Friday Favorites–Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day used to require a lot more planning on my part.  The kids were small, so there were school parties and Valentines to make, or at the very least write on.  These days it comes a little more quietly.  The down side is that I kinda miss the experience, but there is a plus.  I actually get to remember that I have a Valentine myself.  We’re celebrating with dentist appointments in the morning and working late to make up the time.  Ahh, being an adult is so romantic.

We may not get much time together on Valentine’s Day, but I could still surprise my sweetheart with this Man Candy Box from Frou Frugal.  Click through and you’ll also find directions for matching duct tape roses.


These Heart Envelopes from Forty Weeks may look somewhat ordinary, but they fold out to reveal a heart shape, perfect for a love note.

These Arrow Cupcake Toppers from The Sweetest Occasion are also cute embellishments for brownies.


Originally shared as a Christmas craft, I think this DIY Serving Tray from Tutto Bella would be a perfect Valentine addition.

I kind of love anything made from branches, so I this Wreath from Tree Branches from Pretty Handy Girl would be great for my front door.


Zakka Life shares a great video showing how to make these Origami Lucky Hearts.

It’s not often you see Strawberry Cocoa, but this version from Babble looks fun and Valentiney.


These Adorable Homemade Valentines from Our Crazy Boys are exactly the kind of thing I miss making.


Or these Blast Off Rocket Candy Cards from Family Fun


These Super Valentines from Zakka Life (again!), might push me over the edge.  Somebody is getting a Valentine.
