Crafty Monday: Heart Flowers

I was at the TEDxManitoba talks all day today. My mind is still reeling from all the ideas and inspiration the speakers had to offer. Maybe I'll be better able to form a coherent pile of sentences to describe my experience tomorrow.

In the meantime, I bet you're wondering what kind of crafty stuff we were up to yesterday for Crafty Monday.

Lane had an unfortunately timed pediatrician appointment. Who wants to get shots on Valentine's Day? Terry took her to the doc. Logan and I stayed home. This gave us some uninterrupted time to break out the paint. So we make cardboard heart flowers.

Logan put on his art smock and painted up some pretty cardboard hearts.

He's very precise with his painting and he hates getting any on himself. Look at all those very carefully painted masterpieces. After they dried, we stapled pipe cleaners onto the bottoms for stems and glued pom poms on the front for decoration.

Logan did a terrific job on our last minute Valentine's Day centrepiece don't you think?
