Before I show you my prjoects, I just want to say thank you to you all for visiting my blog! It i with a very very sad heart that I say, this will b my last post as a Senior Design Team member for Marks Finest Papers! With 3 kids, volunteering and keeping up with a house and husband who works shiftwork,it is extremely hard for me to keep up woith the required 10 projects a month. MFP has been absolutely AMAZING to me and I am sooo sad to be leavng :(

So, if you know of anyone looking for a DT member and only require 3-4 projects a month...I'm your girl! Also, please stop by from time to time, I will still be posting lotsof cool stuff! At least I hope you think it's cool!

And here are my projects!

Project one: a super cute heart garland that I have hung ver my mantel...I let my four year old pick the colors and pattern...I think she did a great job! Supplies: heart punch, varried colors of cardstock, stazon ink, sweing maching

Project 2: These pocket hand warmers have been all the rage lately and I had to try my hand at tem...I made a whole bunch, some machine stitched and some hand stitched...the hand stitched ones look so much cuter than the machine stitched!!! BTW, I think I need a new Stazon Jet black ink pad...mine is cracked and keeps drying out! GRRRRR

Aren't they sooo stinkin cute? I hand staitched these almost all the way closed and then added some rice to the inside, I used jasmine rice because I like the way it smells when it's heatedin the microwave! Yo canalso add come lavander or other yummy smelling grasses! Simple put these in the microwave for about 45 second to a minute and then place them in the coat pockets of your little ones...or your own!

These little darling hand warmers make fantastic little Valentines Day gifts for your kids and your kids teachers...and with the felt being a quarter a sheet...pretty inexpensive too!
