Dr. Love

I really appreciate a homemade Valentine, and if I can help it, we will be a homemade Valentine family for as long as my children will allow it (and even then, I will always make my own). There is something so special about heart shaped doilies and glitter, I'm quite giddy just thinking about it. So today, we set up the assembly line and the Crazies helped make Valentines for Goofball's class, Grandparents, Uncle Michael, Aunt Katie, and my 5th graders. After they went to nap (although, as I type this, "Sweetpea" is screaming for the 287th day in a row before she passes out from exhaustion... but that's another post).

I wanted to do something different for Gary this year, so I'm making him 100 "Love Potion Pills"... here's what you need:
* 100 water soluble pill capsules (I got mine from Whole Foods in the medicinal area... don't ask me why someone might want to make their own medicine, I'm just glad to be able to buy them)
* 100 thin strips of paper (pink, red, white)
* 100 reasons why I love Gary

First, write a special sentiment on the first strip of paper. Next, tightly roll it up. Last, open capsule and insert paper. Repeat 100 times. When I'm done, I'm going to package them up in a cute jar and he has 100 days of loving affirmations from his adoring wife. If you have a cute Valentine idea, leave the link here! I do love a good Valentine!

Handmade Valentines are far more special than even the most elaborate and expensive Hallmark card...because they truly come from the heart !

Saw your post on the etsy forums thread about blog followers. It's always great to discover new blogs and we all love to have new followers. I'll be following you just as soon as I post this comment. :)
