Valentine's Day decor

I love all holidays and I love to decorate for each one. I can't wait to own a house one day so that I can decorate it the way that I want to. For now I'll stick to decorating my parents house for the holidays.

Valentine's Day is in 14 days and I put up the decorations this morning before I have to head off to work.

I went to Hobby Lobby and bought these cute little wooden hearts and I just painted them

I also painted a canvas last year and I am using it again this year to decorate!

On Pinterest I found this awesome blog that had a printiable banner...I was very excited!
Here is the link

So I printed off "Be Mine" with a heart in the middle and I printed off "Love"
Here they are..

I am SO pleased with how they turned out!!

I just cut the triangles out and taped them to construction paper.
I used pink, red and purple (Valentine's Day colors of course!)
Then I hung them on the mantel...we have two. Which I LOVE!
That's all I have for Valentine's Day so far. I'm sure I'll add more.
On another note I am way too excited to give Matthew his Valentine's Day present!! I went on my day off last week and bought everything and came straight home and put it together.
We usually wait until the end of the night to exchange our gifts but I am not sure I'll be able to make it throught dinner and a movie (our Valentine's Day tradition).
What are your Valentine's Day traditions? I'd love to hear about them!
