Friday Favorites–Valentine’s Day, Part 2

I’m going to start this out by letting you know I’m typing with one hand.  No, I’m not trying out a new circus act, I’m nursing a shoulder issue.  My right arm is in a sling and I’m right-handed.  Any spelling errors from here out are staying, because if I have to hit that backspace button one more time, I might scream.  Ok, enough of my whining, on to the fun stuff!

Starting with next week’s Friday Favorites, I’ll be celebrating the one year anniversary of Crafty Staci with some fun stuff…stay tuned to find out what!

Paper and Wire Hearts

I’m supposed to be cleaning up my sewing room.  Everything needs to be taken off the old shelves and put onto the new.  Instead, I’m making stuff.  It’s sort of like when your kid finds a toy at the bottom of the box he hasn’t seen for a while.  That’s all he wants to play with for a couple of days.  I’m there...
