A crafty kind of snow day

Oh, how I love a snow day!  A bonus day.  A gift of a day.  A nothing planned because I should be at work day.  That is what today was. 
I've already covered how much I love snow... that's one of the reason I loved today.  I watched a lot of snow ball fights and playing in our back yard.  But the best part about today was getting to do some fun crafty things. 
Since my dining table was still covered in craft things from last weekends fun, I decided I could clean it up today or keep playing in the mess... I chose the mess.  We ate popcorn and watched movies in our P.J.'s while we crafted...

I am forcing a "Valentine Luncheon" on my girls in a couple of weeks.  When they were little we had a Valentine tea every year but the last couple of years they wouldn't agree to it... but this year I told them I was giving them a lunch for their friends and they couldn't stop me.  They have come around some, I think they are even getting excited about it now.  So, one of my projects I needed to get done was the invitation...


I had ran across an idea for a cute wreath made from burlap and since I have a love of burlap I knew I needed to make it...
When I looked back at the site today, she is having a "valentine party" with links to other blogs with valentine crafts.  That may take up the rest of my night tonight...
                                                    
It was very easy and basic but I really like it hanging on the mirror...

I also made a little Love garland for the entertainment center...

And while the glue gun was on.... when Jennifer was here with her cute headband she had made, the girls asked for me to make them a few ...

I guess tomorrow I should really clean the dining room....
