Happy Valentine's Day

Smiley from

It's a foggy Valentine morning here in Northern CA.  I'm working on getting my garden weeded and ready for transplants, but I wanted to share a couple of Valentine treats I recently made.

First is a Valentine I made for my best friend from high school, Paula.  Paula was a bridesmaid in my wedding 22 years ago and she had recently married Bob that same year.  This is a picture of them at our rehersal dinner.  I printed the picture out in black and white and used paper flowers, buttons, ribbons and a tag to create a vintage look.  I really love the way this came out and I can't wait to hear her reaction.

This little cutie is a slider box I made using Lauren Meader's templates, which can be found HERE.  I filled it with heart-shaped chocolates for my buddy Ali.  She's enjoying a snow weekend in the Sierras, so I can safely post her Valentine without her seeing it.  This was a really fast and easy project to put together and it's really fun adding your own personal touches.  My daughter saw me making it and wants her own "pink" raccoon now.  Oh my gosh!

That's it for me now, as usual, I had lots more valentine projects in my head, that I just didn't have time to make.  I may just make them anyway and be ahead of the game for next year.  Of course, that means I will have to remember where I've put them next Valentine's Day.

Hope you all have a wonderful, love-filled Valentine's Day with people who mean the most.
