Valentine's Day is Coming!

I think this is the first year I am truly excited! This isn't my favorite celebration--all too contrived for me. But, this year, I have been looking for crafts for Valentine's Day--not candy, card, or flowers--something fun. I started off easy...



I have had bits and pieces stored away for a couple of years now for just this type of craft. When I saw this plate, I knew I was finally going to do it. I already had just the bowl to go with it to make a stand. It seemed so easy that I felt the need to double check how to do it. Wouldn't you know--I couldn't find directions anywhere now that I needed them. I have seen this on so many blogs--ARGHHH. Finally, out of frustration, I worked on something else, but I couldn't get it out of my head. I started blog hopping through craft blogs and found the Mama Monster. And, guess what, she had the craft tutorial I wanted--yay! So, I made mine right away. And, then I had to see what else the Mama Monster had--be sure to check out her great blog, Made by the Mama Monster!

And, a recap tutorial:
Plate + Bowl + E6000 glue
Leave it upside down while the glue dries.


Flip it over, load with cookies/brownies/cupcakes/something cute, and ENJOY!

So easy and so fun to have.
