“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Valentine's Day crafts

As soon as Christmas is over my thoughts are on Valentine's Day.
Pink hearts, dusky purple skies, 
chocolate covered cherries, red glitter...
I love it!
I thought I was getting better....
I was painting, creating dollies, 
working on the gypsy wagon, 
 hanging ice cream (that's another post altogether)
So my last post was delayed.
These are a couple of the creations I was working on while I was stuck recuperating .

 Found this cage at Michael's.
I used ink from a stamp pad to paint it
then crepe papered the bird and added glitter, of course:)

 The carnival Lulu doll from Lisa Kettell 
never fails to inspire me.
I just added some heart pics, trim and stamps.

I'm still not 100% yet, but I'm getting there, and oh man am I tired of being sick!
Meanwhile, the shops are filling up with red & pink
and that makes me happy.

I hope everyone is doing fine and YOU'RE feeling happy and healthy
in your corner of the world.

See you soon.


  1. Oh, Poor Marfi! So sorry you've been under the weather. I got sick at the tail end of Christmas Vacation....took a good week to feel "right" again.....being sick sucks!

    Yes, I can see your glittery heart skipping a beat in the aisles right now.....pure sugar pink and red tart overload :D

    Feel better soon!

  2. Marfi,
    Gosh dang it, I wish that bug would go away! And I wish you would feel super well soon :)

    I love your sweet valentine creations!
    The bird cage is so cute and your Lulu doll valentine is so sweet.. I like her pink hair.

    You know, I have never ever decorated for Valentines day until this year...I love it so much i plan to decorate every year.

    Have yourself a fantastic weekend:)


  3. Glad that you are on the mend.....I am just now getting sick....and it's miserable. I love Valentine's day too....it's also my anniversary....and my favorite is chocolate covered cherries.....I actually get them at Christmas time too!!
