Little Heart Boxes

Hard to believe that we are well into the New Year and Valentines Day will be here in a couple of weeks! Really, where does the time go?????????????

Here is one of the Valentines projects I have been working on. These cute little boxes are filled with Hershey Kisses and Hugs. Perfect for gift giving!

The little boxes came from Beau-Coup a great site for wedding favors! With some paper from Joannes and some tools from Stampin' Up, this was a quick and easy little project. The Stampin' Up heart punch and heart embossing template are my favorite tools right now!

Hope you had a great week!

It is better to give than to receive

It has been sooo long since I posted last! I am sorry and I am guilty of taking ideas from and my crafty blog friends but giving nothing in return.
I have only been making time to load my pinterest boards with recipes and craft ideas and whatever else I can find. I must admit I believe I have become a pinterest addict.
Ignoring facebook and pretty much only spending time to check emails and pinterest.

Since my last post I married my wonderful husband John, celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year without sharing one thing!
It is not that there is nothing to share, I have just been selfish and taking but not giving back.
That being said I promise to start sharing again.
I will start by telling you that our wedding in Monterey/Pacific Grove was beautiful! We could not have asked for more beautiful weather! It was a simple ceremony at Lovers Point followed by a delicious lunch at Fandangos in Pacific Grove. Although it was a very small wedding it was beautiful!
I have since kept busy with family and friends, exercise, crafting, baking, cooking, shopping, and so on! Now I will find time to share with you some of the great recipes I am trying, as well as clever ideas and the crafts that I make.
I start today by sharing a clever idea I found at pinterest. The idea is another use for a kitchen item.
This 3 tiered dish was purchased at Kohl's and was intended for the kitchen, however I chose to use it on the vanity to hold my makeup and skin care products. It looks clean and sleek!

I will be back soon to share all the Valentine things I have been making!

I hope your 2012 is off to a good start!
