Awesome Valentine Craft Ideas

Normally I manage to get 2 posts out a week, but this is a special week as I'm hoping to post every day. 

Valentine's Day is my very favorite holiday, and this is the first of a number of fun ideas I'm sharing this week for you to consider making for those special people in your life.

(I couldn't resist changing the background - I love stickers, and this is sorta like adding stickers to my blog. {wink} Wish I would have thought of changing in on Feb. 1, but it'll be nice change for a little while.)

Cindy at Skip to my Lou blows me away with all the darling crafty ideas she shares at her site!  She is brilliant and just loaded with a variety of creative sweetness. Maybe because she has a bachelor's degree in art & education???

There are many things of interest right there...recipes...links with printable decorations and homemade gift step-by-step instructions.
