A start on my Valentine decor

Valentine's Day is a big day in our house. It's not only the day that we celebrate how much we really love each other as a family, it's a day to celebrate my husband, because IT'S HIS BIRTHDAY!

So, I always try to "do Valentine's" in our home. I always decorate...
(like I would pass up a chance for that!)
and try to make everything nice for him on his birthday.

I'm getting an early start with the chalkboard that lives above my cabinet area.

I LOVE this bee graphic from The Graphics Fairy

I love these little Valentine message hearts.

What is more "Valentine" than those things?? I remember getting those every Valentine's day as a kid.

So I thought I'd combine the two, since I'm not really wanting to display the festive color scheme over my cabinets.

This is what I came up with!

I love the way it turned out! I used EcuyerDax font for the "MINE" part of this artwork.

 I've still got to add some color up there... I'm thinking pink and white this year...

If you have a chalkboard in your home, this is a really fun Valentine graphic to use!



  1. Umm, that is awesome! I love it.
    Girl, you have such talent! I am going to email you some linky parties you have GOT to link up with.

    Happy Friday!

  3. LOVE this! Saw you over at homemaker on a dime and thought I'd come check it out. Did you make a stencil or do that all free hand?
