Valentine Wall Hanging

Evening or I guess technically it's the weeee hours of the morning here. I came home from work today, fixed some dinner for the clan. Then boredom struck and I zonked out...well you guess it, I woke up and now I am wide awake! I bought this cute little LOVE wall hanging a few weeks back. I figured i would alter it somehow. Now, I suually have these wonderful ideas and never end up doing it. Then it just sits in my room and collects dust. I currently have a bin FULL of stuff that I have bought over the years to alter and never did. I want to get rid of it, but I just need to stop buying stuff like that to begin with unless I truly have an idea of what I am going to do and then do it!

So back to the wall hanging. I just knew if I waited any longer that is exactly what would happen to this. So I grabbed it out of my bin and started to play with it. Let me preface this by saying first, I really wasn't in the mood to craft tonight, but nothing else seemed very appealing to me either. Actually I was in the mood to go out and the hubby wasn't. I really wanted to go out to a club or something like that. Have a drink, dance a bit..go home. I would have been a happy camper. But instead I spent my Friday  night sleeping from 7-9 (bc I was bored!!) So I got home, hubs went to bed.

I am horrible at altering things...I try...I really do, but I am always afraid of adding to much, KWIM? It's cute, but I'm not thrilled!


And another thing, I bought a new "light studio" and I am not liking the backdrop. Going to go to JoAnns over the weekend and buy some different material to use. That gray is just fugly.

Real men wear pink, so yes, Edwin got a pink shirt!!!!!!!!! I colored Tilda and Edwin the Copic markers. If you are one of those ppl that make the picture larger, don't laugh at my Tilda. I colored her and then I guess I cleaned a stamp to close to her and I got little dots all over her...argh! I stamped that image off from a friend, so I couldn't just restamp and color it. So she has a few little dots on her. Oh well...life I am sure will go on!

I used Liquid pearls around the heart. The flourish is a magnolia Doohickey. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. The cute little sentiment is from the Dollar bin at either Michaels or JoAnns.

I feel like I am missing something...but I think thats it. 
Have a great weekend and see you on Sunday!! Paper Sundaes will be having an awesome BLOG HOP!

There is nothing worse than not being able to sleep Tracy, but at least we always have our craft rooms to retreat to. Your Wall hanging project is lovely and I just love Edwin's pink shirt. I have used liquid pearls on a few projects now and I just love them.
I hope you have a greatweekend
