365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

# 34-36 Love At First Sight Blog Hop

***If you are continuing on the Love Is In The Air Blog Hop please scroll down to next post***

Blog Hop

Hello everyone welcome to The Love At First Sight Blog Hop hosted by me! This is my first time hosting a hop all by myself I feel all grown up now LOL! I had the idea for the hop to celebrate a few things... first of all I would like to celebrate the anniversary of the date my hubby Ricky and I first met on February 2, 2003 it really was Love At First Sight! Really!! I knew I wanted to be with him forever from the moment I saw him, and he felt the same way about me too! So 1 year later we got married, we got married on Febraury 28th, 2004 in Viva Las Vegas woo-hoo!! Yep a lot of people thought we weren't going to last since we were young and since we got married in Vegas, boy did we prove them wrong! This hop is very special to me because my hubby just got back from Iraq last week and he was gone for a total of 5 long months so I said we are going to celebrate every single holiday since he missed out on the big holidays over the last months. We are also celebrating Valentine's Day. So I asked all of these wonderful talented ladies to join me in my triple celebration in this Lovely Love Month Of Febraury by making a Love-Themed gift for someone we love.  Some of us will be sharing pictures of us with the person we are creating the gifts for. Here is one of Ricky and I at the Marine Corps. Ball in '05. I love this picture it came out better then the photographers picture!

Here are the projects I made for my hubby (well except for one it's kind of girly LOL!)

Here's a picture frame I made with American Craft's paper, glossy modge podge, the owls and sentiment are from Hoot N Holler Cricut Lite. The faces are both from Peachy Keen Stamps, Critter Faces and Simple Simons. That's me and my honeybun!

This digi is from a brand new digi company called Kich N Bleus Design's. I colored it with Bic markers, stamped the sentiment with PKS and the talk bubble is from Gyspy Wandering. Thank you Kich N Bleus (Abby & Kich) for sponsoring this digi for my hop!

This digi is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo she is called Polly Pippin In Love the sentiment is also from DDLL. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils, and embossed with my Cuttlebug. Thank you to Digital Delights by Louby Loo for sponosring this digi!

Love your projects. Valentines Day isn't a "big deal" in our house. Sad, but true. We exchange cards and maybe a little gift, but it isn't a big production. Having 4 kids at home kinda makes it hard. Thanks for the chance to win.


LadybugCarrie said...

Great projects! Thanks for sharing! And Happy Anniversary a little early! My husband and I don't have big plans for Valentine's Day - we will probably go out to dinner and then just spend time together!

Simply AJ said...

Congrats on hosting your first Hop! I am already a follower and always enjoy your projects and blog! Not sure what our plans are for Valentines Day. V'day is a special day for us because we had our first date on Valentines Day 31 yrs ago (we went to the fair and he asked me to go steady on top of the farris wheel - that was romantic to a 16 yr old - HeHe) Still happily married for 29 years! Thanks for the hop and for a chance to win! AJ

Kathy Starline said...

I am a brand new follower, I stumbled upon your blog from another blog that I check out daily. I can't wait to look around more. As for what we do on V-day, since having children it's more about our love for them then my husband and I doing anything for each other. We will surprise the kids with a special treat and homemade card.

Paula said...

cute projects and wow creating something every day that is a task good luck with it. Valentines day this year falls on a cheer practice day so we will probably end up in Starbucks never been really big on valentines day as we share our love and thoughtfulness throughout the year not just on one day although it does give us another reason to get crafty as if we really need one

CeltikGirlCreations said...

I love that you and your husband are so romantic! Your projects are so cute as well. This year my husband and I will make a special card for one another. We make the cards as a way to say to each other what a lot of store bought cards cannot. Also for my two children I will make them each a special "I Luvvers You" basket with a card I will make along with a small gift.

Love your projects. For Valentines, I won't be with hubby - I am watching my grand babies while mom is deployed for a couple of weeks. Thank heavens for webcams. I am a follower of your site now.

The Crafty Aunt! said...

I am so glad to have found your blog!!!

I have never celebrated Valentine's Day because it is my Grandma's birthday!

This year I work so we will be visiting my Grandma on the weekend.

This amazing woman will be 91 this year. She has been through so much lately and we all have a fear that this will be the last year for her to spend with her loving husband of 66 years. My Grandpa most likely will not make it til next year.

I enjoy spending each year with her...love hearing her stories!


Sheree said...

Sandra, first of all...Happy Anniversary and I am so glad your DH is home for awhile! You look so beautiful in your dress! I love your projects...always...and I am so happy that you are celebrating each holiday with your hubby and family. They miss out on so much when they are overseas. I know the 5 months felt like 5 years...but you did it girlfriend! I am so proud of you!

jean said...

having alot of fun hopping around & looking at soooo many pretties!!!!

LeanneC said...

Your projects are great .... and what a good looking couple! Plan on passing out sweets at work to all my "peeps" and then a nice dinner with hubby (& kids) hopefully! TFS!

Jennifer said...


Happy Anniversary!!! :)

I love your projects! You are such an inspiration!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you for sharing so many!

