Valentine Pillow Love

Click here for the Valentine Link Party!

 
Beautiful valentine pillows to share with you from the link party today. 
So just relax and rest up with these comfy posts...
For tomorrow is February 1st--Valentine crunch time!  Are you ready?

 Sweet Floweret designed this pillow using felt hearts and a pillow cover. 
Isn't it perfectly adorable?

Pitter and Glink whipped up these beauties with vinyl stencils and ruffled fabric.
Could you really 'love them any more'?  I don't think so!


Live, Laugh, Love cut out felt letters and used a spray glue adhesive to create this pillow.
004
Did you notice the pillow IS the blog name?  So sweet.

About Blogging Time sewed up this cutie pillow using a bow tie garland.
The red and white color combination is one of my favorites!
This would look so perfect in my daughter's room!


 
This pillow by, My Heart Lives Here, was made with fabric and a computer printer!
I had to re-read the directions...fabric running through a computer printer?!  Yes!


 
Uncommon  created this lovely pillow with a freezer paper stencil.
Such a great scripture and a beautiful pillow!

...Now, if you're really not into making pillows,
how about a Valentine 'pillow' box full of goodies?
Bellarae Vintage gives you the step by step directions!  So fun!

Valentine Mailboxes

Looking for the Valentine Link Party?  Click Here.

It's mail time!
This red mailbox comes out every February at our house.
I display special Valentines from the past years, that I can't bear to throw out!

However...
This year I'm thinking my mailbox needs a makeover.

Check out these mailbox ideas that were linked up to the Valentine Link Party!

VALENTINE MAILBOX (4)
This mailbox creation comes from The Autocrat.
I have never seen such a beautiful mailbox!  Gorgeous!

I love these mailboxes from Over the Big Moon
Love the colors, the initials, the names...

and the love! 
Family members write notes to each other.
Such a fun idea!

And I adore this idea from The Anderson Crew
Spray painted candlesticks glued to the mailboxes--so sweet!


So, watch out little red mailbox...I've got a plan for you!


Keep on linking up those Valentine ideas!

LEGO Valentines


Valentine Link Party --click here!


Got a LEGO lover in your house?
Looking for some LEGO valentine ideas?
Check these out!

Purchase a small LEGO toy and choose a greeting.

We 'click' Valentine.

I like to 'connect' with you.

or how about...

We LE'GO' together!

Print out the greeting and have your child color in the tag.

(I like my kids to be a part of the gift making process.
Plus, they color-in better than I do.)



Tie tag onto LEGO gift.  Done!
(Don't tell my sister-in-law...these are for my nephews!)
 
 
 
Here's another LEGO Valentine we made.Click here.
 


For another LEGO inspired idea,
ask your child to make a LEGO frame.
 
How fun is this?
My son crafted this in about 5 minutes.  He even built a stand for the frame to lean against.


 
Have you seen these adorable valentines with candy LEGO minifigures?

The figures are made using different colored Candy Melts and the LEGO minifigure mold.
Click here to see the step-by-step directions.
Click here for the LEGO minifigure mold.

 
These figures are super cute,
but I really doubt that mine would look this good.
Remember the 'meltdown' we had when making the salt dough LEGO figures?
Click here if you missed that post.  Well, maybe it's best that you don't!


 
I guess we could try making these chocolate ones...

Or, how about packaging up some of these...
candy LEGO bricks?
Click here for source.

 
I guess if we really wanted to get complicated,
we could always make gummi LEGOS...
LeGummies brick shaped gummy candies

after making our own mold!
Incredible!
