Happy Valentine's Day!

I've been busy making Valentine gifts this last week. Some turned out well, and others didn't. And, of course I forgot to take pictures until I got to work today! So forgive the messy background of the pictures, please!
But remember, especially today - when we are celebrating love - that God IS love. He gave you a very special valentine, which is His Word. It tells you how much He loves you and me (John 3:16). So bask in His love today - share His love with those around you - and don't keep it for just this one day. Show your love and tell others how much you care each and every day.
Happy Valentine's Day!

 I got the mailbox in the dollar section of Target. The base is a glass candlestick from Target, which I spray painted. I used stickers and flowers to decorate the mailbox, and E6000 glue to attach the base.
I tried to decorate another box with scrapbook paper, which I had sprayed with spray adhesive. The paper looked cute on the mailbox, but didn't stick well. I was worried that if I used ModPodge it would show on the uncovered parts of the mailbox. (It had a very shiny finish). I will be trying to redecorate that mailbox at some point in the future.

Here are some goody bags I made up for my fellow staff members. I created the topper on my computer and printed it on card stock. I found the cute bug stickers at Michael's. (Again, I apologize for the poor quality of the picture - to top it off, my camera ran out of battery right after this picture.)
