A Valentine Peek

Just a bit of my Valentine Mantel.
I spent 7 hours making all those tissue paper flowers.
7 hours!
At hour five...I realized perhaps this wasn't the best use of my time.
Another couple of hours of embellishment and I had a huge flower heart.

You can make one too....just tissue paper and coffee filters....and 9 hours of time.
I'll show the rest tomorrow.

Gorgeous!!!! It was well worth the 7 hours you spent on it, because you'll have it forever.

Oh my god girl.
I would have stopped after the first movie was over.
But it is Very Pretty.

Simply BEAUTIFUL make me laugh,
good art takes time...10 hours to paint my mom's sweatshirt. Nobody ever appreciates the time artists put into their work. But if it delights and brings joy it was worth it. No?

hahaha! Yesterday I sat pulling apart 10 tissue paper pompoms/flowers and thought exactly the same thing. Not nearly so fun as I remembered when I was a little girl.
