Fancy Fabrics & Crazy Crafter

It still feels like the North Pole here, and school is closed for a third day Lord help me! And since we can’t go to Hobby Lobby anywhere, we’ve started some Valentine projects using only supplies we have on hand. Desperate times people!

It’s not much warmer where she is, but today I’m hanging at Danielle Oakey Interiors, as part of her inspiring series, Textile Thursdays. I have really enjoyed getting to know Danielle, and she is one talented designer! I love having friends with mad skills! Hopefully she’s got a hot tottie chocolate waiting…so come over and check out fabrics in my home.

Oh, and I know some of you are probably wondering about the fate of my pumpkins (newbies can catch up here, here and here).

Well, fear not, three have made it this far, and are now showing their love!

I figured I’ve fallen this far off the Crazy Craft Wagon, I might as well ride the train all the way to Kooktown! Now I consider these pumpkins a challenge and will see them through as many holidays as they manage to survive.

Cabin Fever? Perhaps, but I’ve got a belly full of s’mores and a front porch with pink pumpkins….whatchugot?!
Don’t worry, I should be back to my “normal” self tomorrow, and have a cute Valentine project to show you. Until then, come say ‘Hi’ at Danielle Oakey Interiors!

    That is to funny. I remember reading your post about changing your pumpkins to fit your Christmas decor. -Love the Valentines pumpkins.

    I think im going to try this because we still have our 3 large pumpkins, still very much 'alive' and still very hard.

  15. Maybe someone needs to have a spray paint sponsor. I am just saying. Might help you kick the habit. I kid. I LOVE me some pink pumpkins. We are making crafts with found objects today as well. Hope you all warm up soon. Thinking of you.

  20. Freakin' cracking up about the Valentine's pumpkins! Those are AWESOME! 🙂 Desperate times do call for desperate measures! They just called for no school tomorrow down here, so you will probably have your little loves home again tomorrow. 🙂 I'm thinking of keeping the monkey home with me tomorrow just so I can snuggle with him all day. 🙂

  26. Hi! I found out about your blog from Danielle's site! It's great. I love that you use pumpkins all year round! I love doing pumpkin topiaries, painted in polka dots and stripes. I leave it out all fall. Cool idea to use it for other holidays too.

  30. I actually LOVE the Valentines pumpkins. They are something that you would never expect to see and that is what I like most. Since I've never really decorated much for any holiday accept Christmas an I don't do that to well I love the inspiration I have been getting.
