You know I'm always looking for ways to tell you guys how much I love you. Tonight I have some fun projects and a giveaway to share from my latest adventure.
Thanks to Jade over at the Craving Anthropologie blog I found out about an event put on by ReadyMade magazine at my local Anthropologie store about the art of making personal love notes. Seemed right up my alley so I headed out before hitting my caucus to vote.Two fabulous ladies from ReadyMade magazine flew from Chicago to share with us some unique, crafty ideas for Valentine's Day. They demonstrated the three projects above.First was pillow with a little pocket in front to tuck in a note of endearment. The next was this adorable You Light My Fire embroidered shadow box. They start with a shadowbox and put screen on it just like you would stretch canvas. They then embroidered the saying and little fire picture. Too cute!The third project was this Love Mobile Hanging Valentine. The trick that I thought was ingenious was to poke holes in the rubber seal around the top and hang your mobile string from the rubber. There could be endless uses for this design. Fun stuff and I won this very one as a door prize!They also had a poster (see top of post) that had some other fun crafty Valentine's Day ideas.A stitched little booklet to write notes to your hunny.Remember shrinky dinks? This is a heart keychain made from a shrinky sheet.A note made with gorgeous Basic Grey paper.Very tongue-and-cheek...very ReadyMade. Love it!Since you know I'm always thinking of my blog readers, I have three goodie bags to give away from the event. Each bag contains a copy of ReadyMade magazine, four sheets of Basic Grey papers from the Boxer collection, a page of Basic Grey Valentine rub ons, postcards explainging how to do each of the projects, a shrinky sheet and an Aveda gift.
