{ A Valentine's Rewind }

Here's a little bit of what we've been up to over the month of February, brace yourself for picture overload.

I love Pinterest... Sometimes too much. :) 
  I took 3 of my favorite Pinterest Valentine's Day finds and combined them into one Love Day banner.
All 3 of the above crafts can be found on my Pinterest Happy Heart Day Board. 
You can find my Pinterest over on the right hand side of my blog above ABOUT ME.
I went to the thrift store and bought a 50 cent book, as well as some 25 cent sewing patterns.

 Used the book for the pennants and hearts, stapled those together.
Used my Sizzix Big Shot to cut out the flowers from the sewing patterns & some red tissue paper. 
Used washi tape on the hearts, punched a hole.
 Strung it all on Bakers Twine. Done!
I made one for me, my mom and Addison's awesome Pre-School Teacher.

 Then I helped Brinley with her Valentine's Mail Box for School.

 Ipad printable was free and the link is on my Pinterest Happy Heart Day Board. 
We made 32 Sour Cream Containers filled with treats for her classmates & teachers. 
I also made 8 for Addison's pre-school class as well.
Instead of taking candy, Corbin took these awesome little treats.
I bought 5 dollars worth of glow sticks from Dollar Tree, and the 
Star War's printable were FREE 
(The link to the Star Wars Valentines can be found in my Happy Heart day File on Pinterest).

Then on Single Awareness Day aka Valentines Day,
 I made Cookies.

Phew, am I glad Valentines day is over....

Oh, did I mention that we made benches for our dining room table right before Valentines day? 
Can I just say FINALLY! I've been wanting benches for so long.
Pictures coming soon. I need to paint the hummers first. 
Here's a sneak peek at the picture we based our plans on:

Have a FABULOUS Leap Day!

{ Oregon Ducks Birthday }

It's me! Were you beginning to think I lost my blogger password? 
Me too! :)

My oldest (Jentry) turned 14 back in January and he LOVES the Oregon Ducks & wanted the DUCKS to be his birthday theme so we did the following.
I bought some Oregon Duck, Duct Tape and put it around my 3 tier server. Worked great and peeled off like a charm.

I happened upon some free Football printables the day before his birthday that were the perfect color combo. SCORE! 
I used that kit for the cupcake toppers as well as 1 sad cupcake wrapper (ran out of time) and the football guys on the table.
I had my boyfriend (aka husband) bring home some outdoor carpet from work and we stapled it to the bottom of our dining room table.
 I bought some first aid tape & used that for the yard lines.
If I had more time I would have cut out some numbers for the yard lines on my Cricut. Oh well, next time.
I also found some sports themed stuff from the $ tree and hung those up as well. 
Did I get a picture of any of it? 

Blurry picture, but you have to love the 14 candles ablaze on a tiny cupcake.

He had a great birthday with several of his friends. 
The boys all went and played laser tag, then we had pizza for dinner, opened gifts, then it was time for cake & ice cream. 
All the boys hunkered down outside in the camper for the night where they played PS3 till the wee hours in the morning. 
Then they all went to a combined Stake youth activity the next morning.
He's going to hate this picture but it's the only smile I got on film. 
He usually hides from the camera.

All in all, it's the birthday he wanted. 
Low key and with very few pictures taken. 

Have a fabulous Friday!
