Friday night - my favorite night of the week and I have to say this is my favourite project too- I have had this in mind from the very beginning. I hope you love the concept.
While we are not huge Valentines celebrators as such - you know the typical husband response - commercial nonsense - ANYHOW I am decorating this year as you know and my girls are huge fans of wring me love notes. They usually consist of I love you Mumma and snuck next to my bed or with a cup of tea in the morning - its so sweet. So I thought of making it something we really try hard to do during the Valentines week- and Richard has to play too.
I have decorated 4 little white paper bags with sweet tapes from Kyoto General Store - Skye and Pip have the best stuff - but more on that soon -
I also added some alpha stickers- one bag for each of us
and hung them on my little doilies hanging spot which I use for favourite post cards or nice mail - photos - whatever takes my fancy. So at the moment it has my little bags.
The idea is that through the week before valentines we all have to write one another some sweet love notes -as many as we like - and I'm particularly going to get the girls to write something if they have had cross words and pop them into the bags.
Then on valentines day we will open up them up and read them all.
I’m so excited about this - and so are the girls. Richards saying does he really have to add bling to his notes? I said no only if he feels like it. I'm guessing that won't be the case.
Now if you’d like to make your own using the same tape
Skye has kindly offered all my readers 30% off all orders until Valentines day (promo ending midnight 14.02.2011).
You will need to enter discount code love is in the air.
AND she’s also offering the first 10 orders a free miffy love pen ....just cause she was in the mood to share the love around!
We have these pens and they are just too too cute. Sof wanted to take hers to school but I won’t let - mean mother I am - I don’t want her to lose it :)- and besides it looks so cute in my basket of goodies.
I’d love to know if you set up something similar at your home and how it goes :)
Don’t forget to pop over to Mel’s blog too today for her last project. I know you’ll love it.
