Happy Valentines Day!!

Happy Valentines Day from Crafty Sisters!
Had to share the very very last moment Valentines we hurried to throw together last night.
Of course we had to follow our tradition of pictures with pets and these kitties were such good sports wearing their pretty dresses again.:)

I let my daughter add some scraps of paper and sticker her heart away this year.
I love how easy Picasa is to use to add text to pictures.  Valentines are easy to make this way!

We hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day!

Ottomans Part Three!

Remember these beauties Candace recovered a few years ago?

Well 4 boys later.....she was ready to toss them in her house purge she did over Christmas.
Of course I was more than happy to be her charitable recipient.

I found some really cute and super thick quality upholstrey material at Home Fabrics for about $20.  It's a gorgeous houndstooth pattern that is almost a taupe/dark grey color on a creamy white.  An hour later I now have these!
I didn't try to make a pattern from her old material~I just measured each of the sides so every thing would be a crisp square.

One thing I did do was seam around a square piece to cover the bottom.  I hate that black cloth that most furniture pieces have on the bottom~besides where do you find that stuff and why does it rip so easy?
This was super easy and makes the ottomans look even more finished.

What do you think?
Now if they survive these two kittens.....that's another story.  
Yes, I'm feeling like an animal hoarder.  This is what happens when your daughter baby sits the neighbors cat who also happens to be pregnant....and then she baby sits the was bound to happen.  They were her birthday present and I told her "these are the last pets we will ever have while she lives under our roof."  And yes, those are Build A Bear outfits~they fit little real kitties too!
