Valentine's "Fantel"

I have introduced my mother to the world of blogging...and now, she's hooked. I mean HOOKED. Like me. It's least that's what she says. Hehe. 

She has already decorated her little buffet that sits in their front room all Valentine-ish. And I love it. 

I haven't started Valentine's decorations yet. I'm so behind. UGH. 

Anyways, I took some pictures of hers (with my point and shoot - so, sorry for not great pics) while I was over there today. I think she did a great job...even though she doesn't think so. Love ya mom! 

So, today, just enjoy these pics! Hoping to be back tomorrow with a new project! So stay tuned!

Sorry so blurry... This is her adorable cupcake liner wreath. Way cuter in person. 

 Yes, those are sprinkles under the candles. CUTE!

Something I made for each set of our parents for Christmas. Got the idea from Stacie @ The Creative Crate. I used flat canvases. I love the smudges of black, and the look the distress ink gave it. I wish I would've made me one...hehe!  

 This garland was actually Christmas, but I think it looks great with all of this stuff. 

Her version of subway art that she did with STICKERS. I love it!

And, OF COURSE, pictures of my lil man, because he is the ONLY grandkid on both sides. =) He was 3  and 9 months in those pictures. So big now. Almost 2. =(

I hope y'all have gotten a little bit of inspiration today. Now, I need to get going on my Valentine stuff. I am currently painting the kitchen cabinets, and I'm working on some stuff for my best friend's birthday. Going going going. Hope y'all had a great day!
