I spent the past week getting all my Valentines crafting done.
Kennady got a new V-Day shirt.
I saw this fabulous idea for mason jars on Pinterest and had to “borrow” it.
The garland is made out of old book pages. My kids were astonished that I would do such a thing to a book (the school librarian has obviously been effective when teaching about how we should treat books), but it was really old and falling apart anyway. I have to admit that I cringed a little bit when I started cutting out the first page.
Finally, I made a felt “Be My Valentine” pillow. The hearts are machine appliqued on and the wording and string for the hearts to hang on are embroidered. I have never done much work in embroidery before and this project made me realize that I could really use some practice.
I think we are all ready to show some love around here, that is if my kids would ever stop fighting.
