Valentine Goodies!

I've been busy the last couple of weeks stitching and gathering Valentine goodies and treats for the little ones in my life.





Remember these ... I stitched these up with the idea of filling them with valentine goodies, the black banded ones were for boys and the pink banded ones were for girls.






Here is what I did with part of them ... I filled them and tied them up with valentine ribbon. I also attached a foam heart to each that I had on hand.
   

and here is what I did with part of them ...


I made the puppy heads using some more foam hearts that I had on hand.  I stuffed the fabric bags with goodies and tied it all up making it look festive.  Yes, I intentionally cordinated the fabric bags with the puppy heads.  I fell in love with the fabric ... notice that it says, 'I woof you!'  The theme I chose this year was all about the puppies!

I also did these pencils that I got at the Dollar Tree.  I tied a bit of Valentine ribbon around each pencil. I've already given these out and the children loved them!



And for the man I've spent the last 37 years loving, my dear husband ... I started February 1st putting pink hearts on the bathroom mirror he uses, one for each day with something I love about him written on it.  He appears to be loving it, and I love it that he is loving it!

What are you doing for Valentine's?

  1. Oh Patsy, I love the dog face treat bags and the idea of the hearts on the mirror for your sweetheart! I've been married to my sweetheart for 37 years also.

  2. I am doing the heart with a reason why I love you for my daughter. Each day a new one appears on her door. She is loving it. I think we have a new tradition! As for hubby I will set a festive table and make lasagna and homemade cookies. It doesn't take much to make him happy. :)

    1. Wendi, how sweet to do the heart a day for your daughter. If I had any children still at home, I would be doing it for them as well.

  3. Those puppy bags are just too cute! I'm sure the parents are going to get as much enjoyment from looking at them as the kids!

    After being married for over 34 years myself, I totally understand how nice it is to be with someone for so long. I consider myself very fortunate and I'm sure you do, too. I need to be thinking about how to express it to my husband. It seems that sometimes life gets in the way of me thinking about such things since we still have children at home. They seem to consume our lives. Thanks for the reminder!

    1. Becky, yes, I do consider myself blessed and while our children are adults, we've been blessed with grandchildren that we enjoy showering our love onto!

  4. Very, very cute! Love your creativity!

    We don't do a whole lot for holidays like Valentine's Day, but I think I'll make peach cobbler or apple pie this year for my husband--it's been a while since I made actual apple pie rather than the easy peasy apple crisp. :) Oh, and I have a poem for him that I wrote, just need to find it. :)

    1. DesertWife, an apple pie sounds like a good choice, I'm sure your husband will appreciate that you took the time to make an actual apple pie for him!

  5. What adorable gifts! We have a tradition of eating at a local pizza place that is a bit more expensive than what we usually would like to pay but the food is wonderful and they are never mobbed on Valentines Day. We have both kind of lost the taste for sweets so I don't think I will make a dessert because we will not likely eat it.

  6. This year I actually found a card with the sort of sentiment I like for just $1. Love your method of sharing the love hearts with your husband. I put 52 hearts on the bedroom door for John one year. I was shocked at how very much he liked it. He wouldn't let me take it down for two whole years! I am sure your husband is loving it, too.
