"we love, because he first loved us." 1 john 4:19
if it wasn't for the Lord's love for me i wouldn't be able to reflect that love into the other relationships in my life. so thankful for love!
in action of my love for this holiday, i made some fun goodies for my co-workers! i can't take credit for the saying, my mom actually came up with that idea herself. but i thought they would be a nice encouragement and treat for them :)
i took some mason jars left over from our wedding and spray painted (with my husbands help because i was getting too fumed up!).
then i made the hearts out of this fabric i found at the fabric store. i sewed the majority of it, stuffed it and then sewed the rest. i have been having so much fun with my sewing machine lately!! i even used the machine to put the stitching on the paper around the message. a hole was punched through the top of the heart and then put twine through it to tie it around the jar.
i scrapped these little fun papers that say 'it's so sweet working with you!' - again, props to my wonderful mother who thought of the idea and i copied her :) i wrote most of it but then stamped the sweet onto some fabric and attached it with brads. i filled the jars with lots of sweet goodies and treats for them!
and there they are! i can't wait to give these to my co-workers! :) i hope they like them as much as i liked making them!!
one other thing i made for our home was this fun subway art. i saw this saying and decided i wanted to make subway art out of it..
hope you have a great valentine's day! much love to you!!
