Heart Hands

So this should have been a Valentine post, but I was so overwhelmed with moving at the time that I was lucky just to get the shot and get a few cards off to grandma and gramps.  Little K did NOT want to do the picture and we pretty much forced her hand in right […]

I posted this project on my private blog a several months ago and have had several requests for more instructions on the how-to. In our current house, we have giant mirrors above both of our upstairs sinks.  It would cost a fortune to buy a ‘nice’ mirror anywhere close to the right size for the […]
