Valentine Entry & A 'Wild' Valentine DIY

I have a bit of confession to make. 
I didn't even get our Valentine decorations up until this past weekend. I honestly think I would have just skipped the entire thing if we didn't have kids to call us out on it!
So, I compromised by just doing a small vignette in our entry. 


The heart was a craft I did a few years back using a wooden heart I found at Goodwill. I just used scrap paper and embellishments I already had. 




I'm sorta in love with this arrow print and want to have it stay forever :) So don't be surprised if you see it somewhere else in this house in a different color scheme!



The arrows were made from our chopsticks, scrapbook paper, and tape.


I also wanted to share with you the valentines I made for our little guys' class party. I don't think I mentioned it here on the blog, but shortly after our little Boo's hospital stay, he started preschool! It's a program our state does through the school system for children with delays- in our case it's a speech delay. Although it broke my heart to send him off in a bus, he absolutely adores his new school and we are thrilled with the entire experience so far. His class is a new one and only has three children in it at the moment, so I thought it would be nice to do something really cute. 
I always love the little boxes of animal crackers and since I already have a jungle themed party collection in my shop, I simply took those and turned them into valentines. 







I love how they still look boy-ish. Perfect for our little man :)

    1. Hmm. I am not quite sure what the problem is - I can view and download it as a guest just fine. If you like, I can email you the file instead. Just email me (so you're not posting your address up here) at nestlingdesignstudio(at)gmail(dot)com

      Thanks!

    1. I added it with my drawing program (so you would need one to add it as well). For the free version I just left it blank to be filled out by hand :)

      Good luck!

  3. Help! I am trying to download and I get a pop-up box that says this file is read-only.
    School V-day parties were postponed until Tuesday due to weather.
