A week full of love and crafting

I am so lucky to have three beautiful girls who share my love for some good crafting time! The week before Valentines Day Kent was out of town so we decided to do some real girly stuff (sorry Jake). We headed off to JoAnne's, got the supplies we needed, and had a great time! The first thing we worked on were these cute bags that we used as mail boxes for us to send love notes and surprises to each other all week long. I think they turned out adorable! We decided to save them and make it a new tradition.

Can you tell who is who?

Most of the little surprises I put in their bags I just got at the dollar section at Target. They were thrilled!

Abbie cut out a whole yard of little red felt circles. It turned into an adorable wreath!

I was in charge of Kate's school Valentine party. I decided to make a Valentine Memory game. I just cut out all the shapes and numbers on my Cricut and then went and got them all laminated.

I love Valentines Day and the opportunity it gives me to show my family how much I love them. Now the challenge is to keep showing them all year long. Ü
