We Can All Use A Little Love

Let me begin by expressing my heartfelt sympathy to the victims and families of the tragic shooting at Northern Illinois University. NIU is my and my husband's alma mater. None of my children go to school there, but they know many who do. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the NIU community this evening.

On to a lighter note. We had our 5th enrichment club this afternoon. This little guy was our final Valentine's Day project. Didn't he turn out cute? Sorry for the glare on the photo. I was running out of daylight and shot him quickly. He is from SU's Toucan of My Love set. We watercolored him with Orange Peel Twinkling H20s, and filled in the little hearts with Pink Passion marker. We used googly eyes and a clear Spica pen on the hearts. You might be able to see that in the close up photo. I just love those Spica glitter pens. The clear is fantastic. I got mine from Ellen's store, but it doesn't look like clear is available right now. Here is another place I have found litter Pens, and they are on sale too. I wish SU would carry them. The candy is a Nestle Crunch heart which matches SU's PinkPassion perfectly!

Tomorrow I will try to post the other project we did today. I need to get a photo in good light.
Happy Valentine's Day. Go give all of your loved ones a big hug and a kiss. Thanks for stopping by.
