I cannot believe I have the flu again! It never ends. Thank goodness for DH being around and my mum forcing me to go and see the doc. I am sure you mums out there know the last person you ever look after is yourself. Well tomorrow I am off for a series of blood tests to determine why my immunity is so low. If you are reading this and haven't been to the doc in the while I encourage you to go and get a check up.
I was in Michael's in January when they were first putting out the Valentine's items and I spied a very CUTE little shovel. I remembered I had a white metallic pail at home that would go perfectly with it. Now the thing about pails is they are round and putting paper on a bucket (unless you are doing modge podge) takes 1) patience 2) skill. And well let's just say the ribbon won. I am actually very pleased with how it turned out tho. What I like about this sweet Valentine's project is that you can fill it up with anything your heart desires: candies, gift certificates, home spa kit, kids toys, even man stuff!
I provided a few close ups for you to see the embelishments I added to the bucket.
