My Heart, My Love

 Heart Hand Mantel 2

I think Cupid has FINALLY visited this crafty mommy! 


My mom always made Valentine’s Day a very special holiday when I was growing up.  It was almost as exciting as my birthday!  I was perusing the aisles of Michaels this weekend, ALONE, (I know, right? I NEVER get to do that) when a package of  little wooden hearts landed into my cart (literally, fell from the shelf and landed in my cart).  I started to put them back, but then visions of my little stink bug’s hand popped into my head.

I have a thing with my kids’ handprints and footprints.  Can’t help it… I have them in all forms of media randomly strewn throughout my house.  It genuinely amazes me at how quickly these tiny little body parts grow.  I haven’t captured Finley’s hand mug in a while and pounced on this opportunity.  He was such a sweet little boy and surprised me with his cooperation.


UNTIL I was stenciling and painting… he decided to unroll a 100 yd roll of tulle throughout my dining room and kitchen.  I knew the sheer pleasure in those giggles could only be that of mischief!

I had to laugh after I fussed at him.  Any who, when he’s a grumpy hormonal teenager, and I want to lock him in his room until he’s 25, I can look back and remember when he held my love in the palm of his hand…

So sweet!! I am dying to do something like this with Claire, but I think she might lack any kind of cooperation. Maybe I can get a foot while she's sleeping!

Wonderful creation! This is something you will always cherish I'm sure! Your little man is at such a fun age. The giggling is the best! ~Val

Following you...thank you for following my blog!!! This is so cute! I would love to just get a hand print of my 2 year old...if I could ever catch her!

Really cute! Going to the store to find little wooden hearts to do both my boys' handprints. Love it!

Super stinkin' cute!!! I am always looking for a fun new way to do hand prints and footprints for my 2 kiddos!! I encourage the daycare where they go to PLEASE DO ART with their hands/feet!! There is a place online (can check if you are interested) where you can scan your children's art and make it into a book!! I guess everything can be made into a book! I'm adding you to my 'Blogs of Those I wish I knew" list and following you! Hope we can be buds!

I forgot to also tell you that I have spent countless hours trying to decide a name for a girl if we ever have another or if we have another girl..... and Liberty is seriously the top of the list!! I LOVE IT! So powerful, so chic and sweet!!

So Cute! Would love for you to add to my Thursday Treasure Party:

What a fabulous idea! These are so so so cute! Thanks for sharing...and what a funny guy with that tulle!!! uhoh!!

Awww! So very fabulous! Visiting from Paper Issues!

I love it! I too have a thing for handprints/footprints. I have tried making my little man a shirt each holiday with his handprint and fabric paint. Then I let him wear the shirt for pjs. When he outgrows it I add it to his tshirt quilt pile. (example turkey for thanksgiving, reindeer for chritmas, giraffe just because lol) Fun. I'm thinking we need a heart =)

too cute!! LOVE it! so glad you visited, new follower!! xoxo
