Valentine's Day Kick Start

Happy Monday everyone!

Did you have a good weekend? It was a busy weekend around here. We booked our trip down south with another family that we love. Woot! Woot!! Our big guy had his first ski lesson and I officially signed up for the Ottawa marathon in May. I love to run. Love it! I'm not a fast runner but there is something about the challenge of a good run that makes my soul sing. This will be my 4th marathon and start training in a couple of weeks. Gulp! Gulp! Gulp!

Did you know it's almost a month before Valentine's Day? It might be a cheesy-love-struck-day but! This is our big guy at the age of 2 bringing home some flowers.  Melt my heart!

So, here's a little craft that you can do for your Valentine or mini Valentine's this year. I did these last February for my boys and need to make another one for my baby girl. During the Valentine's week I put a little love note in their pouch before they come down for breaky.

These are so easy to do, it doesn't even need play-by-play photos. I actually 'hacked' the idea from Pottery Barn. Here's Pottery Barn's...

And here's mine..all supplies are from the dollar store. Most definitely less expensive the PB's. Sorry about the purple heart in the middle of the photo. Just wanted to give my kiddies' names some privacy.

I just glued up the sides of the foam, cut a triangle for the flap, hot glued the ribbon for the trim and added a few hearts for the opening.

A fresh.fabulous.sophisticated Valentine's day craft that is easy, inexpensive and can kick start your Valentine's Day d├ęcor.

Keep it Beautiful.
