Hearts Aren't Just for Valentine's Day

My girls are getting a little older now (my oldest is eight) and while I really miss having babies around, I am having so much FUN with my kids! Every holiday is a million times more exciting. We are in full Valentines mode this week (only handmade cards in this house!) and I love seeing their little creative sides come out. They made me this bouquet from flowers and plants they clipped in our yard a few days ago and I was so proud of the arrangement! :) These little ladies make my heart burst.

Kristen from KFD Designs emailed me this Valentines-worthy project earlier this week and I thought it was so cute. Reminded me of this heart print we all love.

Kristen's more detailed tutorial is here, but the gist is she picked up a pair of really inexpensive thrift store frames, painted them gold and created the peach and neon pink hearts from scratch for the inside.

I love these two colors together and hanging the pink heart upside down was a genius touch and helps keep things in the not-too-sweet zone.

Well, done Kristen! Thanks for sharing.

If you have a project you'd like to share on LGN, email me a link or photos.

This is, apparently, the color combo of destiny this week.

Those frames and the floral pictures inside were a gift my parents received for their wedding almost 35yrs ago! They hang to this day in their guest bathroom. I've been dying to spray paint them for years. Cute project!
