Where did the weekend go? How is it Monday already?! It was the first week of Winterlude here in Ottawa where the canal is freshly groomed, the snow slides are slick and it's an Ottawa party. Goodtimes. If you've never been, you must try to get to it sometime. Winterlude is always the first three weeks in Feb. 

I did get in a little V-day decorating...

I don't usually do much except give the mantle a little shake up. The kids love it and why not spread the love? I used the red dogwood branches I had from Christmas and picked up this garland and rose balls at the dollar store. Honestly, it can't get much easier.

Did any of you make the door hearts I shared on the weekend? Easy peasy. You can also make a "love box". Again, it's easy, inexpensive and the kids adore it. Think I'll add a small little prezzie in there for Mr. Fix-it too. Warm hearts is what Valentine's Day is all about. Oh and heart shaped pizzas. Cute!

Keep it Beautiful.

Hi guys, I don't normally do a Saturday post but wanted to get this one out to you in case you wanted to think about it over the weekend. Who doesn't love getting a Valentine's Day card? Remember when you were kids and hoped for a love note from your crush? While I don't have DIY Valentine's for you, I do have a cute idea to do for your mini Valentine's at home.

Door hearts are so easy and your Valentine's will love it. All you need is construction paper, markers and tape. Every day, write something you love about your little valentine, or something they are good at. Each day they can look at their door and see all the messages of love just for them. Easy, cute and spreads the love.

I went to the dollar store and bought a pack of construction paper and while I was watching tv one night, I cut out hearts for each of my kids and wrote the messages. 

You can do as many as you want really, whether you start now or a few days from now. Each night before you go to bed, just stick a new heart on their door for when they wake up. You'll make their hearts smile :)

Do you decorate for Valentine's Day? I like to add a few touches here and there so I'll show you my V-day mantle on Monday.
Keep it Beautiful.
