Happy (Belated) Valentine’s Day
While we’re not huge fans of Hallmark holidays, we do like to celebrate special occasions in our own way. I’m big on spending quality time together, so I figured there was no better time to sign Joe up for some volunteer activities. Hey, that was my Valentine’s Day wish.
As his first day on the job, Joe got a fresh new tee. I think yellow is your new color, Joe! Lookin’ good. You can read more about it on the Cheerful Givers’ blog.
We also got some customized pot pie dinner. Thanks, Lora!
Followed by an ooey gooey dessert.
It’s probably the one time a year I make chocolate chip cookies.

I realized I didn’t have any Valentine’s Day themed decorations! WHaaa. I found a couple pre-Vday clearanced things at Joanne Fabrics that I wanted to play around with.
First was this slate heart. It’s a chalkboard, but I thought it would look cool with paint.
I luckily had just enough white paint to make pink! And I used my high-tech fingernail to etch our initials in.
Ta dah! It fits oh so nicely on the wall.
Too bad it only lasted a week. Now, what about St. Patrick’s decorations?
Next was this plain wooden heart.
I started wrapping twine around it using a hot glue gun.
And I had some lace trim from a demolished sweater to add.
I scrounged up some black ribbon…
and lace trim that was laying around.
I found a good angle and fixed the ribbon to the wood.
Remember that bamboo keyboard I had sitting around? I found a few uses. Here’s one.
What did you do? What are some St. Patrick’s Day craft ideas?
