Be My Valentine Linky Party

Happy Valentine’s Day! Do you have any special plans? I am making a delicious steak dinner followed by molten lava cakes. I’m seriously considering eating dessert first.

We sent out Valentine’s to those we love earlier in the week. I couldn’t resist the make your own offerings from Target.

To kick off the party I thought I would share a few Valentine crafts I have made in the past.

Beginning with way back in 2010 ~ a Repurposed candy box. (This post also shows a video of how to wrap up a pretty bottled beverage.)
