Wordless Wednesdays …heart in the crack


Wire and bead Valentine decoration

I was given a few hundred 12 inch long wire and bead sprays that had been intended for bouquets and I have been figuring out crafts for them.
Here is my wire “lace” valentine made by twisting the wires together and looking them through each other in the middle.



Kitty Poe and the Tetris pieces

So I am making 50 tetris pieces for a dance on Saturday, they have to be done in 2 days and so far I havve cut out 100 pieces of neon paper and started making about 6 of them… each piece is 11×5.5 in and has to be folded, outlined and then taped together (in some cases cut in half to make the right shapes) and since the theme of the dance is 8-bit love I am putting paper hearts on them at random (had to cut those out too)

Now I am not sure how i am going to get these done in time and I can use all the help I can get BUT this is NOT what I had in mind..

I did 4 more simple ATC mini cards, these open out like real cards and are done on printed paper mounted on cardstock

My fiance HATES glitter, he is a custodian for the school system and is always having to clean it up, I on the other hand LOVE

So we have reached an agreement, I can play with glitter glue to my hearts content and use glitter in the kitchen on tile (the rest of the place except the bathroom is carpet)

So here is me playing with glitter glue and some paper weaving I did last year for a series of ATCs that i had extras of
