Valentine's Celebration

I feel like the worst valentine ever. Because school has been so demanding, I wasnt able to be the valentine I wanted to be for Max. *insert sad face here* I had a big presentation to give on Valentine's Day so the days leading up to it were spent in preparation and not on the special day that it really was. I knew that Max had gotten me a little something but he wasnt saying what. And to be honest, I had forgotten all about it due to my presentation. So first thing Valentine's morning, Max was all ready to get out his gift (dont worry, its rated 'G'). To my surprise, this is what he gave me:

He was shopping at Gordmans one day and ran across this wooden Celebrate sign and knew that I would love it. Im not sure if I was more surprised that he got me a Valentine's gift or that he was paying attention and remembered that celebrate was my word for the year. Either way, kudos to Max!

I hope that each of you were able to spend some special time with your loved ones for Valentine's day.

Lavendar Frame Set

*tap tap* Is this thing on? I've been away from my blog for so long I think there are cobwebs on here.

It has been a long while since Ive stepped foot in my craft room but I do have some older things to share. Because the new mommy-to-be has received her gift, I can finally post it for all of you to see. I created a large frame showcasing the baby's name and its meanings and adorned it with lace, ribbon, and a purple hydrangea. It was accompanied by this adorable baby spoon and fork set that my talented sister-in-law Cara made. And of course, the set was topped off with a handmade card inspired by a vintage baby picture. I'm really into lavender colors right now, probably because Im anxiously awaiting spring, so this set was really fun to put together.
