I love this sculpture in New York City by Robert Indiana.  It was kind of my inspiration in a way for my newest Valentine's Day decoration.

This was so super-duper-simple! 

All you do is take these cardboard letters and paint them. 

I used hot glue to secure them together and voila!  Valentine's Day Sculpture Decor!

SYTYC Spotlight Saturday!

Every Saturday I'm going to feature a fellow SoYouThinkYou'reCrafty contestant from Season 5 - check out their blogs!

Heidi @ Made by Heidi

Hi! I’m Heidi and I happen to LOVE crafting. Seriously, it’s my Achilles heel… I love photography, paper crafts, sewing, knitting, crocheting, etc. I’m originally from Utah but have lived on the east coast for almost 8 years. My husband and I met and married in Utah, moved to Manhattan in 2003 and lived there until my husband decided to go back to school. We have 2 little girls and they happen to be the best things that have ever happened to me. I’m so excited that we will be graduating next year! Crafting on a student budget (no money!) has been difficult but it’s also forced me to think outside of the box in terms of what I can create. Don’t get me wrong, it will be great to have money again! :)   So excited for this season! Thanks! Heidi blogs at Made by Heidi
