More Valentine's Projects...

Since I have been staying home with my sick Malia, I have had plenty of time to work on a few projects between long naps and endless movies. :) The first is a little notebook I found at Target and just recovered. It's pretty small (3.5x5.5) so I thought it would be a fun little thing to carry around with my in my purse. I am always saying "I love this" or "I love that". I thought it would be kinda neat to just carry this around with me and write down all the things I am always saying that I love. Hahaha. I'll keep ya posted on what goes in there... Here is a pic of it open. I put little heart eyelets in the front and back with ribbon strung through to hold it closed.

(Supplies used: Notebook from Target; Paper, Journaling Sticker, and Ribbon: American Crafts; tiny alpha stickers: Cosmo Cricket; and brads???I have been hoarding them since forever.)

Next, I made a little "Love Notes" tin with little cards for our family to write notes to each other.
I got this (it's about the size of a band-aid tin) at Robert's months ago. I didn't know quite what to do with it until now. I covered it with paper, added a few embellishments and added some little note cards to the inside.

Here are some of the cards:
(Supplies used: Tin from Robert's Craft; PP on outside: Scribble Scrabble; Trim, Rub-ons: American Crafts; Jewels: Imaginisce. For the inside note cards I used various things by Sassafras, American Crafts and some left over paper from the outside.)

I put the tin in a conspicuous spot so we can all remember to write little notes of appreciation and love to each other. Can't wait to see what happens with it!

Lastly, I made this simple print to frame as another V-Day decoration. The message is simple enough, that with a few tweaks to color, I could leave this up year round. Hmmm...

Hope you enjoy as much as I enjoyed creating!
