Valentine’s Day Cards and Other!

Valentine’s Day Cards and Other!

Well, Valentines came just as fast as it does every year and every year I find myself unprepared.  You would think I’d learn my lesson and start making things right after Christmas!  But alas…what are holidays without a little procrastination and stress?  And because I can’t show you JUST one, I feel the need to show you ALL of the cards I made for Valentine’s Day.  Except one, anyway.  This year, I actually managed to make a special card for my special fella.  I’ll wait until Friday or this weekend to post that one, if in the very off chance that he checks my blog!  🙂

First of all, I’ll show you  my desk at work!  There’s a little bit of old and a little bit of new!  And a little bit of crackers in the background!  🙂

And here are some close-ups of the new cards.  I know, I know!  They are all very heart-y and pink and red but it’s what I had on hand.  I had a whole lot of fun with the herringbone technique this year and I have a whole bunch of those types of cards to show you in the coming weeks.

And to end off this already picture-intensive post, I also feel the need to show you a new knitted cute stuffed thing that I just finished at about 12:30 last night so that a friend would have it to give to her little girl for Friday!  I present to you the ever glamorous, 80s, punk-rock unicorn!  Gotta love that hair!

And a blue luchador to keep her company!

Anywoo, I’d best be puttering along!  I have a whole kitchen table worth of crafting mess to clean up!  You can check out my Facebook for a peak of the disaster that can only come with last minute crafting!

Happy February everyone!  Well, all the snow and cold weather has put me into a bit of a funk lately!  That’s not to say I haven’t been crafting though!  When I’m forced to go outside for, say, work, all I can think of is being back at home knitting away or making a card!

I have a couple of things to share with you today.  The first is the new collection of explosion boxes I made for Freedom Clothing Collective last week!!  Aren’t they just the cutest?  I tried to make some that could be a little Valentine’s Day-y if people wanted them to be.  Some pink, some hearts, but not overkill!

Explosion Boxes

So happy that this picture was posted on Facebook by Freedom because I didn’t get around to taking any pictures of these boxes before I delivered them!  I was so excited to get the boxes out to them that I completely forgot!

The second thing I’d like to show you are the most adorable Valentine’s Day treats!  Little boy and girl monsters!!  And just wait until next time when I show you the backs of them!  Literally, the backside of the monsters!  SUPER CUTE!

Finally, last time I referenced working on a super secret project…  Well, I can tell you that I’m involved in another cross-stitch book!  Not only did I stitch a piece that will be photographed for the book but this time, I actually designed a pattern for it as well!  I just can’t wait for it to come out!  We’re still a few months out on that but I’ll share it just as soon as I can!!  🙂

Keep warm!
