Valentine's day is just around the corner so I thought I'd show you a few no-cost, earth friendly ways to add a little love around your home this Valentine's Day.
Scrabble is one of the most popular board games around so chances are you have one and can use some of those familiar wooden letters to spell out a message for your family.
A majority of you who follow my blog are paper crafters and have a ton of cards laying around the scrap room that you can use to decorate with. Here I have one of the cards I've made recently propped up against a stack of books.
How about something from the kitchen? This is a set of nesting heart shaped cookie cutters I've had for years. These are displayed on a stack of books. I was blog hopping the other day and saw that someone also decorated with a set of heart cookie cutters placed flat on a tray, each filled with some Valentine candies. Very cute!
We all have books! This is a simple and subtle way to add a little love anywhere in the house!
What paper crafter doesn't own at least one set of wood mounted alphas? These can be used for many other holidays and special occasions too!
I saved the best for last! This is a paper heart pillow that my incredibly talented friend Audrey Pettit is making for me! Isn't this stunning?!?! Can you believe she made this gorgeous pillow with a paper shopping bag? Yes indeed! And vintage sheet music, and lace, and stitching! It'll be the crown of my Valentine decor!
So what will you be doing for Valentine's Day? Do you celebrate the day? My husband and I always steal some time away together, but it doesn't have to be on Valentine's Day. We don't like packed restaurants...takes the fun out of it, you know? In years past we've gone away for the weekend. It all depends on what we feel like doing. How about you? Whatever you do for Valentine's Day, I hope you enjoy every second! :) Kathy
