WIP Wednesday

I thought I would introduce a new little segment here on my Luv & Stitches blog. WIP (Work In Progress) Wednesday! I always seem to start these fun projects, but hardly ever get to finish them in a timely manner, now that I have to little ones to look after...sigh. So I figure if I post here, I can get my butt in gear and get some of these things finished! So I'll try to post my tribulations on Wednesdays, can't promise every Wednesday though! ;)

We bought this Ikea childrens Latt table back in September, the raw wood was just screaming for something to be put on it. So a few months later and lots of food, paint, and markers stains as well, I thought it was time to do something about that! Details on what I did to come, so stay tuned! Waiting for the weather to get better so I can finish the other chair and table...in progress!

Be Mine

My 2.5 year old is in preschool this year, and we had to make Valentines for his classmates! I didn't want to do the whole candy thing, so this is what I came up with...

Valentine Pencils - From the Dollar Tree
Glitter Glue - Dollar Tree
Googly Eyes - Dollar Tree
Pom-Poms - Dollar Tree
Fun Foam - Micheal's Craft Store
Constriction paper
Hot Glue

I have a die cutter, so I cut out the fun foam with my heart shape die cut. I hot glued on the googly eyes and pom-pom noses, then added glitter glue for the smiles.
Once the faces were dry, I taped the pencil to the back of the hearts and taped another smaller heart, made out of construction paper with my little ones name on it!

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeesy, and pretty cute to boot, no?

New Monogram Hat

I have a new hat in the shop!

It's just a twist on our regular ear flap hat, but now with a cute little Monogram.

Ashley, of Ashley Nelson Photography was kind enough to photograph it for me, here is her cutie patootie son modeling the new hat...
