Oh Goodness - haven't even gotten my Christmas stuff packed away and it's already time to move on to the next holiday... well I did have an idea that I could use some help with as well... The gift is  for my hubby and I wanted to have it done for Christmas but had a hard time completing it so it's on hold for Valentine's. (Or our anniversary is coming up too.) The idea is to tell him I love him 365 days of the year by having a jar with 365 slips of paper, each containing a little note about something I love about him, a loving little quote or a short little romantic poem. The idea is for him to pick out 1 slip of paper each day for a year.

I was able to get about half of the quotes/poems I need, I did an internet search for love/romantic quotes & poems & I've taken what I could from there, I'm now on to copying verses from greeting cards to add to the mix, but if anyone has other ideas or resources for a lot of sweet, romantic short verses, I'd love to hear your ideas. I've also taken a verse or two from our favorite romantic songs. I originally thought I'd like to do this for him every year but didn't relize how hard it would be to find that many quotes & poems. Can't wait to hear all of your ideas too!

Ahhh, love is in the air already, I love it!

We got a red one on clearance. I found a cute valentines ribbon and bought three rolls and weaved it through the tree. We'll make some hearts too. Oh and picked up packs of pink and red paper doiles from dollar store. They come in all different sizes and have a ton in one pack. We started taping them to windows today.

For my kids the night before when they go to bed I decorate the kitchen with tons of hearts and valentine decoration then when the wake up to come eat breakfast and see all the decoration. I also put a present for them at the kitchen table. When they see they have a special treat sitting where they sit at the table they get so excited. for breakfast I make pancakes in heart shape and i shape the sausage in heart too. my boys love this!

I believe that the exact box is made by Kolo - I have one; it's the Havana box.  They're not cheap, but you can shop around online and maybe find it on clearance.  www.kolo.com

Quoting aidensmomma508:

what kind of box is that? cardboard? wood? i don't know?  what do they mean, double up the doilies? is that just putting one on top of another? sorry i just wondered?

I love to do uncomplicated crafts with my preschoolers.  Somehow I find that Holidays + Kids = Inspiration!  And if I ever can't come up with something, I'll just keep poking around online to find interesting projects!

Here's my most recent super simple idea:


I think we'll call it a paper "love chain" and use it for decorating and/or necklaces.

Soon I will be adding several of my Valentine's Day ideas to the pages in my signature links below.  


Ideas are always popping into my head.  They range from craft ideas to recipes to the plight of the modern woman.  Some I write about for others to read, while others I keep to myself.  Anyone who thinks moms don't use their brains is absolutely wrong!

I did these same ones for my girls....they love them

Quoting dylansmommybree:

For my sons kindergarten class last year we made his Valentines.  I found individual heart shaped molds at the dollar tree and took the paper off all the broken crayons around the house and melted them in the molds for a big multi colored crayon and cut out red paper and put the crayon on it and wrote different sayings on them such as "you color my world" "have a colorful Valentines day" things like that preheat the oven to 250 degrees put them in for approx. 10 to 15 mins till wax is completely melted here are some pics of us doing this last year.
