new valentines signs and tags

My friend and I had a crafting day. I painted the wood and she brought the vinyl letters. We sanded them here and wrapped the wire around the stack. We both needed more Valentine decorations and came up with this. It was so much fun talking with someone and at the end of the day having accomplished something too.

We coffee dyed some tags as well and stamped on them - sweet, but dirty looking Valentines. I later printed some images on velum and sewed them on the tags. I like how they turned out.

I have been working on these primitive Valentine Signs for about a week. It's a long process sometimes. They are reverseable since I couldn't decide which phrases to stencil. I wanted to add just a little something extra so I sewed a few hearts out of felt and red fabric and have them hanging from the wire. They needed a little something and not another piece of homespun!

Finally, these are a quick attempt at some barrettes I made for Mallory after seeing them here - angrychicken. I really want to make some red ones and add polka dots and get some cute buttons to add too. I will get to those when I get back from my sweet but short vacation to Cali.
