Last Minute Valentine’s Day Sign

Last week I said wreaths were one of my favorite DIY decor items. And I wasn’t lying. But another equally favorite item is a simple painted sign.

You can paint just about anything you can think of on a wooden sign, and I never get tired of incorporating them into holiday and every day decor.

Thinking about Quality versus Quantity

Something that has been on my never ending, always growing to-do list is to venture into handmade garments for myself and the family.

At first, it was just the idea of a special handknit sweater, maybe a pair of socks, and a sewn shirt. 

Only on occasion, and only extra special.

While this idea still holds the possibility of wonder and sentimentality, the idea has grown.

What if we each had a decent portion of our closet that was handmade? 

Or the majority?

Or all of it?
