Happy Heart and 25 Shmacks!

When I was a little girl, my favorite thing about Valentine's Day was my mom's heart-shaped sugar cookies.  They were always frosted pink.  She made the best sugar cookies around!  (She still does!)

As I've gotten older I've realized my favorite thing about Valentine's Day has shifted a little bit.  Sure, I still love the candy and the cookies and the roses, but I'm finding I get just as excited about the decor!  I have a heart banner hanging in my kitchen.  I have a heart wreath on my front door.  I have wooden hearts on shelves.  All the hearts make my heart happy!

I love being "festive" and decorating for this "season of love."

I'm guest posting for The Wood Connection today.  If you'd like to see my tutorial for the world's most darling craft (ha!), you can view it here:  http://www.thewoodconnectionblog.com/37879/


A "heartfelt" thanks to The Wood Connection for allowing me the opportunity to guest post.  Working with them is almost more of a treat then eating one of my mama's sugar cookies!  (Almost.  Wink.)  The Wood Connection has generously donated a $25 gift certificate to be given to one of YOU!  Simply comment below to be entered in the drawing.  (Tell me what you love about the "Day O' Love!")  Winner will be notified February 9th!

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Crafting!

  2. I really like how you left some of the bare wood showing on your project :) I have to say I love the pink frosted heart shaped sugar cookies best, too! Only now I make them for my own kids!

  5. So cute! Valentine's Day/week/month has taken on a special meaning at our house since we have a little heart warrior now. He had two open heart surgeries at ages 5 weeks and 3 months to help correct congenital heart defects. February is National Congenital Heart Defect Awareness month, and now being a heart momma, Valentine's and February are really special! ❤️

  6. We don't just do Valentine's Day, we have Love Week. Because what's better than an excuse to tell my kiddos how much I love them for seven days straight?

  10. I love that it is one of my son's most favorite holidays. :) He is 7. When I was growing up I loved that my dad always did something for me and when I was in college he sent me flowers for Valentine's every year. Those are good memories.

  11. I love how excited my kids get when I put the heart decorations up. "Look mommy a heart!" And you can't forget the cheesy romantic movies you get to weasel your husband into watching.

    http://toko-gw.com/uncategorized/ini-dia-proses-terjadinya-penyakit-diabetes-menurut-ahli Too often, healing opportunities are lost because we’re stuck with old misconceptions about what visits are all about, and you’ll find that people will have all sorts of reasons for stopping by to see you when you’re ill. They may come out of love, concern, a desire
    to be helpful, guilt, a sense of obligation, and many other motives. In our estimation, the bottom line is always your healing,
