Here are some DIY: Valentine's Day Decor and Gift ideas that I recently made, (many inspired by pins on Pinterest and I made them my own). :) (I misplaced my DSLR's battery charger, so I am using my old camera. bummer.)
LOVE canvas using Annie's hand and feet. I saw this on Pinterest, but came up with using a Valentine's color scheme ombre effect on my own. :) (shown with and without flash)
I know we all love the Family Conversation Heart craft pin! Here is my spin on it:
Large Pinterest inspired Valentine :
on the inside I included the "mail a hug" with this "poem":
We are separated by miles,
and missing you on my heart does tug!
I thought of a way to make you smile,
by sending you this Valentine's Hug!
Quick detour: while running around in between all of this, Annie asked me to take her picture! :)
Ok, back to Valentine's Day...
I found this mailbox at Hobby Lobby and decided that we, (Daddy, Mommy and Annie) would send each other little love notes throughout February, (obviously Annie's involvement will start next year). ;) I allowed Annie to help me decorate the mailbox, and it was a great decision- I love it!
another quick detour to show Annie getting her paint on:
we were watching Full House and she had to stop to sing the theme song- she loves music!
Back to Valentine's Day:
I made these as chair covers, but I didn't like them on the chairs, so I put them here
then I sent two other banners to Annie's grandma and aunt :)
I used felt and my glue gun and made heart table decor:
Annie loves flowers-especially roses :)
I left a hole in the table runner for her vase to fit :)
Heart place mats:
I had this sign, (did not make it lol) and decided to decorate the back:
Check back here the day after Valentine's Day for our V-day food and activities. :)
