Valentines Day

 

valentine24

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. I Corinthians 13: 4-8

Valentines Day is a widely celebrated day filled with LOVE, hearts, candy, flowers, and gifts exchanged between loved ones. Curious on how Valentines Day started? Read about it here. How are you celebrating today?

My husband and I have been married for 4.5 years and tend to not celebrate on actual holidays in order to avoid the crowds. I was pleasantly surprised by my wonderful husband – he surprised me with a planned Valentines Day evening out. Unbeknownst to me, he asked my sister to watch the baby and then he took me to Color Me Mine! Oh, I LOVED it! I am such an artsy person and I’ve done   a previous painting project there before, but it has been a long time since then and I was thankful to have this bonding time with my love! The cool part is he actually participated and enjoyed it – if you knew my husband you would know that this totally is not his thing, so I really appreciate the kind thought, planning, and participation.  After we finished painting our projects – a tea cup for me and a tile coaster for him – he took me to a romantic dinner at the Summit House! This restaurant has an old English Inn feel to it and the food was delicious, the wine was great, and the live pianist, fireplace, and amazing views overlooking the city really created the perfect ambiance for a romantic dinner. The evening ended with a beautiful heart-filled card and 3 new lovely pashminas to add to my collection – I LOVE pashminas! I really felt loved yesterday and was overwhelmed by my husbands thoughtfulness – he is not the planning type of guy so this was a big deal :).

My son just started school 3 weeks ago and I signed up to bring in goodies for his class – I am definitely going to be that kind of mom and I LOVE it! So, I made little goodie bags for his classmates and gifts for his teachers. I thought I would share these super easy DIY projects with you. Also, I bought almost everything for these projects from the Dollar Tree – so it goes to show you don’t have to spend alot to put together a thoughtful gift.

DIY Tutorial Steps:

Materials: coffee mugs, candy, tissue paper, medium and large heart doilies, heart sticks, and gift wrapping ribbon

1. Insert the medium heart doily into the coffee mug, with the colored side facing up. Adjust it so that the heart shape is visible.

2. Fill the coffee mug with candy.

3. Write a note on the large doily and take two heart sticks and stick it through the bottom of the doily and into the mug until it reaches the bottom.

4. Layer 2 sheets of tissue paper and wrap it upwards, gathering it right above the base of the coffee mug. Use ribbon to tie a knot and secure the gather. Feel free to tie a bow and/or curl the ribbon.

 

Here is the goodie bags that I put together for my son’s class:

(Buy the items for your goodie bags and make sure they are age appropriate. Fill goodie bags and tie them with a pipe cleaner. Make a heart from the ends of the pipe cleaner, joining the ends in the middle and twisting them to make a heart shape.)

The teachers and kids LOVED their gifts! It only took an hours of my time to put together but the satisfaction of smiles on the kid’s faces and thankfulness from the teachers was priceless. All in all this Valentines Day has been a blessing and I wish a very heart-filled and loving day. Try to bless someone else today and remember we should celebrate love year round – not just on Valentines Day!

I decided to do something different and special today, so no Etsy Thursday this week – but please stop by next week for some more Etsy Wedding inspiration! In the meantime, feel free to LIKE us on Facebook and FOLLOW us on Pinterest for more lovely wedding, DIY, and event decor inspiration!

3D-Memoirs wishes you all a Happy Valentines Day!!

Beautiful short-style wedding dresses!

Love these short style dresses! Sexy! :)

lacedinweddings:

Reception Dresses: So this is my take on them.  Are they beautiful? Absolutely, but if I’m going to spend all that money on that one dress that you dream about, why change?

An alternative may be to have a rehearsal party and wear a cocktail reception type dress then.  If you like the look of a shorter dress, maybe you should wear a recption dress as your actual wedding dress.  There’s nothing wrong with being different.

LOVE

~~LOVE~~

If I speak in the tongues[a] of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast,[b] but do not have love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails.

I Corinthians 13:1-8
