St. Patrick's Day Printable Art

I can't believe that it is almost March!!. I don't know where the time went. As February comes to an end, it's time to take down the Valentine's day decorations and pack them away for next year. Which also means it's time to dig out the decorations for the next holiday, St. Patrick's Day. I don't really have a lot of decorations for St. Patrick's Day, however I do have a couple of things for this year. First I have my favorite Shamrock in which I hang in my front window. I love this shamrock, as it is very shiny and sparkly. The base color of the shamrock is green, however when you drive by my house while the sun is shining the mini shamrocks hanging off the larger change colors. It's really pretty to look at. Next I bought some St. Patrick's Day window clings and gels, which I will put on my front and back doors. Finally, I needed something to put into my "seasonal" photo frame. Therefore, I decided to create some subway art, but wit…

Two New Additions to the Blog

I would like to introduce two new additions to I Heart Crafting, Daisy and Rex. They are our virtual pet hamsters. If you scroll down to the bottom of the blog, you will find them in their cages. Feel free to play with them, and/or feed them{click inside the cage and piece of food will appear}. They are very active little creatures and love their running wheel. My cat Misty {she is real, not} couldn't take her eyes off the screen when I came across the abowmanwebsite. So I agreed that we could adopted these little guys. :)
If you would like a virtual pet of your own, head over, and see the variety of virtual pets you can adopt.


Having a Wonderful Day!

Hello Everyone,
I did not have a post scheduled for today, however I decided to post about some great things that are happening in my life. You have most likely seen some of my color palettes and patterns that I have created on COLOURlovers. COLOURlovers is a great site, in which I am a member of a couple of groups. One of the groups is called Color Calming Creations. Color Calming Creations has a daily contest in which the group leader picks two nominees and posts some of their work {one pattern, one palette, and one color}. Then other members of the group vote on whose creations they find to be the most appealing. They can also view each nominees profile to view other work they have done. The nominee with the most votes wins. Well I am happy to say that I WAS NOMINATED FOR TODAY'S CONTEST!!! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am, as well as honored that my work is truly admired by others.

Below is the pattern, palette and color {from my list of many} that the lead…

Create Your Own Personal Puzzles with Free Puzzlemaker

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Today I would like to share with you a fun tool I discovered on Discovery Education. It is a free puzzle maker, in which you can create your own various types of puzzles. You can choose to design word searches, criss-cross, mazes, math squares, letter tiles, and more. To give you an example of what you can do with this great tool, I created a I Heart Crafting word search which you can get a glimpse of below. Also, if you enjoy word searches, here is the link to download and print out my word search I created.
