7 Things About Me:

1. I LOVE Chocolate! My favorite is dark Chocolate or Hazelnut. I actually met someone who does not fancy this God given treasure and almost about died from unbelief! Chocolate to me is like air to my lungs. I have to have it. But that's just me:)

2. I get hiccups that sound like you stepped on a dogs squeaky chew toy. Or maybe they sound like you just stepped on a mouse....anyway, they sometimes last an hour...... it's horrendous and Im famous in my family for them.
3. I love to bake. I entertain the idea of some day going to a famous baking school and making fancy schmancy deserts.... but until then Ill just settle for the comfort of my own kitchen.
4. I am a clean freak! I know, this will be the death of me... but Im obsessed with a squeaky clean house that most likely drives my husband and boys insane....but o well. Im desperately trying to not obsess so much....
5. My joys are my boys! It's true! I don't think a day goes by that I don't laugh because of something one of my boys did or say. Im blessed every day to be their mom and wifey. I love my hubby and crazy boys. They light up my life!
6. I love to sew and make blankets! I don't know why? I just do. Maybe it's because they are so easy to sew and put together. Maybe it's because I LOVE to snuggle up in them afterwards? Maybe it's just because I know I can sew a straight line.... but whatever the deal, I love to sew blankets. They are just cute!
7. I love to Wakeboard! Is that weird? If so I DON'T CARE! This momma LOVES to hit the water every summer with her family! It's seriously so much fun! I love to do it cause it makes me remember who I am when I've lost myself in Mommy mode. Not that being a Mommy is bad! I love it! But we all have those moments where we need to rejuvenate ourselves in order to be the best we can right? So I think we have to remind ourselves to not take things so seriously, smile and remember there's a crazy fun loving chick inside us all. HA! Let her out! ;)

Blogs I recently Found:

There you have it ladies! Love you all! Oh and I have a cute little surprise coming in a few! Im working on a blanket!! So get excited! I know I am..... Tune back soon to learn how to do it! Muah!

I Heart Paper Valentines

Yes you heard it! I heart paper Valentines! I made this one last year. I don't know why but I love to sew paper for Valentines. I guess it's the love I have for texture or how cute and creative you can get with them. I don't know. But they are fun! This one was kind of an accident by happenstance but Im happy with it just the same. :) I hope you enjoy and have fun making yours. Let me know how yours turns out! Id LOVE to see them. :) Also this project was featured on AllFreeHolidayCrafts so check them out! They have lots of cute crafty ideas! Happy Love Day!

Material of choice

Step 1: Making Ruffles
Im in love with ruffles lately.
Take your needle, thread it. Knot the end so fabric will stay in place. Insert needle like so (see picture)

Once you get to the end of your string, tie a knot in the end so you don't loose your ruffles. :)

Step 2: Cut Out Paper and Sew
Cut out a heart shaped piece of paper. It can be whatever color or pattern you'd like. Then rethread and knot needle if necessary. Start sewing your ruffles onto your paper with a straight stitch.

Step 3: Love Note

Write a love note!
Have fun and Happy Love Day everyone! Loves!
