valentines valentines Valentine's Day is coming up fast! This year as part of my (unofficial) New Year's resolutions, I am trying to take advantage of the holidays that I love, and make time to craft and celebrate them. I have always loved Valentine's Day, even when I went through a stage of my life where I acted like I was indifferent to it. Even if you don't have a sweetheart to share this particular holiday with, it can still be fun! I have lots of great memories when I was a little girl, making and sending out cards to friends and family. Mom would make a heart mailbox, either out of a used Cheerios box or a cardboard oatmeal canister. All of my family would write valentines throughout the season and drop them in the mailbox. On Valentine's Day we got to open the (overflowing) mailbox and read our cards. Mom would usually pick up those boxed cutout valentine cards for us from the grocery store. I loved the Charlie Brown ones! I'm not sure if you can get those anymore, but I found some cute more grown-up valentines at the Victorian Trading Co. This year I vow my Valentine cards won't be mailed at the last minute! How about you? Do you celebrate Valentine's Day? Any fun traditions or crafts you like to do around this season? ♥

P.S. Some fun Valentine's Day ideas that may help you get inspired to do some holiday crafting or baking!

  2. Those glitter hearts look like such fun to make! I like the idea of creating crafts around a particular holiday because I tend to become lazy when it comes to crafting on a constant.

    PS: I have those rose stickers and it's so hard to use them!
