DIYP #34 Framed Letters & {SWAK Winners}

{Keep reading for an important announcement!}


Do you need a fun kid-friendly activity for the long weekend?

Try a Valentine's Bottle Cap Necklace. I tell you how over at Blissfullly Domestic.

And now for another super easy idea!

This is for all of you readers, watchers, passers-by of the weekly DIYP.

You can do this. And the possibilities are endless:

Grab some letters in the scrapbooking department of your local craft store:

I've been trying to figure out a way to use the cool metal letters I found on clearance:

Grab an empty frame. I found this one 90% off in the leftover Christmas decor:

S-p-e-l-l it out.
I just glued down the letters and stuck it in the frame:
I have a lot of old frames, so I could get out of hand with this little DIYP!


If you haven't had a chance to visit the S.W.A.K. carnival, go now and read more than 150 inspiring love stories!


Or at least take a hint and go kiss someone! Happy Valentine's Day.

P.S. Don't miss next weekend's project! I'm going to show you how I painted that little leopard lamp table!

Great carnival Kristen! Bummed that I didn't win anything, but I had a blast participating.
Congrats to the winners.
And I love your DIYP this week. You are sooooo creative. Some day I will actually do one of these. Some day.
Have a great weekend!

Oh, you've GOT to be kidding me! I was just saying today that I should stamp or paint or something some letters and make words and frame them and hang them on the wall as wall art. AND I WAS THINKING ABOUT YOU AND YOUR D.I.Y. PROJECTS THE WHOLE TIME THINKING, "WHAT WOULD KRISTEN DO?"
See? I knew you would totally think of something like this. And now I guess I should go ahead with the project, too, huh? :P

Thank you for hosting this wonderful carnival. I got some great comments about my post. I think it helped some people to realize that how he shows you that he still loves you in the little things he does. Sorry I didn't win, but congratulations to those who did. Maybe I'll have better luck next time! Happy Valentine's Day!
