. This little craft will surely bring a smile to your face!
I hope you're all well!
