Handmade gifts are so romantic…

If you’re looking for something special to give to your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day… stop looking. Though it is a little work, this nearly free project of a handmade box disguised as a stack of love letter is sure to be truly appreciated and undoubtedly will become a keepsake.

How to Make a Faux Love Letters Box

I know some of you are digging out from your winter blast.  Hope you weren’t terribly inconvenienced and found ways to have a little fun, relaxation, and make a few memories.  We, on the other hand, missed the snow and had sunny skies on Saturday and a sunny lunch hour today as well.  Perfect for venturing out on the ice shelf and snapping a few frozen pictures along the big lake.  What a great start to my week!

I hope your week is already off to an extraordinary start, too!
Thanks for coming by!

I’m so glad you’re here….

Project Inspired Link Party goes live every Monday night at 8 Eastern.

  1. Diane, thanks so much to you and the ladies for hosting! We are still trying to dig out from 30 inches of snow!! Am so ready for spring. 🙂 Hope you have a happy week!

    • I cannot believe you got 30 inches and we had sunshine!! CRAZY!!! Hope things are back to normal for you now. 🙂
      All the best for an extraordinary weekend, Cindy!

  2. Thank you Diane for your 155th Project Inspired Party. A pleasure to visit and join in.

    • Joy you are so sweet and I love seeing your bright smile at our party each week! {{hugs}}

  3. Hello Gorgeous! Thank you for hosting such an amazing party. I would love it if you would stop by our party that starts Monday @ 7 pm and goes until Friday @ 7 pm. We pin and tweet everything! Have an fabulous day! Lou Lou Girls

  4. I hope you are surviving all of the nasty weather my friend. I heard another storm was on it’s way last night? We had a little ice/snow storm over the weekend and frigid temps. I’m ready for Spring now!
    Thank you for hosting and blessings to you Diane!
    P.S. Do you really comment on every single link in this party? You are amazing!

    • Patti… NO!!! It is entirely impossible for me to comment on every single link. We are a team and take turns sharing the responsibilities. This party has grown sooo large. It’s a blessing but also now less personable unfortunately.

      I cannot believe how cold and snowy it was for you while we were enjoying sunshine… albeit a very cold and sunny day. It looks like more weather is coming along the coast and we’ll miss it again. Whew!!! I think we had enough the past two years or so to last a LONG time! 😉

      Hope your week has been super blessed!
