Happy Friday everyone! I hope you had a wonderful week and are looking forward to the weekend! I am STILL taking down Christmas…and STILL struggling with how much “winter” decor to leave out. The snowmen did not make the cut this year. But I did leave some greenery out here and there and incorporated my Valentine goodies around those.
I had a fun crafty week! I made some Valentine salt dough bowl fillers and ornies and some cinnamon salt dough fillers and ornies. Our house smelled wonderful! Such a warm, cozy feeling when the oven is on and the cinnamon is wafting through it!
Here are some of the regular Salt Dough ::

So great getting back into the kitchen crafting again. I really did miss making any Christmas/Winter salt dough. The Valentines ones were fun! :)
I also made a large cinnamon salt dough heart ::
I did a little Valentine decorating here and there. I started with the shelf in our foyer.
In those last four photos the heart, the goose, the stamped LOVE bag, the candle and the dried beet garland were all made by Alison. Click HERE to visit her Etsy shop. I think she has sold out of a lot of Valentine things already but wow is she talented. I love her handmade prims!
Just a few more pictures to share….are you still with me!? Haha…
I changed out my mini Christmas tree on my table, took off the dried orange slices and added my cinnamon salt dough hearts.
We have had a busy week and I am grateful for the weekend. Time to catch up on some things around the house. Laundry…as always and I need some more time to fiddle with my redecorating. I am at a stand still right now, taking a break and will return tomorrow morning with a refreshed outlook!
We are supposed to get a little more snow, that always seems to make me more creative. I love that homey, comforting feeling I get when the snow is falling, the fireplace is on and the kids are playing in the house.
I hope you all enjoy your weekend. And stay safe in whatever weather you are having. I have connected with so many people in different cities, states and countries. And my prayers go out to all of them that may be experiencing flooding, or heavy snow etc.
I want to leave you with this quote I found the other day. Amanda Bradley is one of my favorites. I love her greeting cards. Always words to live by.
“It only takes one smile to offer welcome...and blessed be the person who will share it. It only takes one moment to be helpful...and blessed be the person who will spare it. It only takes one joy to lift a spirit...and blessed be the person who will give it. It only takes one life to make a difference...and blessed be the person who will live it.” ~Amanda Bradley
Until next time, take care.
