Challenge #89 - Love is in the air, and in the HOME.- UPDATED

Our sincere apologies for posting this week's challenge late.
There was an out of town trip, prepping for the Super Bowl, and have you seen MY blog post of last Wednesday? I have been a purging fool.

Before we get to the challenge this week, we want to announce the WINNER, WINNER from last week. Remember we offered up a PRIZE to a participant?!?!?!

Deena, Electra, Lori, Holley, Hazel, Deanna and Scrappy

you are ALL winners!

Yup, that's right, ALL of you will be receiving a surprise package in the mail. Consider it a reward because you weren't CHICKEN and posted a project last week.

We just need an email with your address, because we are really organized and can't find our address books. Without the spaces email Jana at: jdeegs @ cox . net


Alright then, on to this weeks challenge:

Create some sort of decoration for your HOME.

On your mark, get ready, GO....

Jana here: Valentines Day is mearly a week away. I am in the middle of making a LOVELY banner to hang from the mantel. The rest of the mantel could use some sprucing up, but the banner is going to look quite festive.
EDITED: I finished the banner. Here is the whole thing. You can see close up pictures of each heart on my blog HERE.

So far this is what I have: This is what it looked like up until Monday afternoon. I ended up only using 5 of the 6 hearts I covered. Wonder what I'll use that last heart for????

I'll be working it this week. I still have ribbon, lace and glitter to add. And maybe a few more hearts. Oh, and some BLING too. Check back later in the week, I'll have pictures of the completed banner to post.

Worked it. AND it's done. I love the end product. 


Rosemary here - here I am with my late late entry.  Sorry about the delay, I'm the Poobah who took the circus on the road and spent wonderful time with eight little petri dishes of germs I like to call my nieces and nephews.  Wouldn't trade it for the world.  But now I'm sick, however, I did finish a LOVE banner for this week and here it is for you to see!


Show us what you made or are working on.

Congrats to the winners! I wasn't chicken. I was just busy running around like a chicken with my head cut off (pun intended). ;)
