I hope everyone can be surrounded by the people they love most today.. and if not, well then at least surround yourself with the things you love most (that would mean coffee, bacon and ice cream in my case!) And if you aren't a Valentine's Day fan.. remember Saturday will be wonderful for a totally different reason:
This year we made two types of school Valentines. For my 2nd grader, who is obsessed with Frozen, we did build your own snowmen:
For my preschooler, whose school has a 'no candy' rule we used old puzzles to create these cute little
"I'd fall to Pieces" cards:
This year's mantle still makes me smile when I see it. It could be the fond memories of drinking the Frappucinos in order to get the little bottles..
Or maybe remembering what it felt like to punch out 300+ vellum hearts to make the garland, and just being thankful that it is over:
On the flip side, this wreath was my slacker project of 2014. I still think it came out pretty cute considering the lack of effort required:
I also rounded up some additional Valentine's Day ideas from past years here. In case you haven't had your fill yet!
So what is next? I think St. Patty's day. Whew.. where is the year going?!
