F is for Friends:
I made a new friend participating in Viv's valentine swap, I was paired with Jenny at Jenny' Heart.
I don't decorate for Valentines and Jenny was a good sport about trying to do a non valentine, valentine swap, so I wanted to go the extra mile and make her items that I hoped she would really like. I looked through her blog and the perfect idea exposed it's self. One of her favorite this about February is the snow, it also has a personal meaning for her.
I started with a vintage book pages paper snowflake garland, a handmade heart snowman ornament using felt and fabric, a tiny snow baby winter snow globe made using a plastic wine flute and Epsom salt snow, crafty bits and pieces, valentine paper, ribbon and stickers and of course chocolate!
My box from Jenny couldn't of been more me. Of course the chocolate was eaten right away and the box is waiting to be turned into a tiny diorama, the beeswax bear is perfect with my old pooh bear books, the sugar skulls sticker and the love eternal heart will go perfectly with my DoD display and the doily is going to be framed and hung on the wall.
F is for "Family":
Mr. L had a business trip to Colorado that was in the same town where some dear friends that we haven't seen in a few years lived. Yes!! off to Colorado we went. The short version - it was 2 days of great weather where we played tourists and 1 1/2 days of snow where we stayed inside, played a card game called frustration and laughed.
F is for firefighter:
At school we are doing this phonetic program where each week we work on a different letter. Last week it was the letter F. Our little firecracker who is missing a couple of her top teeth was trying to make the F sound, she looks at the teacher and says " Me no do it, me have no teef". I love talking to her, she cracks me up!
The kids glued together firefighters which turned out so cute. I noticed when the firefighters were all lined up drying they looked like they were dancing. It reminded me of an all male review, which I know is so wrong... but a little funny.
