Sweet Valentine. Yes the last one!

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.


Accents: Felt Flowers by Maya Roads, Kiss/Hugs ribbon by American Crafts, Hearts ribbon by American Crafts, I Love You ribbon by American Crafts, Polka Dot Ribbon by May Arts, Pink Gingham Ribbon , Sweet sticker by MM

Have a wonderful day!

That is a really cute pail. So, what did you fill it with and who was the recipient? Inquiring minds want to know!

Oh, hope you're on the mend very soon - it's been a bad year for viruses, you prob just got every version going. The pail is really cute - and the wee red shovel, och!!

So sorry to hear about you being sick, again! I hope you find something out at the doc and it's nothing more serious than needing more r/r, aka stamping time?! ;)

The bucket and shovel is just darling and I love the gingham--perfect!

Alli, sure hope you are soon feeling back on top of the world! This pail is darling--an idea to keep in mind for next year--or even Easter coming up. Target usually has some small pails or Michael's, too.
