Fave Friday + Valentines

Are you prepping for Valentine’s Day.  Do you go all out or have any great traditions?  I don’t.  In my dreams I wish to do a bunch of homemade crafty crafts, give lavish gifts, and -Oh yea- GET them!  But alas, I’ll accept a nice card and settle for simple home made Valentine crafts + cards.  I love these ideas:

image 2 / do / Valentines for a child

And how was your week lovelies?  Mine was a super busy one with birthdays, deadlines, and yes painting my bathroom [I’ll fill you in on the next week].  I plan to lay low this weekend.  Put the bathroom back together [the toilet is still sitting in my laundry room] and sort out a bunch of kids clothes.  What are your plans?

I’ve been around the web this week:

You can read how I started blogging, in the first place, over on Blogstar.

And I’m over at Kirtsy where I’ve curated an interiors slideshow inspired by Downton Abbey.

Speaking of Valentine’s, Camille has the super cutest  Valentines Craft party video.

Don’t forget to enter the $100 MINTED giveaway [it ends Sunday].

You know I have a weekend baking problem [addiction].  These look pretty great.

I always love a Not So Obvious Diaper Bag, don’t you?

    I don’t really do anything for valentines day, but this year I am going to celebrate my love of chocolate and take some goodies into work
    Just relaxing over the weekend, you enjoy yours!
