Heart Frame Just Waiting for a Man

As a single lady with no "Valentine" to call my own this year, I found myself strolling through the aisles of Michaels wondering if all this love stuff applies to me.

Just how crafty can I get?

And darnit, aren't I enough to craft for?

So, I started with a simple project. I found a heart-shaped wood frame for $1 and, minus my 40% coupon, it cost only 60cents. Pulling out some never-used scrapbook paper and my trusty Mod Podge, I went at it.

Honestly, I am not that pleased with the finished product. What was I thinking cutting out all those geometric shapes? Maybe I should have gone with even pieces. Oh well, it is what it is.

Don't you just love my little cupid man in the opening?

One day, I will have a photo to put in it.

Hey Carmie! I really liked how your Valentine frame turned out! And I do agree with the unknown author about the chubby Cupid.

Thanks for commenting on my blog!

Have a great week!

I had to laugh at the quote on the bottom. I love that you framed cupid in the photo when you took it, too cute.

I think it turned out great. Why not put a nice quote on some great scrapbook paper in it in the meantime? Good job.
