Valentine Sweets

Do you love Valentines Day as much as I do? What could be better than a day to remind those dear to us just how much they are loved. Whether they are reminded with a bouquet of flowers, a box of candy, a pretty handmade card or just a simple kiss it's the thoughtful reminder that means so much. There is something about Valentines Day that reminds me of a simpler, innocent time-- creating Valentine cards with paper doilies, glitter, glue and construction paper. I can still remember making my Valentine box to hold those special cards from classmates. Always hoping that cute boy would sign his card with "love". How special those boxes looked covered in aluminum foil and glitter.
This year I decided to start making my cards a little earlier than usual. It's much more enjoyable to take my time and create rather than rush to get them done. Here is a little peek at two that I have completed.
In the next couple of weeks leading up to Valentines Day, I will be posting more about this wonderful day. Before I close this first post I wanted to share two more of my favorite Valentine traditions.......
Pretty glittered hearts......

and these sweet little conversation hearts always make me SMILE

What a lovely post! Your cards are really sweet! And the picture of the candy hearts, wow, made me want to reach out and grab a few from the bowl! I like your story about how you named your Etsy shop. Funny how we come by the names that we have. Mine came to me in a dream and I knew right away that the name was just meant to be. take care, so glad that I found your blog. Deborah
