15 Cards I've Made Recently

One of my goals this year was to make more time for cardmaking, scrapbooking, and crafting.  I was hoping to make at least two projects each month and so far I am blowing that goal out of the water!

Friday Favorites-- Valentine's Day Week

Even with two kids that were fighting off colds we managed to have a pretty fun week.  We got a small snow storm on Tuesday that turned to rain and freezing rain by night fall so Ian happily took off to plow and shovel Wednesday morning.  He was back by the time Alec was done at the orthodontist and what might have only been two days of schoolwork turned to three!  I was so happy to see us making great strides in our books.  So many of them only have a good 8 or so more lessons and I really hope to see us finishing up some in the next few weeks.

Here are some of our favorite moments and memories from our week:

Encouraging Hearts and Home-- Happy Valentine's Day!

I know Valentine's can be a bit of a cheesy holiday but I just love it!  I love having an excuse to shower my boys and husband with love and attention.  I planned to start our day with some homemade cinnamon buns and have a turkey dinner all set for tonight.  They each were greeted with a little token gift this morning (just a small box of chocolates) and we have a few fun activities planned for our day.

How will you celebrate?
