Confession: Our Christmas tree hasn't even come down yet (until tomorrow) and we have already started our Valentine's Day preparations! :) Is this a terrible faux pas? I hope not, because we've already got the ball rolling, so there's no turning back now! So on this subject, I was at Target last week, and look what I found in their dollar section?
The cutest little Valentine's Day mailboxes, which come in red, pink, and white. (Of course.) And I had a great idea, one I knew the kids would love. They each have their own mailbox, and my husband and I share one. From now until February 14th, we are going to sneak little notes or cards, treats, etc. into the mailboxes! It has been a big hit already, and I think it will be a tradition! I also picked up cute Valentine's socks for the kids and a little box of candy for everyone. Once a week, I am going to put something extra special inside the mailboxes, and these will be just perfect for that! All of this I found in the dollar section! :) AND I found these...
It's true I paid $7 for these crafting supplies, but it would have been a whole lot more expensive at Michaels, as much as I LOVE that store! The chipboard letters are so expensive that I have started tracing the ones I have onto white cardstock and then glittering them up. I like the look of those nice, big chipboard letters, but not the price! The ones here were just one dollar for each alphabet, so I swept them up! And this leads me to my second confession: The first craft on my list for this holiday was, you probably already guessed it~ a banner! Are you sick and tired of seeing these yet? But you know, I like me a nice banner!
I am sure you won't be surprised that this will not be my only banner...stay tuned for more. Or not, if you are thinking banners are getting a little old. :) (I really am physically able to do other crafts, but this is the top priority craft, so it gets done first around here!)
And I can't wait to read this magazine! It came a week or so ago, and I've still barely peeked at it! Does anyone else enjoy this one? The cake on the front looks SO good, I think I'm going to have to try it out! :)
So are you thinking about February 14th? What kind of traditions do you enjoy each year?
Have a blessed night! :)
