THICK & THIN WOODEN VALENTINE HEART

I would love to have a renovation update for you, but I don't.  Not because things aren't getting done, because they are, but slowly.  The weather is not my friend.  It's beyond frustrating.  Suzan at Simply Vintageous...by Suzan was giving me a little grief about not making a ton of Valentine crafts like I usually do, so I decided to make something yesterday instead of being all frustrated.  Suzan loves hearts, so ....
A couple of years ago I found some ugly wooden hearts.  Somewhere in my computer there is a picture of them, but I'm too lazy to search for it.  I primed them with white spray primer and then they sat around for a year.  I outlined the heart with black marker.
Some black and white washi tape was the perfect width for covering the edges.

Since I don't have a silhouette and because I wanted to finish this craft in like 20 minutes, I opted for some "rub on" words.  Too easy.
"Thick and Thin"....yep, that pretty much describes our 20 plus years of marriage for sure.
I found a cute little stick on dot just to give it some 3-D-ness.  Gave about 30 seconds thought to adding some more bling and voted no.  
I stuck it up on a little shelf in my black and white bedroom.  Which reminds me...I never posted more about my black and white bedroom.  Oh well.  Now it has a black and white heart that reminds me that Valentines Day is really all about loving someone through thick and thin.

  8. That is so cute! And you are so funny! I still find washi tape to be quite elusive. Is that what it's actually called or is there some other name for it? I swear I've never seen it. I've seen some fun duct tapes, but that it. I've also never seen rub-on words. Sometimes I wonder if I live on a different planet than everyone else.

  16. I must admit, when I first saw this I was thinking if I was in a relationship I'd be the thick one (a reference to my ever expanding waistline) , but then I realised you meant 'through thick and thin' and I think it's a beautifully subtle reference to Valentines, and how clever are you to just whip up another crafty delight !

  18. How true are those words!!! You do it every time, make it look easy as pie. I would love to see your black and white bedroom, the vignette alone is very chic, maybe we'll get the reveal in your new place??

  20. Adorable Dani! And I have to agree with Andi...why in the world don't craft stores carry Washi?! I've only seen it once at Michaels, otherwise it has to be ordered on line. I asked for it at Joanne's and they looked at me like I was crazy. Geez....

  21. Oh, Danni, you are so smart! This looks so cute, and quick and easy, too. Great job. Plus, I love me some rub on letters, too easy!
