diy | heart stamp

i browsed all over pinterest for a diy heart stamp because madison wanted one for valentine's day and to make valentine's for her friends in school. i found nothing. i really didn't want to spend the money on one because stamps can be pricey at michael's or joann's and then i remembered making stamps as a child. did any of you make stamps out of erasers before? i remember doing it all the time so i thought i'd make one :) peanut is gonna love it. the heart's are not perfect & thats why i love it. just in time for valentine's day. 

 i love you madison.

i have been very absent from my blog so far this year. ok, it's only been six days but i apologize for that. i have been out of town. let's see...pa to nc, nc back to pa, pa back to nc, to virginia, wrong turn to dc, and finally back home to pa. confused? you should be. lot's has been going on in our home. anyways, excited to share this. while i was in nc visiting my family, i got to spend a few quiet days with my husband, my daughter, and my niece before christmas (i know, i am just now posting this?) but anyways, it was wonderful seeing these two precious girls together who love each other so much. one night while husband was reading to the girls & little did i know it would make cute wall art. so i wanted to share these few photos. i sure do miss seeing them together. their laughing under the covers was contagious. i also thought i'd share some of the out-takes and candid shots because these girls are just too cute and i just love that husband of mine. have a wonderful weekend!
