We have decided to get into the Valentine’s spirit here today. My kiddos and I took a trip to Michael’s for a heart punch so we could create a garland for our mantel. My son is very big into crafts, which I love, cause I have to do one at least once a day. It is such a great outlet. So after purchasing our heart punch we walked next door to Lowe’s for some free paint samples. Love the free part! My son actually asked why I was walking out of the store without buying them…he thought I was stealing. Haha. So we headed home to create our garland. I’m sure you have seen similar ones on Pinterest. Our mantel felt a little empty so I added some homemade art. My son and I couldn’t agree on what color to choose. I wanted yellow, he wanted blue…shocker.
