OH MAN! Doesn’t that just make you happy! For those of you new to my “Just Love” posts, they are simply full of pictures or videos or snippets of items that I just love. Nothing more, nothing less 🙂

Lovable Chocolate

In my opinion, no holiday is complete without chocolate. This is ESPECIALLY true for Valentine’s Day. Here is some chocolatey goodness courtesy of none other than Martha Stewart.

Valentines for Kids

February 9, 2010

Sometimes, making recipes or crafts meant for kids is way more fun than doing the ones meant for adults. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, here are a few more Martha crafts meant just for kids…. Or for those of us that still exercise our inner child!

I Chew-se You!

Hand-Made Valentines

February 8, 2010

So, anyone that knows me understands that things I craft or put together tend to end up crooked, broken, cracked, or any other form of imperfect that you can think of. Spence likes to call these items “Carli Perfect.” Rather than be embarrassed, I just tend to own it. That said, look what I did:

First I found this awesome hole punch that creates a scalloped edge:

I took the pink paper and attached them to little clear bags that I filled with conversation hearts. The end product was (although rather home-made looking) kinda cute:

Well, regardless of the result, I am so glad that I made these. Before these candy bags, I can’t remember the last time I did a craft. Yay for pretending to be Martha for a few hours 🙂

More Valentines

February 8, 2010

To continue the spirit of Valentine’s Day throughout the week, here are some more adorable crafts from Martha Stewart. And, lets be honest, even if you aren’t a big crafter, the pictures are pretty darn cute to look at!

Love Tea

Felt Fortune Cookies

Paper Heart Wreaths

Don’t worry, this is just the beginning of the week. So much more fun to come!

It’s Coming…

February 8, 2010

Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is coming on February 14th. In my opinion, any day where it is acceptable to wear pink from head to toe is a great day. Then throw in some hearts, chocolate, and roses and you pretty much have the shiniest day in existence!

To get everyone in the mood, I would like to share a few adorable Valentine’s Day crafts with you, courtesy of Martha Stewart of course!

Crayons + Wax Paper + Iron

Carnation Heart

Heart Candy Holders

This makes me want to run to Michaels and start crafting immediately!
