At first she thought it was too hard but began to get the hang of it. We split the project up into three days so it wasn't too daunting. Towards the end of the project she wanted to sew on the shoes so I let her. Moments later she broke down crying that it was too hard and it was so easy for me. This was one of those moments where I had to choose my words wisely. I explained that I've been sewing most of my life and she's just starting to learn. I also pointed out how nice her stitches looked. I would like to think that she felt encouraged.
Our projects don't always go as planned but they're time well spent.

I had planned on sharing this book with all of you in the beginning of the new year but time escaped me. And as the book states, it's never too late so here goes...
A few months ago I was asked if I would share It's Never Too Late on Zakka Life. Even though this is not a craft book, I said yes because Dallas Clayton books are all about inspiring people. What I enjoy about author Clayton is that his positive, seize the day spirit always shines through in his writing.
If I were to buy this book, I would give it as a gift for someone going through a new phase in their life that needed a little encouragement.

In the past six years of blogging, I've been sharing all my Valentine projects with you. And since I've built up quite the collection, I thought I would share some of my favorites. Enjoy.

This template was created to be printed on 8 1/2 x 11 card stock. Click on the image, right click, copy and paste into a document such as word. You may have to re-size it to fit. Print. Cut out cards.
I printed the valentines on card stock. I also wrote the answers on the back of the valentines. You could also tape a piece of candy over the answer so the recipient doesn't see the answer right away.
