SHOW A LITTLE LOVE


...I saw an angel in the marble and carved until I set him free...
- Michelangelo -


...hello everyone, just a quick posting, thought I'd share some wooden hearts I'd altered...




...I bought these chunky wooden hearts for one of my little Christmas trees and was going to pack them away with the decorations, but thought I'd keep a few back for an idea I had... 



....instead of writing thank you cards I thought it would be nice to make thank you gifts for the girls in our crafting group (we meet once a month and share our makes and ideas) they had made some wonderful Christmas presents for me...



...just choose some left over papers from your stash, glue down, when thoroughly dried sand the outer edge with fine grade paper, add some definition and a sentiment and transformation is complete...shabby chic lovelies...




...why not show a little love this Valentine's and give friends and family something from your heart to theirs...

...thank you for dropping by today...
