Me and my guns... and a V-day craft :)

Watch out!
(Don't mess with me!)
My sweet husband took most of the week off for my b-day, and while we had some time to kill together, he took me out to the shooting range after purchasing a new little gun that he says is "for me"...yeah right. I did really like it though! I have only ever shot once or twice before, so I'm no pro (although I think I've got pretty good aim!) but when I pulled out my GLUE GUN today I knew I could handle it :) Most importantly...for my b-day he got me a Silhouette! I'm SO excited! My birthday wish came true, which is why last week I didn't do much in the way of crafts, hoping that if I held off I would have an extra special "helper". Here is my first project using my Silhouette, my glue gun, and these *flexing biceps* guns! ( I couldn't help myself, I'm sorry) ;)
*NOTICE-my "be mine" blocks? I made a new saying out of these blocks!*
A couple weeks back I found this really cute Valentine's Day Countdown at Katie's Nesting Spot that I wanted to try for myself, I used my Silhouette to cut the numbers (from fabric) out after I used heat n' bond on them. worked like a charm! Apparently Silhouette just came out with a new product to use for cutting fabric, but I did it without the new product and it worked!
I'd still like to embellish it a little, but here's the basic idea. Each numbered heart is a little pocket that I can put a note, activity or treat in for my kids to make the anticipation of V-day a little more fun.
I think I'm in LOVE (no pun intended, well....maybe?) with the Silhouette! Of course you could do this project with a Cricut or no machine at all by just cutting out your numbers :)
