I went to bed last night with a headache and sore throat, but woke up to a great day. I logged into my email this morning to discover that my up-cycled blanket was featured at knockoffdecor.com! I was so very excited! I have a "I was featured here" button now (my first one). So, instantly, my day became awesome.
Since I didn't have to work and the world is covered in a think blanket of snow today, I had to find a way to entertain myself at home. In my kitchen cupboard, I found a Christmas cookie pop kit from the clearance section at Target for 70% off. It came home with me a month ago to keep me busy on a day like this. With a little pink icing, they have been magically transformed into winter Valentine's cookies. Its kind of a stretch, but they taste really good, even if they look a little hokey.
I was also inspired to make paper heart garland by this post at ohsocrafty.blogspot.com. I cut one hundred and fifty five hearts out of magazine pages (it took way less time than you would think). I spent my morning on the living room floor gluing paper hearts on a string and watching United States of Tara. It was a good day off.
