Valentine's Day Mania!

Well I have 3 new Valentine's Day projects to show you. Yes 3! wahoo- I'm feeling super creative because of this new blog. Thanks for visiting everyone. Anyways this Valentine's Wreath is a Goodwill transformation. I think I bought it for a dollar last year. I repainted a few of the hearts and the love banner, and added more ribbon and a bow.

These little containers can be used for anything. Valentine love notes, a gift bag, candy, Visiting teaching treats or maybe even a few flowers. What else could they be used for? They are made by putting scrapbook paper and embellishments around used food containers. Another great way to reduce, reuse and recycle. I bet you have all the stuff you need at home already. Make sure to use strong tape or glue.
My little heart pillow. My hubby make me this awesome quilt for Valentine's Day (with the help of his Mom) the first year we were married. I love it! I have been wanting to make a cutie little pillow to go with it for a while.

I love the texture around the edges. You can snip the edges to help it out. It will get even better over time too. I used contrast stitching and squiggely sewing to give it those special details.

Can you tell I love ribbon? If you need steps or instructions let me know.


  1. Fun ideas! I can even see myself using the can one : )

  2. I love your crafty blog! I can't wait for many more of your ideas!

  3. I love all the ideas. Madison wants to make a blanket to read books with--I think we should make a matching pillow. Great ideas.
