Valentine's Day Craft Ideas Sewing Heart

This project is a great way to use up scrap paper.  I used paper from my scraps for this entire project.

I got this idea off Facebook.  I don't know who came up with it.  

A large pink bow with white flower is on the side of the heart.

This would be a great gift for a person who likes to sew.

I used different shades of pink to make my card.  

This is the inspiration for my card.  I don't know who created it.
I saw it on Crafts Workshop on Facebook.

Valentine's Day Treat Cards with Gold Coins

These are gold coins I found at my local Dollar Tree.  They really stand out from the red card.

Inside the card, you can write who it is to and who it is from

This is great for Valentine's Day and you can use any kind of candy that will fit inside the heart.

The Lord is My Shepherd Psalms 23

This is a little cartoon I made of my favorite verse in the Bible which is Psalms 23.  My mother made me learn it many years ago and I am glad she did that.

Psalm 23 King James Version (KJV)

23 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Chan's Bio

My subscribers have been asking questions about me and I'm surely not one for talking about myself so I will write this blog post instead.

About four years ago, I decided to go back to making arts and crafts and I created a YouTube channel. YouTube has been a blessing to me.  I can share my creations with my friends.  I am inspired daily by what I see on YouTube.

YouTube was also a lifeline for me.  When my mother died last year, I almost quit my YouTube channel.  My mother was the inspiration for me to create.  I used to ask her what she thought of what I made.  After her death, it was hard for me and I fell into a deep depression.  In fact, I didn't create any videos for about three months.  I was going to give up my YouTube channel.  My YouTube friends kept asking me to upload videos and that helped to bring me out of my depression.

I think everyone has a purpose in life.  I haven't figured out my purpose yet.  Hopefully, the way will become clear and I will see what it is.  Until then, I will keep uploading craft videos.

Happy Crafting and God bless, Chan
