Hearts & Cherries

It's time to think about Hearts and Valentine's Day.  I'm really loving this new aqua blue and red color combination that I recently used for this cute heart necklace.

So how cute is this lampwork glass bead with a Cherry Heart on it??  I've made it up into a one of a kind bracelet with the perfect Heart toggle clasp.

How about a little Cottage Rose Heart shaped Purse charm or zipper pull.  It would look cute on a backpack, too.

Here's a pair of American Artisan handcrafted Cottage Rose embellished black hearts that I've used to create these fabulous Valentine's Day earrings. 

 I've added a number of new earrings designs that would make cute little Valentine's Day gifts, too.

Shopping & Creating

I'm not much of an after the Holidays bargain shopper but when Lucy mentioned on Facebook last week that Mary Engelbreit had some cute stuff available at Michaels Crafts for Valentine's Day that was all the inspiration I needed to get out and go see. 

What do these remind you of??  I found these little Cherries (at least to me they are) in the Christmas stuff mark down from $1.29 a bunch to a quarter each.

Cute little ME Valentine take out containers are available for .99.  The pink decorated clothes pins were marked down to .60 for the package.

Lots of cute stuff in the $1.50 bins like the Mary Engelbreit stamps in the first photo, several designs of cross stitch kits, and the mini scrapbook paper packages.

I picked up a couple of the little wooden bird houses for $1.50 and was inspired by the ME paper.

First I painted all the edges with some white acrylic paint.

Then it was cut...cut...cut...and glue...glue...glue.  Did you see the little window boxes on the sides of bird house?
Once all the glue dried I put a couple of coats of Mod Podge over all of the paper.  I still need to add a cute ribbon to hang the bird house with.  I forgot in my rush to get photos for my blog post.
I'm happy with how it turned out.  Next I'll work on making something with the mini Mary E. cross stitch kit.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm linking up with Sue at It's A Very Cherry World.  Stop over and visit to see all the red that everyone has shared for "Rednesday" at Sue's blog.
