Love Weeks- Day 8 & 9

Day 8

A little something for me.

I thought perhaps I'd get something new to wear, but then the Pottery Barn catalog came in and, well, I just knew I wanted this basket. Along with a pair of Converse,( I had to order to order 3 pairs to get free shipping on the boys Converse.) Red was all sold out in my size.

Day 9
The Heart Attack

This is a spin-off of something the Heart Attack I did for Mr. Dunbar on our first Valentine's Day. The boys were so excited to help me put up the hearts as a "special surprise for Daddy."  When you walk into the Great Room at our house this is mainly what you see.





I used scrapbook paper that I got at the Dollar Spot at Target (8 Valentines sheets in the package) and Pom Pom yarn (priced at $4.99, but I used my  40% off coupon.)

Tonight I'm going to add a couple hearts to each ceiling fan in the boys rooms. For a special surprise for them in the morning.   You could also tape large hearts to skewer sticks and stick them in your front yard along with a sign on the front door telling your loved one that they've been "Heart Attacked."

Look at you go! I am proud of you for stepping it up, when quite frankly making it to the dinner might be my only Valentine to my HOney. I am SWAMPED this week ~ oy I might have gone deeper than I wanted, with this school thing.

You are so crafty. Me, not so much, but I am trying to be better at it. Love your "heart attacked" idea.

That is too funny what your husband said too. Tell him your welcome. ;)
