So here is my new mantel all decked out for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine's Day Mantel

At the top is this heart, that I made a couple years ago and I still love it!

My Ruffly Heart

For a month this mailbox sits out and we all write love notes to each other or draw pictures or whatever and then on V-Day we’ll open them all together.

My banner made from old book pages, some embroidery thread, patterned paper and my Silhouette.
The papers I used were:
Webster’s Pages ting-a-lin Collection “Candied Apples”
Echo Park Paper Dots & Stripes Ruby Red Large Dot
Little Yellow Bicycle Elizabeth Park Lacy-Lattice Grey
Simple Stories 100 Days of Summer Endless Summer
the girl’s paperie by Margie kitch
V-Day Banner

For FHE we talked about Charity and how this time of year is a great time to think of things and people we love. So we made hearts (Lucy cut most of them out) and we all wrote on things and people we love. We do this every year and it always makes me smile the things the kids write.
HeartsAre you decorating for Valentine’s day??
