I got the pieces I needed in time to make these Lego heart bracelets for the kids for Valentine's Day -- I thought bracelets might be a little safer than necklaces for them at this point. The lovely woman at the local bead shop made the rather complicated slip knots for me, which means they are adjustable.
Although there's one for David and I as well as for each of the kids, David is getting this edition of Shakespeare's Love Sonnets, too, which is probably more of a present for me than for him, judging from its prettiness:
Hoping to make a version of these lego interlocking heart pendants for the kids for Valentine's Day. I wasn't able to find the curved end plates in the Pick-a-Brick section on the Lego site and they won't send these cute Valentine boxes to Canada but I think I found a seller on Amazon. I think I might make bracelets instead of necklaces, though.
For anyone who has ever used their teeth to try separate two lego bricks that are stuck together, I give you: the lego brick separator! I was only going to buy one until I saw this video. Now my mystery recipient is getting two.
