Happy Valentine's Day!

I thought it would be fun today to share a post dedicated to some of our most favorite Valentine's Day decorations and crafts that we've made and shared here. Here we go...

Celery Stamp Roses! I still remember the look on my kids faces when we tried this little experiment of ours. It worked so well and was SO much fun!

My Quilted Heart Throw Pillow, you can find the tutorial for this project right here.

Our Heart Felt Garland. I made three of these, they were so much fun! This project was inspired by the amazing Betz White!

My son Jacob and I made these bakers twine pom poms together last year. A pompom first for the both of us!

Our Warm Hearts. The tutorial for these is available right here. My kiddos still have them and occasionally will ask me to heat them up in the microwave.
