We make Valentines for Veterans! We encourage all of our employees and their children to make valentines which are hand-delivered to our veterans and are sent to local VA Hospitals. It's a fun annual event and a way to share love and happiness with those who've served our country.

How fun to do things that sweet for Valentine's. I'd love to do it with my two g'girls, but they're having fun at the beach, lol! Thank you for hosting dear and enjoy your Sunday.

I'm totally missing Valentine's this time around, but it's sure fun to see what the rest of you are doing.

Thanks for hosting the party and sharing your lovely ideas! Have a great weekend!

Kathleen said...

I bet she had fun! Wish mine lived closer so I could do crafts with them. I don't know about the glitter though, i would be finding it for days! I always felt bad for the custodians having to clean up after the art projects in school!

Sarah said...

What fun! I used to make valentines, but haven't in a few years. Have plans to do a chalk board valentine this year if time allows. Thanks for the inspiration!

Home made cards or Valentines are extra special. Someone takes the time to create something just for the person. I wanted to share my table and the labels I created.

Maria Lourdes Rios said...

Happy Valentine's Day!!! Love is in the Air...

Jann Olson said...

Hi Alma,

Your lovely craft session brought such sweet memories of primary school and then as a young mother, sitting and creating with my daughter. Your cards, lacy heart containers and my favourite, the sign, 'Love you more' are all so adorable and cozy! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely Valentine's Day.

Homemade Valentines are just the best! Such a creative project. Thanks so much for hosting! Glad to link up!

Laurie Ritchey said...

I always want to be a crafter, but I'm just not good at it. If I made Valentines, I'd have to tell people my grandchildren made them, and then I'd be offending my grandchildren! I love the doilies in the cups, and those heart brads are so cute. Thanks for hosting. laurie

Dining Delight said...
