I’m getting far more use out of the gigantic heart stamp than I previously had imagined! Today I whipped up a simple & festive heart banner to hang in our kitchen. It took me about 15 minutes to whip the two banners up. I just:
- ripped 22 6×7 inch rectangles out of old bedsheets
- ironed each square
- stamped each square with my gigantic heart stamp
- sewed the rectangles onto ribbon
- fixed the banners to the wall
The photos aren’t that pretty, but you get the idea. The lighting was just horrible in our kitchen today because of a crazy snow storm that just blew in from nowhere.
I was really surprised to see how nicely the heart impression turned out on the fabric, I’m thinking of doing a heart stamp on a shirt. Maybe Penelope & I can be twinners with heart-stamped shirts for V-day.
I’m thinking of being a little more festive with Valentine’s this year. My mom used to decorate the house to the nines, make a special breakfast & give us Valentine’s gifts for V-day. I might copy her with some heart-shaped pancakes. That is, if I’m not in the hospital giving birth. What are your Valentine’s day traditions? Do you have any good, low-stress ideas for celebrating the blessed/dreaded holiday?
