The chairs are completed!

Hello!!!!  I'm sorry for the lack of posting.  I had a suspicious spot on my back and face that needed to be biopsied.  I found that when I got near the computer I would want to "Google" and that got me freaked out a little!  Yikes!  Well got the results in and the biopsy on my back was benign and the biopsy on my face couldn't make it through the second round of testing because there were not enough cells left.  The doctor is going to recheck in a month and we will go from there.  So I have basically spring cleaned my house including the garage to keep me busy!  LOL!  My hubby is happy because now I will actually sit down and relax:)  Any who...on with the post!

These chairs were given to me by my mother in law.  I had traded her for my cushioned kitchen chairs and table.  The table to go with these has a white tile top and a pedestal.  The table is going to be refinished and I will do something with the tile top, just not sure yet.  These babies were perfect to go with my table from Goodwill that I refinished, HERE   and HERE but that meant more sanding, stripping and painting.  The finish from the factory on these chairs is tough, but I won that fight!  LOL!  They went from this:

To this:
I LOVE it!  The two chairs I already had and it all matches wonderfully.  It was definitely worth all the hard work.  Thanks so much for reading!

Valentine's Day goody bags

Happy Valentine's Day!! A day to celebrate love....awesome:) I have a 7 year old son and I asked him if he would like to give out little goody bags with things we made and he was like "sure". LOL! Gotta love the enthusiasm. I found a ton of great ideas all over the web and finally chose the following ones:

 The iLove I found at full of bliss , it is just so cute.  I was super simple to make also!  Full of bliss has a tutorial with links on her site.
 I Googled iPod heart and printed this heart and just used a glue stick to stick it on.
We made heart shaped crayons from broken and restaurant crayons we had and I printed out a heart shape so they could color it in.

I found these super cute bookmarks and had to include them.  I love the little owls!  You can find some at Living Locurto and also at My Grafico.  They were free to print and I just cut them out.
And of course the love monsters!

Here is the bag all stuffed and ready to head to school:)  I made the bag topper in MS Word and printed it on card stock.  The owl image was in there clip art.  Easy!

Thanks for stopping by:)  ~Angi

Love monsters

I wanted to make some cute little something for my son to give for Valentines day. I decided to make "love monsters".....LOL He had brought home a green pom-pom with eyes from the school treasure box at the start of the year and had named it and just loved it.

  So my creative wheels started turning. How would I do them for V-day? I quickly realized making pom-poms using yarn that is multi colored in red, pink and white and trimming them up (giving them a hair cut) add some googly eyes and using my heart punch and some foam for feet would make adorable little "love monsters". Thanks for checking them out:) ~Angi
