lots of reasons on a string

I told you how pumped I was for Valentine's riiiiiiiiiight? Well I didn't tell you that I had this little number up my sleeve! Not because I don't like you, it's just that I know a special little buddy of mine checks up on me on here (makes sure I don't say dumb stuff) and it was sort of a surprise for him. So now he's seen it and opened the first 3 days already (and totally dug it, can't you see it in his happy little face?) and I get to let all of you guys in on the little surprise! Plus I wouldn't be the quintessential blogger that I am if I didn't share a little DIY now and then........

I've been feeling pretty crafty this Valentine's and I wanted to do something cute for my boy which naturally led me to making lovely little Valentines out of craft paper and paper doily hearts. On each I wrote my reasons of why I love that red headed man of mine and he gets to open one every day until they run out (not because I don't have any more reasons, because hey! I got lots. but because I made 14 in honor of Valentine's. sappy I know, but roll with it).

AND it doubles as a cute little Valentine's banner. Score!

Now let's send us off with a good old happy sappy love song.


Oh alright! How about two....


K! I'm done! I'm done! Promise. Unlessssssss....no you're right. I'm done.

L.O.V.E. IT! I'm going to buy some doilies asap because I want to make some for my honey. And maybe some friends. And maybe my kids. Thanks for the great idea little sis.

Today I heard a commercial on the tv. I wasn't watching so I don't know what it was for...just listening from another room. Anyway, it said something like this....It isn't I love you day, it is I love us day. I liked that.
