Project 52 | Week 2 | 1.21.11

This week’s theme was “Shades of Red”. I returned from 5 days out of town late yesterday and thought, what in the world am I going to do with this. Red reminds me of Valentine’s Day…which is one of my very favorite holidays because my older daughter was born on February 15th. I spent Valentine’s Day, 2001, in the hospital. So her birthday parties are always a theme tied to red or hearts..and I have all sorts of Valentine’s decor. I gathered up what I had and arranged it all and here is what we have:

From top:
A heart trio that sometimes decorates my front door
Another decorative heart
Heart drawing by my youngest
2 foam hearts made by my girls
Picture I took of them 2 years ago and made cards out of
“Love” doorhanger
Various foam pieces from earlier craft projects
A small strand of crepe paper from my oldest’s birthday party last year
All on a red fleece blanket which came from the dog crate

And voila! Shades of Red, people.
To see the next photographer and her images of red…check out The Ranchers Wife, Kate!
