valentine fun

Anyone can go to Hallmark and buy a card for their Valentine, but my mom always said the best gifts are homemade (or she said something like that!)

I am always looking for new DIY Valentine’s Day gifts for my hubby, kids, the grandparents and my kids classrooms. I have found some really cute ideas out there to share!

I really adore mason jars – these are so sweet with the hearts and glitter. A great grandparent or girlfriend gift.

Make Heart Shaped Eggs

I tried to find the original source of this great idea, but couldn’t (if anyone know, please let me know so I can properly credit them!)  How fun would it be to come down to breakfast for these adorable heart shaped eggs?

  2. This may seem like a really obvious question, but how do I download the template for the “I <3U" pop out card? Thank you! 🙂
