Sometimes I feel like I have used up all my pinks so I am glad Valentine’s Day is on the horizon. There’s pink there for sure and I pulled off a couple of pink projects,
Just a few days ago I came across this cool and hip Blog called: 1825, written by 3 sisters who grew up at a house with 1825 as the address, and still reside in Las Vegas. They create Subway Art and this is their latest feature.All you do is download the file and order online at Costco. They are 16 X 20 prints and cost about 6 dollars each.
I wanted to keep it cheap (that’s the whole idea) and found frames at Hobby Lobby for 9.95 and they were 50% off. Great deal! Frames can be so expensive, especially this size.
Not too shabby and quite substantial for about $11 each.I think they will make great gigantic Valentine’s Day Gifts for some Sweeties out there :D
I framed both color versions and am so pleased with how they turned out. I am picturing the framed Subway prints in homes all over Blogland!
My other project is the sweet and simple Ragamuffin Garland. This time I used Valentine ribbons with hearts and messages of love, red burlap strips, strips of fluffy white tulle and pink and red strips of whatever I had around.
I tied 4 to 6 inch strips onto a piece of twine as long as my arm. I watched TV and worked on this for about 3 hours. You have to stuff it really full so it doesn’t look scraggly. You would get crazy-bored sitting, ripping strips and tying for so long without watching TV. I watched TV guilt-free because I had a project going.
I know lots of folks have made their versions of these garlands and they’ve been around for awhile but I still just love the way they look, And, they are very inexpensive to make!
Thank you for dropping by today! I always enjoy your visit!
