A Valentine of sorts

I like V-day a lot.
Aside from the candy and flowers, it's just a sweet time to celebrate my loves.
Of course my cute hubby and kids are my sweet valentines, but I have a new Valentine this year.

It's totally corny and I guess I can officially call myself a Jesus Freak now...ha!
My new Valentine this year is Jesus.

I feel closer to God than I ever have in my life.
To tell you the truth, I can't believe I'm saying that.
I've been afraid of that for a long time.
And then I prayed for the courage to ask for it.
And now here I am~
I read a cool quote over the weekend:
"every saint has a past and every sinner has a future"
I love that.
I have a looooooong way to go in my relationship with God, but I feel so grateful and blessed to know His love.

And so, this little love piece was born over the weekend.






On a totally different note, remember these glittery beauties?


I wrapped some up over the weekend in these really cute bags I found at World Market...
Each bag has four sets of glittery clothespins, eight total.
They are perfect for hanging up art or photos, using to clip a card on a gift, or one million other things.

Speaking of Valentines Day again, I'm looking for some creative ideas for my kids to make Valentines for their classmates this year. Something other than candy!

I like these...
And this.

Maybe I should ask them what they want to make?  ;)
We have the day off from school tomorrow and I thought it would be a good time to make them.

I'll let you know what we decide.
I'm thinking that spending a couple of hours peeling and sorting crayons sounds like a great time to me!
I hope you had a blessed weekend.

Oh my goodness those bags are so cute! We love matroyshka dolls around here. I may have to hop online to see if I can order them for birthday parties since we dont have a store nearby.
And your artwork is lovely as usual. Have a lovely Monday!
