Don’t tell anyone, but my feelings about Valentine’s Day have gone back and forth between loving it and not loving it so much over the years.
When I was a kid, I loved Valentine’s Day. It meant decorating a shoe box with doily hearts and wrapping paper to collect Valentine’s at our party at school. And, it meant my parents giving me a special heart-shaped box of chocolates with a sweet card.
When I was in high school, I didn’t like the holiday so much because I was never dating anyone special on February 14. It became a day where my girlfriends and I commiserated over no boyfriend and no flowers. Boo hoo! lol
Now, I am back to loving the sweet holiday because I get to share my loving sentiments with the most special people closest to me…my husband and my kids.
It’s also fun because my daughter gets so excited and wants to decorate the whole house as if it were Christmas!
Today, I’m hoping to get you excited about Valentine’s Day with beautiful projects and crafts from some terrific blog friends of mine.
I’m happy to be a part of ‘The Sweetest Valentine Round Up” hosted by Kelly at My Soulful Home with you all!
The following projects are sure to get you feeling the love and sentiment of Valentine’s Day!
Who wouldn’t enjoy getting a beautiful love letter this Valentine’s Day? Kerryanne of Shabby Art Boutique shows us how to create this show-stopper:
I love boxwood wreaths, and this easy DIY heart boxwood wreath from Laura at Top This Top That is perfect!
Kelly, at My Soulful Home, sure knows how to make a beautiful re-purposed gift! I love these lavender bath salts made from used bottles!
Hugs and kisses are so sweet for Valentine’s Day and I absolutely adore these pillows from Rachel at Maison de Pax!
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s Day without chocolate and Yvonne at Stone Gable has outdone herself with these decadent treats!
Finally, I made a quick and easy little craft to help decorate our home for the holiday by re-purposing old buttons. It’s my Valentine button heart art!
I don’t mean to gush, but I think my blog friends are SO creative and talented!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more Valentine’s Day inspiration.
