Weekend and Valentine's Day Stuff

So, how was everyone's weekend?  Hubby and I had a wonderful weekend.  Hubby and I took a trip for Valentine's Day.  We went to our favorite little cabin in Eureka Springs, AR.

I had planned on sharing a few pics with you but in my laziness, I used my iphone to take pictures and then it crashed on the way home.  It's up and running again, but I lost my pictures.  ugh!  Oh well!  We had a wonderful weekend anyway.  Thanks to my aunt and mom for keeping an eye on the kiddos.

So, because of work, illness and preparing for this trip, I am waaaay behind in the Valentine's decor department.  I am reusing my Framed Love Note from last year.

E has to bring a decorated box for her Valentine party tomorrow.  So, I bought some scrapbook paper, a heart shaped paper mache box and got out my modge podge.  Okay, so technically I should have let her make it, but I couldn't help myself.  So, I cut and modge podged the paper and she will get to add stickers if she likes.  Wanna see?

Don't ya love the big ole crooked opening I cut for her Valentine cards to go in?  And the way I didn't get the air bubbles out on top of the box so it's all wrinkledy and stuff?  Nice, right?  Have I mentioned that I'm not a perfectionist?  Oh well!  Maybe her sticker placement will distract from my sloppiness. 

Gotta go make a big ole batch of Oreo Truffles for L's teacher for Valentine's Day.  Have a great Monday!



  1. MMmmm Oreo Truffles? DELISH!

    Your cabin looks amazing. I think it already screams ROMANCE!!

    I finally got to your blog award info in my, you are mentioned! :)

  2. I'm so bummed that your pictures are gone...would sure have loved to see them! It does look like a cozy place! Glad you two love birds had a fun trip away...I love Eureka Springs, but haven't been back in forever! Aah...I remember having to make Valentine's boxes for my girls...seems like eons ago! Enjoy your Monday, Tanya!

  3. Oh no. You're crafty and I'm not. I bet we can't be friends. I hate that. Sweet little Amy sent me over here and now it's all for nothing. I think her vday box is perfect--just so you know!

  4. I love it! The cabin looks fantastic - I'm glad you had a great time. Boo on us not getting to see the pictures!

    Happy Valentine's Day!
