May Your Life Be Like A Basket...Useful...Bountiful...Beautiful...

Basketmaster's Weavings is about my passions, much of which revolves around basket weaving. I weave with reed and I love teaching others to weave. Many of the patterns and styles that I show in the blog are geared to the beginning weaver, or even the brand new weaver. If you have been thinking about wanting to learn to weave, then this blog is for you. Throughout the blog and videos I take you step by step through each and every process of weaving. I want you to be successful in weaving the very first time you try. For the intermediate and advanced weaver, my wish is that you take ideas that I show, mix them up a bit, and incorporate them into your own beautiful creations.

Happy Weaving and Baskets of Blessings to all my visitors,

Nancy

A Little Valentine's Day Bling


I'm in a paper crafting mood here and created this fun banner for Valentine's day.  I used my Cricut machine and cut the hearts out using the Doodlecharms cartridge and the letters using the Printing 101 cartridge.  It makes for an entrance into my kitchen that makes me smile.
Enjoy!

It's adorable! Is it pronounced "cricket" or cry-cut? I'm not sure.

I don't usually decorate for holidays other than Christmas but am thinking it would be fun to do something for Valentine's Day this year.

Thank you for linking up today! However, you forgot to give the courtesy link back to my blog and mention the words "Making Your Home Sing Monday" in your post.

There is a link to the instructions on my meme post if you'd like to read them and thanks again for linking up.
