    Valentines Day has alwaysalways held special meaning to me as my father was born 2-14-1910, although he is no longer with us, we celebrate the day by making Valentines for all our family members, we gather up all our supplies and even the youngest of grandkids get to paste little hearts
    And cutout shapes to paper doilies and construction paper

    I loved waking up to a box of chocolates at my seat at the breakfast table. I am going to continue the tradition for my kids.

    We call it “Pitchers and Catchers Report Day” We are a huge baseball family and pitchers and catchers used to always report on that day (now it varies a little), but after the long off season, we looked forward to the first signs of baseball, and love that we both mutually have…our dinner is hotdogs and beans and we like to watch a baseball movie together…

    My husband has always said that Valentines Day is the guy’s day to spoil his girl. I’ve never been “allowed” to do anything special for him (although every year I make him a card/picture/ or something special anyway). I started a new job on our 3rd Valentines Day together (this year will be our 5th- time flies!). So the day before he made me an oatmeal herb bread, soup and a variety of chocolates all from scratch! I thought it was so sweet and felt like a princess!

    This valentines day is a special one for us because it is my sons first valentines day ๐Ÿ™‚ we normally don’t do a whole lot for it but a tradition we will do with both of our children (daughter 2yrs and son 6mos) is give them a little treat and teddy in valentines day like our parents did for us! Nothing extravagant just something small ๐Ÿ™‚ and hopefully just spend the day together the 4 of us!

    I love ribbon and valentines day! My youngest sons birthday is on valentines day, and he turns one this year! I also love making candy for valentines day with my toddler!

    I love ribbon but pulling the trigger is tough! I wish I had a favorite story. I kinda miss those carefree days of handing out little valentines and collecting them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    My grandmother made layered cut-out heart cookies when I was a kid. I loved them, and I was thinking I should make some for my kids.

  11. Karen Arnold

    My favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is watching how much fun my students have looking at their valentines from each other. I also love making the crafts with the kids. They get to decorate their own valentine collection bags and I get to make one with them as well. The ribbons are so pretty and would make a great addition to any valentine craft.

  12. Debbie

    I have spent all day looking at your site it is WOW! and I love what you have done with the mini valentines books and the ribbons are so cute. Here is my story of my first valentines day with my husband before we were married and had been dating about 4 months, I got him a large chocolate Kiss and a card and he forgot it was valentines day ๐Ÿ™ He felt very bad, and I rubber it in, but he has not forgotten it since and we have been married for 32 years :). Yep he’s a keeper!

  13. Meg

    I went to the hospital to have my first child on the night before the valentine 3 years ago. I thought I would have a valentine day baby but he came out the day after valentines day. The valentines day became the day I was in pain since then. But makes me smile thinking about the day.

    My Daughters birthday is Feb 5th. I have used some of your quiet book patterns to make quiet books for my grandkids. You are very talented and your patterns are the best. Thanks so much for posting patterns and tutorials

    My favorite memory is my freshmen year of college. I got a box from home, it had a velvet journal from my brother, a dozen Hershey kiss roses made by my mom and a card from my (not so sentimental) dad with like 10 bucks in it “for a good meal” I don’t know if I have the journal still, I ate the chocolate, and who knows how I spent that ten bucks, but I still have the card from my dad! Thanks for posting such awesome creative things. Off to work on my son’s solar system page!

    My favorite thing about Valentine’s Day is the sweet Valentines my 3 year old son makes me! I love the ribbon and thanks for the giveaway!!

    Last year my, then 3 year old daughter & I were in charge of planning the snack at her preschool on Valentines Day! We may have gotten a little out of control but we were doing it together! All that was excepted of us was a simple snack & milk to drink. We arrived with heart shaped plates, heart table clothes & napkins & cups & heart center peices, all things she picked out at the store! The snack was all her faves: hotdogs, cheese (cut in the shape of hearts) & olives! And you guessed it, strawberry milk! Kailey Ann & I had made pink cupcakes with heart candies on top, the night before! She was thrilled to pass them around to her surprised friends, served on a red heart tray! She was absolutely beaming as she walked around the tables, serving her friends! It was such a fantastic day! I was so glad I was able to help make it happen & was able to share the day with her! The picture her teacher took of us from that day, both of us with huge smiles, is enlarged & framed! Best Valentines Day EVER!!!

    Every Valentine’s Day, I make each of my daughters a homemade Valentine…writing each a personal message from me about all the things I love about them. It’s just another way to show them that I love them, and how special each one is to me and why. I hope that it is a memory they will cherish someday ๐Ÿ™‚

    Valentine’s is my sister’s birthday. So it’s always been a day to celebrate her awesomeness. And my dad’s little romantic gestures like “I love you” written in snow or placed out in Hersey kisses.

    My divorce was final on the 15th 2 years ago. Last Valentine’s Day, just 7 days before our son was born, my husband sent me a photo of Starbursts that were laid out to say “I ‘heart’ U”. In just the pink ones. My favorite. Plus he bought me Lego. Pretty awesome first Valentine’s.

