And since my kids have been asking for the past two weeks when we can start making Valentine's Day decorations, we wasted no time getting busy this morning! I searched happily through our newly organized craft closet and found a few simple supplies. By cutting hearts out of assorted shades of tissue paper and then gluing them to the backs of white paper doilies, we created these beautiful decorations to adorn our back door.
The impact these few simple decorations have already had on my bleak demeanor is indescribable. Though outside it is still cold, and gray, and very, very windy, there is warmth and joy that emanates from these bright cheery hearts and inside, all is well.
