I haven’t been posting about the crafty things we’ve been doing around the house lately because there simply wasn’t time to post about them with the whole organizing thing going on.  I say “we” because I usually manage to talk one of the boys into crafting with me.

Here’s our own little spin on the Valentine’s Subway Art that’s so popular right now:

Greg helped me stamp the extra bits and add the colorful tape.

Here we made some of those Apothecary Jar Candlesticks:

Apothecary Style Jar with springs of sparklies

This one has Valentine’s Bunting wrapped around it (we made that last year for a different candle holder, but it works better here)

Apothecary Style jar with Valentine Bunting that Ben helped me make last year

Here’s our Valentine’s Mobile (remade a bit from last years to work with the new light fixture):

Our "new" light fixture with a Valentine's Mobile from last year that the big kids helped make

Here’s the flower arrangement the big boy helped me make by mixing flowers we already had with some more of those fun sparkle sprigs (it’s beautiful to me because my eldest never wants to craft with me):

Flowers David helped me arrange & photograph

Speaking of flowers, Ben helped me make these little beauties (which hang above my computer):

We made these out of scraps of paper leftover from another project. His is the big red one, mine is the little lavender one


Last we have the Snowflake Valentine that Greg helped me cut out and then helped me stamp the background paper (silver, which is pretty in the house, but not so easy to photograph) for:

Greg learned about making snowflakes at the library and wanted to try making a snowflake heart! 🙂

Sorry about some of the bad photos today, guys.  We managed to leave our battery charger somewhere and I haven’t been able to charge the good camera (and since I’d just charged it during Christmas I didn’t notice the charger was gone until now).

Edited to add: I linked this up to A Glimpse Inside’s Catch a Glimpse Link Party and to Polly Want A Crafter?: Link Party 18.
