Valentine Hearts

Yesterday was Valentine's Day.

I made these cards for my family.

The idea came from Pinterest.

Pot o' Love

This pretty bowl was giving to me by Jodie for my birthday. It has a nice story.

Students in art classes sometimes abandon their projects before they're completed. Rather than trashing them, professional artists adopt them, finish them, mark them, and then sell them at the "Lonesome Pottery Sale."

The proceeds go toward purchasing new art materials for the school.

And lucky people, like me, get to have beautiful art to display at home. I love the subtle colors and, of course, the heart shape.

Personalized Mug

When Jodie was visiting at Thanksgiving, we took some time to do this craft.

Take a plain ceramic mug.

Create a design on it using permanent markers.

Bake for 30 minutes in a pre-heated 350 degree oven.

Jodie made a special set for a Secret Santa project.

We found the idea on Pinterest, who got it from the Home Made Simple website.
