Valentine's Day Kraft Bag Treat holders

I love crafting for Valentine's Day. Its just so much more fun to make things when they are going to someone you love!

Doilies and kraft bags are two of my new go-to items. Below are a few of the treat bags I will be doing for my girls' classes that use both. They fit the snack size kit kat's perfectly.  I think the felt butterflies and hearts are precious and I could hand sew piles of those together all day.

Hope my little ladies know these were heart felt (pun intended) when they get to swap treats in class.

They are of course available in the Curtsey Boutique.

Embellish Creatively,

Vintage Advertisements for Wall Art and Crafting

Ever since I happened across this idea for wall art on the Live. Eat. Smile. blog using modern magazine advertisements, I have been on the hunt for vintage images to create a similar affect.
This week I purchased an amazing stash of Vintage Vogue magazines from the 1940s and 1950s. These magazines are in phenomenal condition. I hope I look this good when I am 60+ years old. I am madly in love with them and have picked a few for my home. I will also be offering many of them for sale in the Curtsey Boutique.
Here are a few of my favorites - fabulous don't you think?

Don't the amazing fashions and beautiful illustrations get your creative mind to running wild?

Lovin' the vintage vibe,
