Cheapest & Fastest Valentines Day Decor

This is seriously one of the cheapest and cutest as well as easiest Valentine decor ideas.
I sent $3.00 total.
$2 for the 2 packages of heart picks found at the dollar tree!
Then in the dollar section of Target I found these adorable ceramic vases!
There were different versions too, like I ♥ U and I love you one word on each vase.
But I got the Live Laugh Love ones, because I figured that they could be 
through out the year!

Just find a cute spot for them and add your heart picks! 

I just love how they look.. so simple, cheap and easy... gotta love that!
And they really add such a sweet touch!

I think Im gonna have to go back to Target and get more of these little vases, 
they just make me smile!! 
What do you think?

Love the glittery hearts ♥♥

Ive had so many Valentine decor ideas swimming around in my head.. 
unfortunately these are all Ive put into action. But Im still happy with them. :)

Hope your week is going well!!

Blog Help, PLEASE!

Ive mentioned int before that I started a new blog Mommy Made well, Im finally starting to post on it. And I decided to follow that blog yesterday... yes a follower of my own blog! LOL Because its not my main blog (Agape Love is) So I wanted to be able to see Mommy Made in my dashboard, and see how the post show up and such.
Well after I finished my newest post. I went to my dashboard to check for it... and NOTHING! I couldnt find my post! What the freak?
So I scroll down to find Mommy Made in the list of blogs Im following, I find it and click on it expecting it to show all the posts Ive done... and none of them showed up! Instead this is what came up:
You have followed this URL, but we couldn't find a feed for it. Please check that the URL is correct:
Well when I click on link it goes right to my blog. The blog is fine, the link is fine.
I tried to search for answers through google.. but couldnt understand anything that I found. One said something about the header code maybe blocking the feed.. it suggested I make sure it had a specific code in the html.. well I did that and the correct code was there. Then one site said something about checking that the feed is live or what not, or making sure my blog wasnt on private, and to check my settings and I did all those things. The feed is correct and live... my blog isnt private. 
So now I am just at a loss as to what is wrong. And its been bothering me, because chances are if its not showing up in my dashboard feed of blogs im following, then its prolly not showing up in anyone else's that follow me! :( And thats no good for a blog! Especially a brand new baby blog, that wants to get out there! LOL So since I cant figure it out on my own, Im hoping some one else might have experience or advice with this! Idk what else I can do! I'd love any help or info I can get to try and fix this problem, if you know anything or anyone who could help! 
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this and help if you can. :)

Rhinestone and Sequin Butterfly Hair Clip Tutorial

Tonight is the father daughter dance. Kiah was soo very excited, she always LOVES going to these and getting dressed up! She gets to go on a date with daddy, he takes her to dinner before the dance and everything.  I always do her hair and we find a pretty dress, and I "do her makeup". She feels like a princess.. and she looks like one too! 
Well of course I just had to make her a special hair clip to match her dress!
it was inspired by this post, (that I saw on be different act normal) to use the sequin string.
And Im going to share with you the tutorial.

sequin string
rhinestone string
multi tool
Hot glue gun
alligator clip or headband
I traced my shape onto cardstock paper, to use as a template. 
Only because I didnt want to get pen onto the felt.
But you can also draw right on the felt.

Cut out your felt shape.

 Use your glue gun to trace around the edge of your shape, and add the sequins as you go.

pretty much just keep going around and around...
until its all filled in.

I used the multi tool to cut the rhinestone strings to the length I needed.

 Used the hot glue gun again to glue the rhinestones.
Originally I was going to leave it like this, but felt something was missing.

 So I added one more line of rhinestones. 

Now you just add your alligator clip!

Here She is all ready for the dance! :)

My beautiful daughter Kiah. :)

haha they HAD to do the Zoolander Face!

Practicing their amazing dance moves!

Father Daughter Dance 2011. :) Arent they just precious! 

I am excited for the day when my little boys are finally in school, and I can enjoy a date night with my little men! :) I think this is such a fun and good thing. I dont remember having these kinda dances when I was a kid! What about you?
Do you have little girls who love father daughter dances? :)

Hope you all have an amazing weekend!
