My Funny Valentine

I am so sorry I just haven't had the time to devote to my blog and bloggy friends like I would like lately.
The good news little crafting business is picking up. The bad news is....I won't be able to do the Out and About linky party that I had planned this week, and I'm not sure when I will be able to.
How does the saying go? Life is what happens to you while you're making plans for something else?
I seem to be getting a lot of life in my life right now.

I made a funny little Valentine pin tonight out of burlap, felt, ribbon and a button. I've seen similar ideas on other blogs.
Not too bad for a 5 minute project.
I think it will look cute on my lapel or a
turtleneck on Feb 14th!

Of course, when or if you make one, you'll be sure that both loops of your ribbon bow will be right side out! intentions were good.
The execution, not so much!


  1. Cute! I have been wanting to make some burlap pins but haven't gotten around to it. I love yours with the hearts. So fun!

    And so exciting about your business picking up! That is so great!


  2. Cute pin, Dena! I know what you mean about life getting in the way of, well, life!

  3. Just remember to breath! The lapel pin is too cute! Good job ;)

  4. very cute mommy :) love you!

  5. Dena, the pin is adorable! Happy news about your crafting business!


  6. I'm glad your business is doing well...I'm not surprised. I actually bought my first burlap this week. I have no idea what I will do with it...I don't sew and I haven't been all that crafty the past few years...but, everyone else had some in Blogland and I didn't want to be left out!

  7. Well congratulations Ms. Dena on your feature over at Creative Home Expressions! I just saw it!
