Despite the cold and hot sweats, I managed to get a few Valentine's Day crafty projects done. For some reason, this year I heart Valentine's Day more than any other year. So here are a few of my projects that I've been working on.
Be Mine Banner
Heart Felt Wreath
Inspired by eighteen25
I have to admit, I cheated and did not cut all the felt circles. I purchased them on etsy from The Fairy Felt Mother. So worth it!!!
Valentine Day Countdown
Chalkboard Heart - Mothology
I made two versions, wasn't sure if the pink or red would show up better. Chris and Grace liked the red version the best - after I straightened out "countdown" on the bottom of the heart! Getting that vinyl straight sure can be tricky! Good thing it's not permanent!
Teacher XOXO Treat Jars
Using my Silhouette, I cut out the XOXO and heart. It's hard to see from the picture, but I filled the jars with pink caramel filled Kisses and tied a pink ribbon around the jar. They are super cute in person!
Personalized XOXO Valentine's Mailboxes
inspired by How Does She?
I saw these mailboxes in the Target Dollar Aisle on several trips to Target and pondered what I could do with them. They were too cute, but I wasn't sold on them until I saw Alison's idea over on How Does She?. I had to make one for all of us and my adorable nieces and nephew!
Valentine's Day Treats
I'm not going to admit where I purchased the gumball dispensers because my union brothers and sisters will de-friend me. But sometimes, a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do! The reason I started off this post with over sharing out our bout with the flu is because the flu is what caused me to step into that anti-worker rights store. My husband was in dire need of Gatorade and that was the only place I could get to at the time. And low and behold, I found myself in the Valentine's aisle and stumbled across these uber-cute gumball dispensers. I just couldn't pass them up - even if it meant I was violating worker's rights by spending my money in that place. I've since gone to confession and we are all good :)
So that's my Valentine's Day round-up. I've decided that I'm going to surprise the fam with a Valentine's Day breakfast/sweets table next Sunday. But first things first, time to prepare for the Packer's Super Bowl victory this Sunday. Stay warm and well!
