Candy-Free Valentine Inspiration

Magnifying Glass Valentine at dandee.


I know everyone is doing the Valentine round up post but I just couldn’t resist.  I was so excited to have Design Mom, Ucreate with kids, Kidzlist.com, and The Crafty Crow share my Valentine that I had to pay it forward.  Plus, there are so many inspired ideas out there, especially of the candy-free variety which I’m loving as a mom of a toddler.  (Side note: there are 3 from dandee alone – which is why it’s officially my new favorite site, check it out!)

I love the crayon hearts. I love to decorate by hanging things in windows and this has opened a whole new world to me.

Glad you like the idea, they’ll look great in your window when the sun shines through.

Also, thanks for sending the pics of what you bought with the CSN giftcode you won here. I’ll be sure to post them on MPMK’s facebook page.
