Yep I'm here... AND I got all crafty {V-day bunting}

So um yeah it's been almost a month since I last posted...oops.  So much for being back.  The blog and crafting has been put on the back burner because my focus has been on other things, stressful things but very important things.  Vague enough for you?  And because of the stress from these things I have had NADA motivation to craft and/or blog.  I could have blogged about Lily peeing on the potty for the first time or that Natalie puked outside on our deck in the snow or that my beautiful rug has been ruined by dog pee but i figured you may not find that too riveting or pin worthy ;)

BUT today I got all crafty. I was inspired by one of my bff's Ali, who makes the most amazing buntings.  They are always perfection. Check out her shop to see for yourself! I had the idea in my head for awhile but finally found the motivation to bring it to life.

And here is what I came up with.

A pretty valentine bunting.

Kraft paper, doilies, and paper hearts.

Simple but pretty.

So thanks Ali. XO

And before I go my pal Ryan has something to tell you...

And in case you didn't know...

Hehe...isn't pinterest FANTASTIC?  It's the little things, right?
Later gators.

Linking up here:


  1. it looks so cute! and i love your touch of aqua, of course!
    jake peed on our carpet last night and charlie dug a huge hole in the yard today though i tried to stop him and by the time i got to him i heard something squeaking which would have been the mouse in his mouth. so then i left him out in the yard until chris got home and chris was annoyed with me.... but yeah, that stuff was not blog worthy!

  2. I love your bunting and that blog giveaway made me crack up (Because that is so what I feel like most of the time). Anyway, glad your baaack!

  3. Very pretty, Andi. I love the addition of the doilies, and I really love the kraft paper look. Nice! I LOVE the "hey girl" pins all over Pinterest. Sometimes I laugh right out loud :)

  4. LOVE the look of the bunting! It just occurred to me that February starts tomorrow... so I'd better get my decorating started if it's going to happen.
