First and most important -- today is my sister's birthday!! Here are the presents I made for her.
A Birthday Love Banner
I used music sheets for the pennants, sewing a seam in the top and then painting them with pinks and red acrylic paints. The letters are chipboard, pre-made, that I edged with a cranberry-colored Stampin' Up stamp pad and the embellishments are brads and clips. A closer view:
And her other gift is this sweet canvas and linen pillow, with her picture as a one-year-old featured front and center. She was my parents' first child and, like all first babies, she was their treasure.
And finally, lest you think New Yorker's aren't a romantic bunch, here is a bike in the West Village, decorated for my sister's birthday!! (And maybe for the Love Ride at Washington Square, too.)
How did you celebrate Valentine's Day???
