Fifteen minutes. Fifteen minutes of quiet. Fifteen minutes to do whatever my little heart desires. As a new mother of two, I’ve learned just how magical coinciding naps can be. So when the heavens shined down on us the other day, I grabbed some supplies and busted out a quick Valentine’s Day garland.
I had some craft paper laying around, probably from some grand project I had planned last year but never finished. After cutting out the letters, I attached them to some bakers twine with mini clothes pins and I was done.
Literally, 15 minutes. It was a child free miracle. Last years garland was a little grander (and more labor intensive), but I was just impressed I actually finished a project!
And p.s., look at all the live plants on the mantel! My thumb might be turning a light shade of gray.
And p.p.s., see the wall behind the fireplace? We painted again! Pics to come…some day.
