Craftiness at it's finest

I love making new friends. I really really do. This is Carly. She's my new pal. I think she's fab. Anywho, I'm way late to the party, but we participated in an awesome Valentine's Day craft swap.

Obviously from the name of the swap you can tell it was for Valentine's Day. Which was February. It's March. I'm wayyyyyy behind. I blame the deployment and my sadness and the craptastic weather. Yup, that's it. I'm not lazy. :)

Back to the point of this post. If you're still reading, thank you. I go off topic a lot. My bad.

I joined this swap because I'm new to the crafty world. I don't have an Etsy shop or anything, but I do sometimes see items and think, "you know what Megan, you can make that!" Sometimes I am triumphiant. Sometimes I fail miserably. But, at least I tried right?

Carly was the brave soul that was my partner. I gave her a heart garland (here is a tutorial), since she loves hearts. And she gave me this!

Please disregard the uneven paint job, m'kay?! Thanks.

How unbelievably cute is this?! Carly is the best. This makes me so happy and I have it hanging in my kitchen for all to see!

And this is the card. It makes me insanely happy as well. I love it dearly.

I can't remember if I gave her a card. :/ It's been a long month.

She has inspired me to try to be more crafty. Fingers crossed folks. Fingers crossed.


  1. oh yay! i'm glad you like it!! i too have your garland hanging up...all year round as i love it so much and hearts are always relevant to my life :)

    hope you're feeling less sad and very happy!! xo.

  2. I love it! What a good pick-me-up, too :)
