Valentine’s Day is without a doubt one of my favorite days of the year. Perhaps because it also happens to be my birthday.
This 21st birthday I found myself showered with a week of love and Valentine’s joy – from card making and an a ccapella group serenade to dinner and a Valentine-themed formal. Here are a few of my favorite moments from the week:
Because even when I’m sitting and talking, I can usually find a way to turn my nervous energy into something pretty.
Whenever I wander around – whether I’m shopping or just out, I take photos of the cute things that catch my eye. “The Little Things” is a series of postings with these pictures of little things: miniature things, little kids things and the little things in life. Enjoy! -Casey K

I decided (as an active camp counselor at Camp Kesem) to give it a try creating them myself.
I started with four regular friendship bracelets and a table full of old or broken jewelry:
I began by selecting bracelets and jewels to attach to each one and used a needle and thread to connect the pieces together.
The finished product came out very pretty (and are far more affordable than the one’s at Bendel’s)!
When I have extra time on my hands, I love to get crafty – especially when the finished product is something I can wear. I started these shoes with an old pair that was in my mom’s closet.
Then added, googly eyes, a button nose and metal wire for the whiskers. (And re-bent the leather straps to create some ears).
