After you subscribe to Melanie’s lovely blog, if you haven’t already, you are going to wonder how you went through life without it! Yep, I totally know this girl in real life—(I am hoping telling you that will up me on the coolness scale).
The only stipulations we have set for ourselves is that we both have to like the piece and that we can afford it. Actually most of our acquisitions have been very affordable since we often buy prints or artwork from local, upcoming artist.
We had a few special valentines to send this year so we decided to make some love garlands out of felt, ribbon and buttons. Considering we have a three year old little Hendrix and because it is insanely affordable, felt is the craft-drug of choice around here.
Garlands contained special love phrases such as, “Loving You,” “I Love You,” and “Hello Lovely.”
We actually made an extra one to hang in our own home. It’s sort of nice having a little love reminder every time I go through the entryway in which it hangs. In fact, I think I may just leave it up year round.
