The Look Of Love

It's beginning to look a lot like Valentine's Day around the house :)  Since February is the month of love, I'm not in any rush to take any of it down!  And if the decoration tear-down process works anything like it did after Christmas, we might be lookin' at this stuff until April!  HA!!

Remember these little balls I made that I got from this chick?! I had these hanging from my chandelier but decided I'd rather use them as a centerpiece for the dining room table.  I like this MUCH better!!

I LOVE my apothecary jars, but had NO idea what to do with them.  I took my favorite and filled it with conversation hearts.  Gotta love the Dollar Tree!

My fun little Valentine project...

Vday Entry Way

These frames were a fun little project.  I used sheet music scrapbook paper for the backing & used my Cricut to cut out a heart & the #14.  Then I used my distress ink pad {LOVE that thing} to dirty up the edges...

I made this LOVE banner with my Cricut & distress ink pad, too!  The fun little sparkly hearts were a random find at Wal Mart.  I had NO idea what I was gonna do with 'em when I found 'em, but for $2 a pack, I couldn't pass 'em up!

And a little something in the kitchen :)  I made these for my sweet friends last year for our little Valentine playgroup!
