Today I did a little catch up on a previous project. I tend to get enough done to make a post, and then I get wrapped up in making my blog post, that I don't fully complete my project.
A few days ago I made 20 tags for my heart crayon valentines. The first project I completed today was melting the rest of my heart crayons together.
I didn't attach the tags to the crayons yet though, so I'll have to post photos of that later.
Another thing I did today was make good use of the leftover cilantro from yesterday's chili. I hate having to throw away herbs because I didn't use them in time before they rot. To keep the cilantro overnight (or for a couple days), I kept the stems in a cup with water.
This morning I cleaned out two ice cube trays, and then I plucked (with my husband's help) the leaves off the cilantro. We jammed a ton of leaves into each cube, and we almost filled a tray of twelve.
Then we added some water to help it freeze together. Once they are solid cubes I will put them into a freezer bag to store until the next time I want to cook with cilantro!
The third project I completed today was making a heart stick coaster. I began by cutting out two hearts from pink card stock. Then I glued the two paper hearts together. Next I broke up a bunch of sticks, and played with their placement on the paper heart.
I started at the bottom and hot glued the sticks up as I went. i replaced and added or subtracted sticks as I went.
Once the first layer was done I added a second layer. Now I have a valentine decoration that isn't too overwhelmingly girly!
That's what I got done today! Happy DIYing!
