We’ve had a lot going on over here. I just finished up with our local IF: Gathering and it dawned on me that this Friday is Morgan’s Valentine’s Day party for her classroom!! Of course today is a snow day – perfect day to work on them. BUT – I hadn’t bought valentines yet. Also, I’m not terribly crafty so I don’t have supplies hanging around. Except cardstock, a paper cutter and scissors… Besides that I’m not up for going out on the roads.
So, we took to the internet to see if we could find some cute free printables! I landed on this post from Pop Sugar, and while there are 52 different options, a few really stood out to me. I thought I’d share them with you in case you’re stuck at home with cardstock and no valentines!!
Click the images to visit the respective sites, and read to the end to see which ones we ended up picking! All pictures are from their respective posts. Check them out – I think you’ll love other things on their sites too!

And… drumroll……….. Here’s what we picked:
In the end Morgan couldn’t pick just one!! So we did the cute candy hearts and the lips – what a riot, right??
On another note… I just started reading The Lifegiving Home: Creating a Place of Belonging and Becoming by Sally and Sarah Clarkson, along with The Lifegiving Home Experience: A 12-Month Guided Journey and I’m so challenged by it right now. It’s broken into months, and the focus of February is on love – especially showing Jesus’ love to our family members even as we fully embrace Jesus’ love for us. There are so many ways I can improve at both aspects of this. They also touch on creating meaningful and memorable celebrations and traditions including special times of feasting! I’m thinking chocolate chip pancakes this Sunday!
All that to say – I hope today you feel the depth of Jesus’ love for you – no matter what you’ve done or how lost you feel He’s right there waiting for you and He is madly in love with you. Truly.
