Happy February! My amazing and creative friend & coworker, Pegah, hosted another of her signature 'knit and eat' parties for February. Since I have not given my 'all' in learning and practicing the craft of knitting, I decided to turn to pinterest in search of a 'craft' to do while the others were knitting.
|Pegah prepared all of the delicious breakfast food for us- her granola is amazing. She is also the potter/painter of the mugs and bowls seen above. See more of her work on her blog http://baftani.blogspot.com/2012/12/tea-time.html|
I was incredibly inspired when I came upon this googly eye valentine pin by Parents magazine in which I immediately posted "I am so making these!' http://pinterest.com/pin/14918242487815683/
I told the girls about the google eye valentine idea, and they all wanted in. Instead of knitting, the craft turned to valentine's day-silly-card-making. I collected the supplies for everyone to make their own valentines. At Michael's craft store, I found the Martha Stewart 1 inch circle punch and large 25mm googly eyes (.98 inches) (which makes a perfect fit!).
|Supplies included; Martha heart punch and Martha 1" circle punch, googly eyes, elmers glue, 5.5x4.25 folded cards, printouts with patterns and solid colors, scissors, markers/colored pencils ...|
After eating a delicious brunch we went to work making valentines . . .

Happy Valentines Day!
