Sorry guys, I kind of forgot I had to post today. So calling this post a DIY is really sort of a lie. I mean, I did make all of these items myself. I did "do it myself"...but I will not be including any how-tos because as you will see by the pictures, it's pretty self explanatory.
What I will tell you is that every year, Chris and the kids and I make each other our Valentine's gifts. The rule is no store-bought gifts. No flowers, no chocolates, and no diamonds. (I mean, I guess I wouldn't be too mad if Chris broke the rules every once in a while.) And every year, I love my gifts to no end.
This year, I decided to make the kids these cute little chalkboards. I wrote "I love you because _________" in permanent chalk marker, and plan on filling in a new item every day. They are tiny, and I will hang them from their bedroom doorknobs while they're sleeping so they can wake up to their very first "because" on Valentine's Day.
For Chris, I decided to make him (and myself) a t-shirt. Our first dance at our wedding was "Good Hearted Woman" by Willie Nelson. So, it's very apropos that I made us these shirts. I think you can tell which is his and which is mine...
And that's it. These are my gifts. I'll add homemade cards, and calzones shaped like hearts for dinner. Sounds like a perfect Valentine's Day to me!
How do you celebrate!
love to you all!
