Candy Cane Valentine Wall Decor Handmade Repurposed Upcycled at LilacsNDreams. Welcome to Everyone visiting today!
I’ve been getting things in order that I can easily grab things to sit down, and craft with. Some days I’m slower than others because I have a problem of looking at an item, staring at it, picturing what I want to do, thinking of other things I have that I can use with it, and so on. Needless to say I do that more than I should, and it becomes time consuming because time just slips by when I do that. I’m guilty of that, but I so enjoy doing it too. I know time slips away, but for me it is fun and relaxing to do this too.
Below you will see a picture of a Valentine craft project I am working on. It is not fully completed. I have not glued pieces together quite yet because I’m not settled with it being completed. I feel I want to do something around the truck, maybe some kind of cloth or doily underneath it, something that I’m not settled on yet. Once I am I will glue it together, and add some kind of hanger to it as this will be a wall hanging I am making. I am using the plastic christmas candy canes that use to be in the Dollar Tree during the holidays. I got the truck from Dollar General. I really enjoy being able to use some holiday items for any project it can fit into making it more of a universal item.

Repurpose Upcycle Handmade DIY Valentines Decor at LilacsNDreams.
Welcome Everyone, happy to see you! I don’t know about you, but this time of January, time of the month, time of year just seems to be a little blah don’t you think? With all the rush for the Christmas season, and now things are slowing down a bit to breathe. About this time it usually hits me like this every year. I am looking at different craft projects I could be working on, but my mood isn’t quite there. So, I look at things, see what others are doing and sharing, and make some mental notes of things to do.
First of all I guess I should finish removing the rest of the Christmas decorations, and putting things away. That’s something I usually don’t rush. By the end of the month it will be done though. Pretty much same thing every year.
Before Christmas was over I was seeing things in the stores for Valentines Day. For that I do wait till after Christmas to deal with any crafty projects I want to do. I wanted Christmas to be Christmas. Also. I’m not one who makes a whole lot for this holiday. I bought an item to go with a small project I want to do for this time. Maybe this week I will get to it so I can share with everyone on the next visit. Wish me luck.
So, not a whole lot for me to report, or really discuss this time. Sorry about that everyone. I’ll try to be better prepared for your next visit. Thanks so much for stopping by, and visiting with LilacsNDreams! Be safe, and take care till the next time everyone. Toodles . . . .

Pointsettia Christmas Tree and Elf Candy Cane Ladder Handmade with LilacsNDreams! Welcome to all who visit!
Last time I was here I showed a couple of things I was working on for Christmas. I noted I would show you finished projects. See pictures below here for that. With the Elf Candy Cane Ladder I added another elf sitting. So, instead of 2 elves on the ladder I ended up with 3 on it. The Pointsettia Tree was fun to make, and is unique I think. I have it sitting in a little metal christmas pail I had found at Walmart. Next year I think I will redo around the bottom of the tree since it looks a little too busy. Fun part with these projects is that I can always decorate in other ways since I did not glue any of the extra figures, and things I decorated with.
