If you know me you know I live for traditions and all holidays.  I will seize any excuse to decorate, buy cute matching outfits and celebrate.  I'm sharing our traditions for the season of love however time is flying so I'm not sure how it's almost the end of February.  I feel like Valentine's Day was just yesterday.

Valentine's Day Crafts

Since I was a little girl my mom and I have celebrated Valentine's with 14 Days of Love.  We would exchange small gifts in little mailboxes leading up to Valentine's Day.  We've continued that tradition with the girls and it makes my heart oh so happy.  I do buy a few gifts but I also try to make something personal from the girls to my mom to make it extra special.  Since we've been doing this for years and years it can be hard to come up with new ideas that I haven't used before.  I wanted to share these ideas with you because they are sweet and very simple to do.  I had all the supplies at home minus the plate so hopefully you do as well.
