It's HARTS time and here are my Offerin's for Feb.


Howday-----and here is one of my Humble Arts February Offerins'---the Love Bunny is made from Cashmere wool and Angora that I felted and stitched and stuffed and and and---she was alot of fun to mess with---not quite sure I am into making bunnies---but this particular one captured my heart for some reason---she has glass eyes and EVERYTHING----I once knew a guy with a glass eye---different story---anywhoooo---then I made a heart door hanger and a heart make-do----Valentines day is right around the corner---I need to find a shoe box and get my tin foil in order to make my Valentines Greeting mailbox----'member when we did those in grade school???---it was the coolest thing EVER!!!---when Mom would let us use TIN FOIL for something other than wrapping a Rump Roast in----and that my dear friends only happened once a year----this coming from a mother who made us save the wrapping paper at Christmas---who does that kind of thing to their kids----My MOM---love her like I do---but I am a firm believer that is why I horde tin foil today---well that's what they tell me at my tin foil anonymous group anyways!---oh there are so many things---so many many things----

She's VERY cute Renee! I don't remember the tin foil boxes must be cause I'm so much older than you are, lol. Love how you write your blogs so funny! We all think of you all often too. Miss you. I sure hope I get to leave for the winter months some day every year from Jan.-March or April. I wouldn't miss it at all winter that is. Hugs and love.

We made the valentine boxes, but used brown kraft paper and glue on ours (no tnfoil in my days)...I still save the bags and tissue paper of anything I get....Never saved the wrapping paper, it was always destroyed in the unwrapping...It just kills me to see my grandchildren throw away the bags at Christmas time and then complain at how hard up they are....They just never learned to be frugal...you hit it out of the ball park once again Renee...such talent you do have...
Hugs

I LOVE her!! Renee, she is one of my favorite pieces you have ever done... wow! I remember in elementary school, we would decorate a shoe box with whatever we wanted or had at home. I save tissue paper and recycle as much as I can. We rip up the wrapping paper, but we save our bags and the girls always reuse what we have for their friends and don't mind it a bit. I remember using tin foil to cut hearts out of for my special Valentine box. Thanks for the sweet memory :) xox
