    I love to show off my valentines. All of the fabric ones I made. some are candy boxes and some are paper ones my grands have made. The booklets on the bottom shelf were made by my mom and my younger grands.

    The crossstitch picture my mom made last year.

    The victorian hearts I made the hearts and my mom decorated them with old jewelry and trims.

    The cards behind the red heart were made by my two grandsons Jake and Joe when they were 3. They are 12 now!

    The hearts in the embroidery hoop were made my aunt Anna years ago. She passed away from cancer at the early age of 34 leaving two little ones and my uncle. So this is special to me.

    I dont have these out but thought you might like to see them also. I make these out of velveteen. It is stretchy and allows me to get them really tiny. The smallest one is 3/4". The largest one is 1 1/2".
