Red White & Black

Have you noticed how drab the house looks when all the Christmas decorations come down? It’s sad to me to see all the pretty red and green things long gone. While my decor has some color to it and isn’t drab, I think it’s those pops of color that really keep the winter season from becoming drab.

For this very reason, I’ve expanded my Valentine’s Day decor to add some beautiful red and white…and even a little black…to my home. I created a Valentine’s Day initial flag a few years ago and am always so excited to pull it out. They are available in my etsy shop here  if this is something you might like to add to your holiday decorations.

Then, I made a wreath for the carport door using white mesh, different ribbons, pipe cleaners and a heart wire wreath form.

These things make me so happy and I think the touch of black is unexpected yet it adds some unexpected boldness to the pieces. What do you think? Let me know if you try it out! 🙂

Simplification

This year has found me working on curbing my ambition just a bit. I designed many different creations for The Cozy Loft shop because my creativity can sometimes know no bounds. 2016 shall be the year of simplifying, though!

Since these two holidays and events are coming up fast and furious, I thought I’d share a couple of seasonal items with you.

Mardi Gras will be February 9th and I have a flag I created that’s just perfect for showing your love of the party!! It’s available here:

Then, of course, the sweet Valentine’s Day. And how could I not create something bold and beautiful red for such a special occasion? I wanted it to be eye-catching and also have a last initial monogram on it. It’s available here:

I can’t believe how fast time is already moving in this new year. Wasn’t it just Thanksgiving? Ahhhh there are no brakes on life, though, so let’s keep on keeping on!! 🙂
