No, this post won't be completely dedicated to my sweep-me-off-my-feet fantastic husband but more to the holiday which celebrates the wonderful bond that holds us together - LOVE! I love Valentines day! Not really for the little gifts of chocolate, flowers, and jewelry (which I only ever got from my parents until I met Peter...) but for the fun, whimsical feeling of puppy love it brings with all the paper hearts and girly embellishments to your decor. I have been scanning the web a little lately (because we FINALLY have the internet at home!!!!) and have found some great blogs with marvelous Valentines day decoration ideas!!
I haven't begun on my own yet because every time I sit down to do a craft of some sort (which hasn't been very often lately...) I feel a pang of guilt shoot through me because I haven't gotten any of my sweet Ella's projects done for her nursery (or clothing for that matter). Today however there will be time made for me to work on a few little projects all of which will find a photo op spotlight on this blog in the next few weeks.
Ok, first off on my list of V-day inspiration is none other than my rockin aunt, Tiff. She has two blogs, fourlittleloves and The Children's Nest - both sources of wonder and inspiration as she is one of the most creative people I have ever met! I saw this more than cute banner she made for her front entry way and I now must have one for myself - and I think I know the perfect place for it to hang! On the Children's Nest she has also recently posted a TON of great ideas that are really easy and again look adorable!
After rummaging around her Love fest for a bit I linked over to Domestic Fashionistas blog who has given us a visual tour of all her little V-day additions and I must say that I LOVE IT! This woman is a real bargain hunter, you can tell!
Of course you can always rely on the fall back - Martha - she will never cease with fantastic ideas and crafts for every holiday!
Matthew Mead also has provide some fun looking recipes for Valentines Day - if you have a subscription to his site you can go check it out - this one looks great and easy! To give you a
hint, it is a lot like those little pretzel hugs that I made during Christmas time but instead of using a Hug you just drizzle the mallow with dark chocolate and place the candy on top (oh geeze, now I have given away the whole recipe...)
Also a new site I have stumbled upon is One Pretty Thing - she also has collected great V-day ideas from around the web and compiled them into a few pics and links to all their wonders... go check that out for sure!
If you have done your searching and you have found the ultimate source for great Valentintes ideas, PLEASE post them in the comments so we can all share.
Can't wait to see what you all have created too - so let us know if you have posted something marvelous about the holiday of LOVE!
