I {Heart} Glasses


This may be the fastest little project I’ve ever done, for such cutie results.  I like my little Valentine’s glasses, but really, I’m just proud that I was able to get some halfway decent shots of J wearing them.  This would be before he ripped them off his head and twisted them into an unrecognizable pile of pipe cleaner wreakage.  Still, I got enough to show off my little man!

Anyways, if you’d like your own, grab two red pipe cleaners, twist them together with a small overlap, and form some heart frames.  The two pipe cleaners was barely enough to make these glasses large enough for a toddler, so if you’d like to wear them yourself, you may need to use a couple more pipe cleaners.

Give it a shot!  Maybe use them as party favors or just silly little photo props at your Valentine’s Day get-together!

In other news, I think J is finally starting to understand that he should look at the camera and pose when I’m trying to take some pictures.  But I think he also does it so he can look at himself in the viewer afterwards to check that his hair looked ok.  Here’s some of his wacky “poses”.  They were all followed by “See picture! Mommy, J see picture!”

  1. […] I {Heart} Glasses | Crochet Rug from Repurposed T-Shirts | Kitchen Reno with IKEA Cabinets What made you start your blog, and how long have you been blogging? I started my blog at the end of 2011 because a friend of mine started blogging about baking cakes and I figured I could do it too, just not with cakes! I did a little research before I started and read about how daunting it could be and how much pressure it could be to post several times a week, and just kinda went “ehh, sure”, disregarded all the advice, and just went for it. Mistake? I’ve thought so at times, but today, it feels pretty good! Share one of your most embarrassing moments (that you can look back on and laugh)! I don’t remember any instances of public humiliation, possibly because I wipe such things from my mind, so here’s just a couple of mildly embarrassing moments that come to mind: 1. I wore a white satin qipao (china dress) for my wedding reception, and had forgotten that my “something blue” was well, underneath and not meant to be seen. Under my fluff of my western wedding dress, it wasn’t seen, but I realized afterwards that if I stood under certain lighting or leaned over, the bright aqua blue showed through my satin china dress. Whoops. 2. This just happened recently, so I was heavily pregnant, and no offense to anyone with a large family. I was having lunch with several of my colleagues when I was told that a mutual acquaintance was thought to want 5-6 kids. I’m not sure what made me open my mouth, but I just blurted out “Yikes, that makes me want to close my legs, except I can’t close my legs right now”. Um, yeah, 2 seconds later I realized that was probably not appropriate considering my husband was right there, as were a few male colleagues. Whoops again…me and my big mouth, where did my filter go – apparently wherever my pregnant brain went. If you could travel to anywhere in the world for vacation, where would you go and what would you love to do there? I’d go to Paris. And eat. Or maybe Tokyo. And eat. If I were on a budget, I’d go to Maine. And eat lobster for every meal. […]
