Heart to Heart

So where does time go?  
It seems like there are so many projects I want to do (some not so fun, just projects around the house)
but I can never find the time.  Do you ever feel like that? 
I did manage to make a few fabric Valentines though, that I thoroughly enjoyed. 
I remember being a kid, and was so excited to fill out all of my Valentine cards to give to my friends at school the next day.  Maybe it was that same childhood excitement that filled my heart when I was making these.







I think I will still enjoy making hearts even after Valentine's Day.  Hearts and birds are some of my favorite things. 
I also wanted to include this photo of a clay heart I made for a friend a couple of years ago.
I might have to get out my clay and try that again, it was also fun to work with, and I think 
Fetzer approves too! 


Thank you for leaving such sweet messages on my last post. 
It makes me so happy to read each and every one! 
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead, 

Becca

sigh...
so many ideas...
so many projects...
so little time...

This 'working for a living' gets in the way of our spare time I think. These 2 day weekends just aren't enough to get all we want to do done! :)

But I love all your little hearts ~ so cute Becca!

I bet you smile the entire time you're making hearts :-) That beige & blue is so dear... a necklace? a keepsake? an embellishment for (insert wonderful ideas here)?

Your hearts are gorgeous Becca. I made some and was so proud of them, but they are plain and simple ones; nothing like yours.

God bless,
