Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is coming! It is my favorite day of the year. It is an opportunity for me to tell the important people in my life how much they are loved. A card, a telephone call (yes, a call, not a text), a simple little gift of appreciation to the people on my “I love you” list.

This year I’m going give goodies to the wonderful firefighters at the fire station that I live near. I have a basket that I painted red. I lined the basket with red gingham fabric and filled the basket with store bought muffins, “Red Hots” candy, red and white M & M candies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies and biscotti. It’s a happy basket meant to thank some great people for risking their lives to help so many people! I hope they will enjoy all the goodies!IMG_1864

 I’m wrapping up some yummy carbonated flavored water in bandanas for my Pilates clients. . Adorable and useful!….When the water is gone, they will have a bandana to use for something else! 20150213_083016

I may spoil the surprise, but my gal pals will be getting darling heart pins. IMG_1281

I purchased ½ yard of black velvet fabric. I sewed a little pillow and pinned the heart to the pillow (the ½ yard of fabric will make 8 pillows). Then I wrapped it all up in cellophane, added a bow, and ta-dah! A. Great. Gift. These could also be party favors for a Valentine party!

These are just a few simple ideas to make your Valentines Day a very happy day!

And of course….Wear red!
