• {DIY} Valentine’s Day Heart Garland Tutorial

    Inspired by my confetti garland from last week, today I’m sharing a super easy DIY heart garland for Valentine’s Day.  And when I say it’s easy, I mean really really easy.  This one would be fun to do with your kiddos – just let them decorate the hearts before you string them.

    You can either use a heart-shaped hole punch and punch (or cut out) hearts from whatever color card stock you like.  Or, if you want to make it really easy, you can buy these from Paper Source and avoid the punching/cutting altogether.

    {Instructions}

    Insert your string or yarn through the eye of your needle.  Give yourself as much slack as length you want in your garland.  Then start “threading” your needle through each heart.  I alternated red and pink.  Once you have the length of garland and spacing of hearts that you want, you’re done!  I used about 40 hearts and about 6 feet of string to make mine.  You can use less, or spread them out over more string to make it less “full.”

    I’ll be using mine for Charlie’s Valentine’s Day party with his playgroup.  I’m also using this really cute DIY from Wiley Valentine for Charlie to give to his buddies.  It reminds me of decorating a shoe or tissue box and taking it to elementary school to collect all of the valentine’s from my classmates.  So fun, right?

    •  7 months old today, but momma won't be taking your 7 month photo today (probably not tomorrow either) because I'm so tired from your sleeping more like a 7 week old than a 7 month old. Did you not get the 3rd baby memo? If you don't give me more sleep soon I'm going to pull a Lindsay Lohan and check myself into a nice facility due to my "exhaustion" (except in my case it really will be exhaustion). Then who will you wake up all night, huh? So can you try and just wake me up once a night? Instead of 3? Deal? DEAL!!!? #seriouslysotired #quincyrhys  Mama said there'd be days like this... Just not 200 of them in a row  good thing the company's cute. Also, currently loving this playmat from @lollalandusa - it's big and soft and cleans easily. And now we can practice sitting without worrying about head bumps when he falls over  #quincyrhys #OLDfavefinds
       I can hardly believe Quincy was ever this tiny. And now he's 7 months tomorrow. Since we are out of the infant baby gear/clothing phase, I'm selling it all at a deep discount now at @ohlovelydaysale (including this playmat!) and more this weekend if you are local. See the flyer a few posts back and head to my sale feed. Tag your expecting friends or the mom's of new babes that are in So Cal! #OLDsamplesale  Got one little corner of the boys' soon-to-be-shared bedroom done today. Once the bunkbeds arrive I may totally rearrange things but for now I'm loving this @thelandofnod table for reading, doing puzzles, and there is a hidden bin underneath where I have a Lego topper hidden so we can make it a Lego table too. And store those puzzles with all of the little pieces that drive me insane  Can't wait to finish and share more of this room (and move Cal in so I can move Quincy into the nursery and maybe get a little more sleep!) You can see the design process and inspiration that I did with the design services team from The Land of Nod on the blog as well (link in profile). #projectsharedboysbedroom #calvins3rdyear
