And now for mine.

DIY Photo Pillow Heart Prop! 
 It's really really easy. Like easier than I could handle, so I got distracted and played with the little. A lot. She's getting huge! We celebrated her 1st birthday last week. I still can't believe it. And there I go again, all distracted.
 The first thing you will do is lay out some fabric and then fold it back on itself so that there are four layers of fabric, with the main fold at the bottom, and the fold you made at the side. 
 Then you are going to go back to elementary school and cut a heart. Just like they showed you. Remember? 
 So when you unfold it, you have a perfectly symmetrical heart, and two layers at that. 
 Pin right sides together and then sew along the edges. Leave a small opening. 
 Stuff! I used about a large bag of Poly fill, the heart I made is nearly three feet across. 
 Fill it so it looks nice, and then hand sew the little opening. Pretty simple. 
And voila, a nice heart pillow. Really this part is super easy, now you get to do the fun part. 

Take pictures of your littles on it! For those who are more into photography, you will have seen things similar to these in a lot of newborn photos this year, so now you can make your own! And if you're not so much, how cute will this HUGE heart pillow be on a little girls bed? Just saying....

And! Have you seen the homemade valentine cards going around? Like this? 
Ok, they aren't JUST like this, but its all the rage to do something in a scrapbooking program or photoshop and use those as their valentine to pass around. Obviously my little is well, too little. So I made them for you. :) (Files are formatted to 4x6)

the pillow looks awesome, but I have to say it's kind of my second favorite thing in the post- of course the first favorite thing would be that sweet little of yours! She's gorgeous. :)

What a great idea for a photo prop, or even just for a fun floor pillow for kids to sit on.

This is the perfect tv watching comfort for a little. Love the idea!
