Getting crafty with little dude. The big "V" day is tomorrow...wish I was as excited about all of it as he is. After overflowing the brain on pinterest late last night (yay for the i-pad and insomnia) I knew I wanted to put my own spin on a DIY project, but most importantly I didn't want to get stuck making everything completely by myself...I'd say this was a half way achiever.

I was invited to participate in another ART exchange by Michelle Allen of Close2MyArt. This year instead of solely doing Christmas ornaments Michelle opened the art swap up to any form or medium, the rules or rule I should say, were to hand make something you'd want to receive yourself. I procrastinated (again!)...I was so torn on what to make, at first I thought I'd sew something...but I couldn't seem to wrap my brain around anything specific that wouldn't be something everyone prolly already had. Then I stumbled on a 50% off canvas sale at the local Dakota Art store and figured...