  21. Carlyn P

    I love Valentine’s Day because it’s also Arizona statehood day! I’m married now, but it was always fun to say “Happy Statehood Day” when my gal friends and I were single ladies.

  22. RetroSandie

    I love Valentine’s Day because I’ve always made pretty things to give away as Valentine gifties! Now that I’m blogging, I joined 4 different swaps and made lots of pretty hearts and extras to send to the bloggy ladies participating. I love sharing and it’s such a sweet way to get to know who’s on the other side of that blog creating!!!! Thank you!!

  24. Nicole

    I was never a big Valentine’s day fan until a few years ago. When my kiddos were tiny I decided that Valentine’s day would be a fun day to celebrate the love we have as a family. Now years later, we spend all day in our p.j.’s, have a special breakfast, exchange homemade gifts, party and just tell each other how much we love each other. I love having a day set aside to show and of course tell my kiddos how much I love them and how special they are.

  25. Chrissie Brett

    I love Valentines Day as ti si a day that reminds everyoneof the loved ones……I send a Valentines Card to my son (he is 34, married and has 2 gorgeous little girls now) signed with
    a ?.
    Every year without fail my husband and I go out for a meal to celebrate and we have been together for nearly 40 years and married for 36!! So it must be love!! ๐Ÿ™‚ <3

    I like Valentines because on this day my hubby and I celebrate our anniversary. We actually got married in November but our daughter ended up being born and we gave the month up to her and decided to celebrate it in the month of love. What is funny about this is that up until 2011 we had been doing good and then my son decided to come early and I went into labor on Valentines. Now we share the month and day with him. Last year my hubby made me a heart pizza which was the best. This year we will be taking time for Alex Bday and just a little dinner for us. Will we change this day I don’t think so. It holds too many good memories for us. It has been the best 15 years of my life with my High School Sweetheart. I look forward to many more with him and our four kids. Happy Valentines to you as well. Thank you for all the ideas that you so freely give.

  27. Hope Russell

    love the ribbons! My bday is the 11th and hubby’s is the 13th so valentines day is the day we take off of work and spend together as our day of celebration. Before it used to be our day now we celebrate it with our littles – making the whole day about them and how much they are loved – heart shaped pancakes, red fruits all day and a Valentine’s themed dinner all in a house decked out in decorations everywhere. It’s all about celebrating our love for each other and our family.

  28. Erin

    I think my favorite part of Valentines day is sending my kiddies to school with their valentines. When I was in 3rd grade a boy I had a crush on made me an extra special one. Oh sweet love… By the way–I love your site! I made a quiet book for my niece–and was devastated when you posted the five little monkeys the day I shipped it out. Priceless!!

  29. Ann Marie Carter

    I would LOVE these ribbons!!! I have been making your quiet book pages for my youngest son so that he will be quiet in Church (maybe)! He has had a lot of fun helping me and watching me make them. He tells me what pages to do next and some of the items I have had to change to a different color (depending on his current favorite color). With him being the youngest of 10 children, I can use ALL the extra help I can get and those ribbons would be AWESOME!!!

  30. Jennifer

    The first man in my life, my daddy always did something special for me on Valentines Day. My husband has continued that tradition with me but most importantly our daughter. I love that he is teaching her that she should be valued, treasured and respected as a woman. She well have such strength and will wait for a man that treats her right as I did. So ALL the great lovey cheesy hearts, candy, red, pink and stuffed animals warms my heart because it reminds me of my memories with my dad, the great man I married and the best daddy to our little girl!

  31. Shanna

    Valentine’s Day always sucked when I was younger and single until I met my husband. It was on Valentine’s Day (5 years ago almost) that he first said I love you. I suspect he still remembers it was that day but I’m planning on making him something special to remind him of that…these ribbons would be a perfect addition ๐Ÿ˜‰

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this site. You are a felt crafting goddess.

    My sister’s birthday falls on Valentine’s Day. That’s what special about it.
    And I love ribbons too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. Julia Timmons

    Last year my husband was out of town for the entire year. He came home on weekends for 48 hours and back away he went. I wanted to do something special for him, so each week of February (even after Valentines), I packed him up a bag with daily treats in it. Each day was marked and I had a funny saying with a soda or a candy or a toy or something “cute” to remind him I loved him! We had so much fun with this! This year I am trying to make a 10-12 page quiet book for my granddaughter. I’ll be using some of your pages and some from other sources. She is only two so the skills have to be very basic. I’d love to have the valentines ribbons to decorate it with! THANK YOU for all you do with free shared patterns and tips!

    I just love your quiet book pages…I am so inspired and obsessed right now. My little guy is 3 and we have a new sister to spoil this Valentine’s Day. We have started a list of the reasons why we love her. It has spilled over and we have lists for Da and all the grandparents, too. Valentine’s Day has gotten better and better as the family grows.
