Here comes another holiday sneaking up on us! I always look forward to Valentine’s Day, not because I want chocolates and flowers but because I get the chance to make and give warm and wonderful sweet nothings to everyone I know and care about. Plus, when you have kids involved, it’s all kinds of crafty fun.
It’s also a good time to add a couple of tastefully executed decorations to our home. I’m sure my daughter will help me with some ideas too—she’s such a little decorator. Here are some of the ideas that are inspiring me right now, but who knows what we’ll come up with in the end. With my daughter’s help, the sky is the limit.

DIY Valentine’s Day Arrow Cookie Picks

I’m always envious of those moms who make themed breakfasts for their kids—like green scrambled eggs on St. Patrick’s Day. It seems so ambitious! But I can get behind Valentine’s Day cookies like these—so sweet! (See what I did there?)