I love celebrating Valentine's Day (truth be told, we are always finding little reasons to celebrate & don't just wait for the big holidays)! We usually set a small gift by our children's breakfast plates (I'm behind this year, but last year we got heart-shaped chocolate boxes from See's and the year before we used Valentine Beanie Babies!) and make pink, heart-shaped pancakes! My children are still young enough (6 & 8) that I usually get to volunteer at their school parties (what fun!) and then we have a special, candle-lit dinner with heart-shaped creme brulee with raspberries for dessert (I usually will make a decadent heart-shaped chocolate cake, too)!

Thank you so much for sharing and for the chance to win (you can never have enough stamps! ;)!

Crafty hugs,

On V-Day, it's likely just another day in a household of "Love Everyday." It's also my older sister's birthday and so we'll celebrate that too. I have a new grandbaby so I think I'll make some cupcakes to celebrate that little tartlet! ♥

Sue said...

I'm afraid Valentine's Day will be subdued at my house this year! My hubby and I usually go out, but this year our daughter will be home. She and her very serious boyfriend just broke up, so I don't think we'll "celebrate" quite like we usually do.

~ What great projects for your anniversary/hubby! And so exciting to have him home safe and sound for you to celebrate with!!

~ I'm a new Follower of your Blog!

~ I have no plans for Valentine's Day. Even though Hubs proposed to me on Valentine's, we don't usually do anything. Especially the last couple years - I was laid off plus I'm going to school so we'll probably just stay in and watch a movie!

My Valentine's day will be spent working 12 hours. I'm a pharmacy technician...so my co-workers will have to be my valentines this year. I have some cute favor bags using TBBM, so I'm excited to give them their goodies. My boyfriend and I usually don't celebrate Valentines day (we've both had some really bad experiences) so I'm ok with working :)

Leah said...

I want to say I'm a follower. Thank you to your husband for his service. I am married to a NAVY sailor myself. I must say I know what you mean about celebrating the holidays. My husband was gone for a 13 1/2 long months period of time to which I decorated certain parts of the house to represent the holidays he missed. You could say the house was a bit confusing but the time we spent celebrating each one was priceless. Congratulations on your anniversary. I must say your projects are wonderful.


Heather said...

I am glad your hubby is home safe and sound. I thank him for serving our country. :) Congrats on your upcoming anniversary. My hubby and I got married young too and after dating for only 3 months. No one thought we would last either but 16 years and 3 kids later we are still so much in love. I hope you and your hubby find the same lasting happiness. My Valentines Day will be spent (hopefully) preparing for State Wrestling (if my son qualifies). Fingers crossed!!

Your projects are great. TFS

Happy Anniversary and congratulations on hosting your first hop!
Your projects are all so wonderful. I am a follower and on Feb. 14th I will be spending the afternoon in physical therapy and then come home and cook a nice "special" meal for my DH. Then we will eat and probably sit to watch tv and both fall asleep...LOL. Yeah, not very romantic but hey...we all celebrate in our own ways I guess.

OOOH I almost forgot. What me and my hubby do for valentines day is we exchange cards and we're going to have dinner at home with the kids because we love them too!!!! (Not in a sick way, wanted to clarify that) We're buying our first home this year so we're pre occupied with that. So, we're doing it nice and simple at home.

You projects came out so adorable. I have no idea what our plans are for valentiene's day . I have been asking DH but he says I dont know. I figure we may just go out for dinner and a movie and ice skating, just like we did last year. It's hard for us to get time for ourselves from the baby but hey that's life.

thank you for sharing you awesome creativity and the candy is awesome

GIJoesWife said...

Congrats on your hubby coming home... I know what that's like!! My hubby was in the Air Force when we married.

This year we aren't really celebrating Valentine's Day, as it will be the first Ann. of my Aunt's Passing.... But usually we go to dinner and just enjoy time together as a couple.

I loved the picture frame it was really cute. I like the saying and for some reason I LOVE Owls so that really caught my attention.


Scrappy Jackie said...

I just love hops! Thank you so much for hosting this one and sharing all of your fun projects with us... I do not have plans actually on Valentines Day... but am looking forward to Saturday and spending time with my fabulous guy! Valentines Day will involve pink milk... a tradition! (green for st patricks) and probably serving heart shaped food for my family. Hamburgers and red jello are always pretty easy. or heart shaped homemade pizza! Thanks for sharing! So many prizes too! pjritsema at gmail dot com

Joe (Create & Craft) said...

What a great goal! A cricut project every day! I can't wait to see what a year of creativity brings! I discovered your blog through K. Andrew (whom I just met at CHA).

For Valentine's Day, I plan on buying a "Lobster Bake" for my partner and I to share. It's basically 2 lobsters, the vegies, salad, dessert - everything you need for a great meal at home!

Happy upcoming Anniversary! That is fun that you are making up for things- this year my hubby will be TDY for Valentines day so I will celebrate how much I love our children and then we will make it up later- that is what we are best at anyhow :) (military life is so conducive to celebrating things on the REAL date when they occur). Thanks for the chance to win, I am excited to see new blogs and be inspired.
