Coming Soon! Bloody Valentine


Stay tuned for the upcoming 2015 Bloody Valentine Blog Hop.
So get ready!!
Cannot wait to see what these amazing artists have in store for this year.


Pinterest Challenge #1

Earlier this week I posted about a challenge I was presented with- choose a Pinterest DIY project and recreate. (I honestly think she was being funny when she challenged me, as I have had more FAIL Pinterest projects than I have had positive results. I am a terrible "copy-cat creator, LOL.)

Here is my inspiration photo. I am tackling an "old" project that has been done for at least the last decade.


Here is my version with a Valentine Day twist.
No judging, just enjoy. :)

I decided to not wrap the pens in green floral tape. I like the red and black pens with the flower tops.

So, go, choose a Pinterest project of your own and share. Don't be a scary cat.

Come back next month for Pinterest Challenge #2!
