This, That, and Everything in Between- March 2018

Y’all, it’s March!! 
How is that already possible? I seriously have no idea where the first two months of the year have gone. 
But enough about me not being able to wrap my mind around how fast time is flying, it is time to recap our family adventures from February. 
So here is what we were up to last month.
 We started the month by taking our last foster baby back to the shelter
to get adopted. She finally broke out of her super shy shell and was
showing herself more and more so we knew it was time to get her a
forever family. We took her back on a Saturday and she went home Monday
with her family. So happy she didn’t have to stay long before she was
adopted! 

Living in WI, we get our fair share of snow in the winter. We had a family day of clearing snow and then playing one day and I felt the need to snap a few photos of the house while we were outside. 
We just had another major storm blow through dumping a good deal of snow and I pray that it is going to be our last of the season! 
 
 Valentine’s day was a fun day. 
Every day leading up to Valentine’s day, we placed hearts with words of encouragement and what we love about the girls on each other their doors to wake up too. 
Then on Valentine’s day both girls had school and school parties so that meant Travis and I could have lunch alone together that afternoon. He brought all of us home flowers to go with the handmade cards that he and I create and exchange every year. Then for dinner we made a heart shaped pizza and cut brownies into hearts as well. 
It was a fun, sweet day!
 President’s Day weekend the girls and Travis both had off quite a few days so we decided to surprise the girls and take a little staycation of sorts. 
We drove an hour north of us to a hotel that had a water park inside for an evening where we had some family fun swimming. 

The hotel was also attached to a family fun zone, arcade type of place so after swimming, we got all cleaned up, ate some dinner, then headed over for more family fun.

But that wasn’t where the fun ended! The next morning we ate breakfast then headed an hour west into Missouri to the cute little town of Stillwater to surprise the girls again by taking them to the Ice Castle there in town. Best part was, Anna and Elsa were at the ice castles and the girls got to see and talk to them. It was a exciting afternoon!
 Then on the spur of the moment whim, we decided to head to Minneapolis since we were only 30 minutes away from the Mall of America to go the aquarium before driving home. The girls loved seeing all the fish and it was a long, fun, exhausting day!
 Toward the end of the month, Travis had a work function at the ski hill on post and we got to get in some tubing before it started. Miss P loved it and Miss S on the other hand did not. We were lucky enough to get her to go down twice but she was done after that. 
All well! We’ll try again when she is older. 
The girls finished their gymnastic class at the end of the month. They both loved it and did great during this session.
Before the month came to a close, I had a paint party at the house doing a painting that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time. Travis and Miss P even jumped in on the action since it was a small party. 
And lastly, I have been playing around with small stamped watercolor paintings lately. They are mini paintings and are so fun to create. And if I am in my craft room working on anything, my little shadow has to be right there with me! 
I believe that’s it in a nut shell! 
I am sure I am missing something but that’s ok. 
I know I have been super quiet on the blog lately and I have been wanting to craft but so far nothing has really come to me. When it does, I’ll be sure to share it! 
Stay tuned for more adventures next month!

Rosette Heart Sign

Happy Monday! 
Did you watch the big game yesterday? 
I’m thrilled the Eagles won so Congrats to them and all of Philly! 
 But anyways, I am back again today with another project. 
 
 This is an easy project and doesn’t really take a lot of time either which is a win win! 
Supplies:
-Hot Glue Gun
-Pallet (bought this at Wal-Mart)
-Felt
-Scissors
-Paint Pen
-Glitter or stickles (optional)
I’m bringing back the felt rosettes that were pretty popular a few years ago. 
They are quick and easy to make and they always turn out so well! 
 Begin by cutting the felt in half long wise. Then cut each half in thirds.
Cut each square in a circle. You can cut it even or cut it a little curvy to give the petals of the flowers more shape.
Then cut a spiral from the outside to the inside of the circle.
Place a little bit of hot glue on the end of the felt and roll it inward.
Continue rolling until there is a flap left which is the very center of the circle.
Place hot glue on the center area and then glue the flap down to hold the flower together.
Here is the flap glued down.
Continue making all the rosettes until you have the desired amount. 
I used 2 1/2 sheets of felt for a total of 14 flowers.
If your heart is larger you will need more flowers.
Glue the rosettes onto the palette in a heart shape. 
I chose to only make the outline of the heart but you could fill it in if you’d like. 
I didn’t want just the heart so I wrote the word love under it in pencil.
I then used a white paint pen to go over the word. 
I was thrilled with it just like this but if you’ve been around here long enough, you know I also love some glitter so….
I pulled out some of my Stickles and glittered up the word love.
And it was just the right amount of glitter that it needed.
And that’s it! 
 I love how it came out! 
 I hung it above my faux mantle along with my painted bud vases and I just love the simplicity of the look. 
Have you decorated for Valentine’s Day yet?
