Valentine Buys and Craft Ideas

With Valentine's Day only a week away, I'm setting the mood at home by baking heart cookies, bringing out my Valentine's XO Wreath, and diving head first into Valentine crafts with the girls

On a personal love-note, my husband and I just celebrated the 15 year anniversary of our first date. How did that happen so quickly?! I still feel like we're in college and haven't aged that much. Time flies when you're having fun and in love!


I thought I'd do a quick round up of some fun love-themed gifts and decor to help everyone else get into the mood. They're not your traditional romantic gifts, these are a little more fun and lighthearted. Because after 15 years, that's what love is, right?! Hope these spark a little V-Day love in your worlds!

Craft Ideas

It wouldn't be a holiday if I didn't have some DIY on the menu. I found some new Valentine crafts that would be so fun to do! I'm hoping I have some time this weekend to get one of them done. Find even more ideas from years past here. Cheer's to Crafting Love.

I heart You

Valentine's Day is around the corner and there are so many wonderful ways to decorate. Not that I like to go all out with an explosion of red and hearts, but I like to get in the Valentine's mood with little touches here and there.

I feel like I'm on a crafting kick since the new year and put together a list of the top 5 V Day crafts that hopefully I'll be able to pull off since I'm starting a few weeks early. 

I'll keep you updated as I attempt each one.  

On a personal note, this VDay is super special as my husband and I just celebrated 13 years since our first date! We'll be married 4 years in May, but we've always celebrated (or acknowledged, now that we have kids) our first date, rather than Valentine's Day since they're so close, because it started off the rest of our lives together. Cheesy, yes, but we like it!

Do you have a favorite Valentine's decor or romantic story you'd like to share? I'd love to hear about it!

Happy crafting!
