Valentine’s day holds different meanings to many people. While some love it and some hate it, I tend to enjoy it. It isn’t the same kind of enjoyment it may have been many years ago when my hubby and I were teenage sweethearts, but it still holds a magic all its own. A special day, aside from birthdays and our anniversary to really tell one another what we don’t always say.
This year was no exception, my husband was so sweet, he couldn’t wait to give me my gift, along with the words of wisdom, “Don’t kill this one please.” (Last year’s sweet gift of a rose-bush didn’t make it… oops!) But he knows my weakness, chocolate, oh sweet chocolate!!!
Valentine’s day now holds something a little different however, since having kids. It now means monsters! The kind that forgets to tell you until last-minute that they need a valentine box to take to school. And then aren’t quick on the “thank you” when it is finished and ready for them the next morning. But oh well, they are a work in progress aren’t they!
There was also a little something extra I made last night to give the kids teachers a little “pick-me-up” giggle today. I remade my version of a cute gift found on Pinterest (yes, that sight again, it’s addicting) and made Teacher’s Valentine’s Day stress relievers!
I hope you has a great day!! Tell someone in your life you love them.
I am so excited about all the chances a new year brings. Chances like this to introduce a new Faithfully Fun creation that my daughter and I are tickled pink about! Little girls love their baby dolls and these are matching headband sets for them and their dolls! My daughter and her doll, whose name changes depending on the day, have been sporting theirs all afternoon.
I am just so in love with them. Why is that things in miniature are just so adorable? Well, when these unfinished headbands came in the mail I just couldn’t wait to get ahold of them and add some color, and they are just so tiny and cute!
I hope you will check them out by visiting my Faithfully Fun Facebook page!
Thank you so much for visiting today. While you are here leave a comment below with what color combinations you think would look best on a set of headbands!!
Have a blessed day!
Wow, I can’t believe it is 2013 already! 2012 was gone too fast. However, I am very excited about what a new year brings, and for Faithfully Fun I hope it brings lots of new opportunities and many new creations!
One new item that was originally not going to be revealed until this year, but that several people received a sneak peek of around Christmas is the new Mommy/Nana necklaces! They are so much fun to make and personalize! Here is a small sample of some I finished around the holidays!
I really enjoy them and have loved the orders I have received so far. Being able to create something adorable and special for each mom and grandma! The feedback from everyone has been so encouraging!
There are so many new items I hope to add to the line ups this year and I hope you will follow me on Facebook and Twitter so you are sure not to miss any of them!
May God bless you and yours in this new year.

I love creativity. I love making things, anything crafty. I love that I see that same quality in my children. In this house it seems someone is always making something!
This week I have made final preparations for my last craft show appearance of the year. Once again checking over my items, my inventory, and making anything new that I can. I get so excited and love working with my ribbon and hot glue! I love making things that make others smile, especially kids, and that is part of what makes Faithfully Fun so, well, Fun! I love the smiles on the little faces when they see each piece, especially the characters when they recognize what they are. (That also makes me feel like I did a good job if they know who it is supposed to be!)
This week two of the characters I focused were inspired by well-known books, Alice & Dorothy!
There will also be my Faithfully Fun Friday post on Nanahood.com later today about these fun woven headbands that were just too cute not to make! 🙂
While you are there, be sure to check out the super fun giveaway based on the new Billy Crystal & Bette Midler movie “Parental Guidance.” You can find it here.
I have been so happy this month to be focusing on Breast Cancer awareness with Teresa at Nanahood.com! Nanahood is blogging pink until there is a cure but for the month of October it is like pink on steriods! Everything is about getting the word out there, getting the focus on awareness and doing anything we can as indiviuals to help find a cure!
I am trying to help do my small part to get the word out there this month. Each week in October, through my Faithfully Fun Fridays posts we are giving away a new Think Pink creation. The first week was the Think Pink Heart.
The response was wonderful. Thanks to sales from this pin after the giveaway Faithfully Fun was able to make its first donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure though the Nanahood team! I am so happy to be able to do even a little bit to help others with what they are struggling with!
Last week the pin given away was the Pink Ribbon Butterfly. Again these are now for sell and a portion of each one sold will go straight to breast cancer research through her team.
If you are interested in how you can help please be sure and visit Nanahood.com today! If you would like one of these pins for yourself or for a family member please send me a message or find me on our Faithfully Fun facebook page! The heart pins are $6 each and the butterfly pins are $8.
Be sure and follow Nanahood.com so you won’t miss a moment of the Think Pink drive! Check back this Friday for my new post and to see the new design that we will be giving away and what you can do to win! I really appreciate all the support everyone has shown and hope in some small way we are showing all those out there who are suffering from this monster that we care!
I don’t know if it is our new house, the discovery of Pinterest, or just something in the air but I have been feeling more arts & crafty lately than I think I ever have!
Our new front door decor!
