I Heart You

The other day I was over at my friend Camille's home and noticed her Valentine decked out home. I usually don't end up thinking about decorating for a holiday until a week and a half before and by then I feel it is too late and don't end up doing any decorating. This year I'm hoping to break that habit. I was inspired by Camille's hearts taped up on her windows. I saw these window hangings using crayon shavings which reminded me of a kindergarten activity in grade school. Nostalgic and pretty to look at. I'm hoping this project I can do with Nora. Check out how to make them here.

I have made these before and I love them! I also have done stars with them. I think it is fun to marble the crayon with different tones of pinks and purples. I was thinking about this the other day too, but I think I'll wait until next year to do it! Have fun!!
