14 days of love {day 1}

daysoflove2013

It’s Friday and normally this would be a Fantastic Friday post, but today is the first day of February and February is the month of love. I’m constantly trying to find ways to create specialness in our day to day family life and especially when it comes to celebrating. God has given me a little girl that loves nothing more than to create a party, give gifts and make things for others. Her heart is encouraged by little notes and she never fails to notice something new or different or special. And I have a son who is like me and February 14th could pass with nothing more than a little card and he would just be fine.

So in their honor, I am spending the next 14 days on a little series I call “days of love: 14 days of celebrating those we love”. In the next 14 days you can expect some decorating ideas, crafting ideas, sewing ideas, special memories you can make with your family or those you love and more.

But today, in honor of my normal linking madness I thought I would link to a few Valentine ideas that I’ve come across.

One thing I do want to make in these 14 days is a Valentine’s Day wreath. Well actually I want to make one that would carry me from Winter to Valentine’s Day to Easter but you’ll just have to stay tuned for that idea later. But I do love this XOXO wreath on etsy.

I have other table setting ideas that I hope to do this year, but these little XO paper votive holders would be super cute as you think about decorating your table this month.

If I had a mantle to decorate I would definitely do this little birdie paper collage to set on top…speaking of mantle’s check out my friend Tisha’s Valentine’s mantle!

I’ve got a whole host of Valentine ideas to give away on my “to give” board on Pinterest…stay tune for the next 13 days to see which of these we end up choosing!

Happy Weekend and Happy Celebrating!!!
