some really cute things i could make for Valentine’s Day

imageI am loving this pillow.  What an adorable idea from Allisa Jacobs.

imageHow about this cute little wreath?  The book pages are a fun idea, but I might do it with pink and red and white hearts to make it a little more Valentiney.

imageI love how this garland is made from recycled magazines!  I can’t make the excuse that I don’t have the stuff for this project—just look under my bed!

imageI’ve got three girls and tons of hair clips, but none like this!

imageI can picture these hanging from our dining room chandelier.

image And how about this scarf?

imageLook at this “back of the chair envelope” to put love notes for your kids in!

But let’s be honest here—I am 99% sure I won’t make any of them.

Hi- I was so surprised to see that you commented on my Blog. I live in the burbs of St. Louis. Greg has 17 more months of his residency left and then were off to who knows where. Your girls are adorable. I bet they'll all be little runners like you. I'm going to check out your vegetarian Blog as well. I'm not a vegetarian but I do like to pretent that I am one. keep in touch!!
