No, I didn’t incorrectly type that.

It’s how little guy says it.  He’s pretty thrilled that there’s another holiday to celebrate and I’m ready for anything to make the dullness of January disappear.

We’ll put up the garlands.

A little felt, scraps, double sided adhesive, connect with a decorative stitch.  Poof!  A garland.

Or go to Target and hit the Dollar Spot.  Love that section for holiday Made in China stuff.  Poof!  Garland for a dollar.

Need a Heart Day inspiration yourself? Here’s some starter ideas:

*Crochet Heart Garland

*Paper Garlands/Valentines Day

*Felt Valentine’s Bracelet

*Fabric Envelope and Card

*Colorful Garlands

*Pom Pom Garland

*Scalloped Fabric Garlands

I’ve also considered this for this coming Valentine’s Day, has anyone ever tried heart yo-yos?

I worked on some double sided napkins the other day as a house warming gift and got to thinking we could use some new ones ourselves around here.  So I dug around in the stash for some coordinates that looked Valentine’s Day themed.  I’ve had these prints for ages.  I think they’ll be perfect.

And of course we have to make the Almond Kiss Cookies.  Have to figure them out Gluten free…

I believe this recipe came from Better Homes and Gardens, but I think I ripped this out of a mag from my doctor’s office and didn’t get the full page.  My apologies for being bad, they shouldn’t have magazines encouraging us to eat sweets.  They are DELISH!

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
