Are you ready for the big day? Surprisingly, we here are ahead of the game and have finished most of our Valentine cards for school. Now that is a huge shocker because there have been years when my kiddos are busily filling out their cards the night before….UGH!!! As I was looking at all the cards I realized that I hadn’t done anything special for my kiddos. We don’t really have any huge V-day traditions….well, besides me scarfing down any leftover chocolates the kids bring home. Honestly, my fav candy holiday is Easter, but we will get to that at a later time. Shout out to Cadbury Eggs! Already spotted some in the store yesterday!
I digress….apologies. I wanted to create a V-day tradition where we could all write messages of love and appreciation for each other. (Um, I am not a perfect Mommy so I know how this new tradition is gonna roll but I’ll take my chances.) I do like writing little notes of encouragement and still occasionally will put notes in my kids lunch boxes. I came across this easy-peasy V-day envelope pattern here at Lookie What I Did. This really inspired me to start my new V-day tradition or try to start. It caught my eye because it had my two favorite things…. Felt & a Glue Gun! I was so excited to whip this puppy together that I didn’t take pics of the process. Ugh!! Next time I won’t get so wrapped up in my “felt obsession”…sorry, folks! A huge shout out to Lookie What I Did for sharing her Valentine Envelope pattern.
Here is the Valentine Envelope I created along with our new “I Love You Because….” Valentine Station.
Although, there are just a few more days ’til the Day of Love I am going to see if my fam can write some beautiful love & appreciation notes for each other. Who knows they might even enjoy it….crossing my fingers! 🙂
Do you have any special Valentine family traditions that you and your family celebrate?
Please share I’d love to hear from you!
