Love in a Jar gift idea

** Dear Husband -- Please STOP reading and delete this post from your inbox. I LOVE that you follow me via-e-mail but this is part of your Valentines gift! If you do keep reading this...please act surprised on Valentine's Day. Thank you! **


And now...for everyone else...

Love in a Jar
Credit goes to Tracey at My-CreativiT. This is the 2nd time she's inspired my crafting! Here is her take on the project:

She has great ideas posted on her blog for date nights. We have two small children so we weren't able to be as spontaneous as her (I LOVE this idea, but without Grandparents close by it would take more planning than spontenaity. An idea for an empty nest day.  drive, check out the sights, and stay overnight wherever we stop).

dollar store jar

all scrap book paper pieces
small rubber band from a newspaper

added a pocket to the back with some
blank hearts so we can add
to it as we think of more ideas

ignore the mess in the background
the kids were making their own
Valentines at the same time
precious memories :)

  5. I love romantic ideas like this. My husband always asks what I want. I saw something homemade/handwritten to know that I am loved. He doesn't get it. Maybe he will get a clue if I do this for him! LOL! Thanks for linking up at my Pin Me Linky Party.

  6. I so love this...everything about it! The dollar store jar to the gorgeous scrap book paper to the great activities in the jar....Just love it! I'm so glad you shared this at Loving Valentines Day!
