Embracing V-Day

In years past, I haven't thought much of Valentine's Day.  It's commercialized, and I feel like I've said this before, but KT says "Every day is like Valentine's Day when you live with him."  He has a mighty big ego, but that's probably what drew me to him...all that magnetism.  Last month, in my January Funk, I decided to Embrace Valentine's Day.  I have absolutely no decorations for this holiday, but I ignited my craftier side that lays dormant more often than not.  This is what I have been doing to make my home more cheery, and LOVEly.

I downloaded this printable and strung it on jute across my fireplace.  I wish I could reference where I got it, but I can't find it in my feed anywhere.  I usually like to give credit where credit is due, so if you know who created and posted this printable, please let me know.


I downloaded this cute printable from Simple as That, and decided to make a heart bouquet.  I had everything to do it, cost was $0


Then I decided to make some Valentine slip covers for a couple of throw pillows.  I already had the pillow forms so the fabric at 40% off was my only cost.  I found the directions for a novice seamstress here.


Be assured that I will not be decorating for St. Patrick's Day.  I find little leprechauns to be quite creepy.

  1. How cute are all those projects! When my kids were little, every holiday was a chance to create a little magic in the home. I've gotten so lazy lately. Valentine's is also the SU (Spousal Unit) birthday, so most of our attention goes that direction. :)
