Upgrade Your Dollar Store Valentines!

Hello!  Today I want to share a quick and FUN project with you! 
UPGRADED dollar store Valentines!

My daughter and I have been playing around with valentines this year to send to grandmas and cousins and friends.  We took some valentines we purchased at the dollar store this year (plus some from past years!) and... well...  did this with them!



I definitely consider it an improvement!!
Here are a few more!

And, my personal favorite!

Ha ha ha!!  Enjoy!  And if you make your own, share them with the hashtag #upgradedvalentine !

National Chocolate Day!

How did I not know about this holiday until this morning?? 

I discovered this post from Events to Celebrate, talking about the chocolate day and brownies and frosting and....  well, this happened:

Of course I had to get my dollies involved.  :o)

She is one of my tiniest girls...  a little over 4" (11 cm) tall.  I found the teeny tiny KitchenAid mixer at an online shop...  isn't it darling?  It's just like my human-sized one!

Here's another girl enjoying the finished product: 

She is 11" (28 cm) tall.  She's one of my favorite girls, and I am doing a 365 project with her this year...  a new photo of her every single day!
Anyway, that is all!  I am still sewing, still creating, and busy busy busy with life!

Now I am off to eat some protein to try to counteract my sugar shakes and head off the sugar coma...  Totally worth it, though!  :oD

Crocheted Gingerbread House Ornaments

Ooooh!!  A dear bloggy friend, Ursula, has recently started a new site, and she has posted a free pattern to crochet these ADORABLE little gingerbread house tags/ornaments!  I haven't crocheted anything in a couple of decades, but these just might push me to give it a try!  Look at the little icing icicles!  :oD

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and wrapping up the year with good memories and strengthened family and friendship ties.

♥ All the best to you and yours this season, and the coming year!! ♥

Here's a random dolly picture:
