I am sitting here writing this post and watching the beautiful snow fall at my little house, and I am so happy! I was the kind of kid who was hopeful to make a snow angels every year, so I am giddy to get out in this stuff with my kiddos (when they get up from nap time!).
(**Update, we made it out in the snow, after a crazy long amount of time bundling up to get outside! And, we totally made snow angels! Myself included!**)
No doubt the snow will be melted and gone in a day or 2, but we are going to enjoy it while we can! Then after it’s gone, it’s on to other fun things coming up!
We are less than 3 weeks from Valentine’s Day! Love it or hate it, it’s coming. I personally have always enjoyed Valentine’s day. Even times that it was just me, I loved making it a special day! Going out with girlfriends, making little crafty things, and dwelling on the fact that I am loved by my Savior are sweet memories that I have from my pre-husband college days.
This year, I am having my 9th Valentine’s Day with my man! He is sweet, so very handsome, but is not really into gifts. And, honestly, his favorite gift is me not spending any money. “Happy birthday/anniversary/Christmas/etc my darling husband! I didn’t buy you anything! And, you’re welcome!”
But I love doing a little something for my hubs for Valentine’s Day. I want to celebrate him and give him gifts, but I also don’t want to spend a lot/any money. So, enter DIY gifts! I love scanning pinterest or googling ideas and finding cute, fun, and cost effective gifts that my husband will like and appreciate. A lot of times just seeing some ideas will spur my creative juices and spring board me to something different, but perfect!
I would love to share with you some of the fun things that I have come up with over the years and some of the cute ideas that I have come across on the world wide web! Maybe these ideas will spring board you to a fun idea of your own!
And, I have something fun to introduce to you in a few days! I’m adding something new to the shop, and I’m thinking a little giveaway in honor of it and in honor of Valentine’s Day would be awesome!
So let’s get our creativity going, and let’s get ready to love on those special people in our lives for Valentine’s Day (super inexpensively!). Get ready for some Valentine’s posts my friends!
