(DIY Valentine's Day Wax Seal)

Dear Valentine's Day Projects, There was a time when a whole day would be dedicated to you. My girls would put together cards for all their classmates while I worked on a new project. Remember that year when we painted all of the wood hearts together and made into into a banner to hang across the stairs? That one was so sweet, especially when the girls signed them. I should go dig those out of the bin. This year though, I am not sure what my kids are up for. But I am not giving up hope just yet. There was this moment in the store the other day that gave me hope. Yes, Peanut is under that bear. Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 10.07.36 AM Peanut left with some gifts for her friends and a pack of Valentine's. Sunshine could not even be convinced to give cards to her friends as a joke. But I am not giving up hope. The rustic Valentine letters will come back out. HowtomakeDIYrusticwoodletters_thumb.jpg And my embroidered canvas art will come back out as well.

Because you and I both know, sweet Valentine's day projects, that the most important thing is that they know how much they are loved. ILoveYouBecauseValentineLetter_thumb.jpg Thank you for all the memories and I am looking forward to making new ones together. Sincerely, The mom who's kids are growing so fast
