I adore Valentine’s Day. For me, the joy comes from the colors, candy and celebrations, not from so-called “romantic” things like creepy silk boxer shorts, cheap wine and heart-shaped diamonds. No thank you. I’m more about the beautiful shades of pink, red, and all the Crayola colors in between (remember “Burnt Sienna”?). And the candy, my goodness, the candy. Heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, gummy hearts and lollipops are some of my favorites.
I love Valentine’s Day celebrations like the ones we had in elementary school. Good, clean fun with crafts and sugar cookies and Valentine’s for everyone. This year we’re having a tea party for the kids and the theme involves one of the cutest Valentine ’s Day candies on the market, Sweethearts (aka conversation hearts). Those chalky little cuties inspired me to create this free 5″ x 7″ printable, which I hope you print, frame and enjoy next to a big dish of the real thing.
I had so much fun painting signs last weekend. I’m sharing four signs I painted and I’m including the files you can download and print (I like to email files to Office Max for engineering prints), trace using graphite paper, and paint.
This first sign, shown at the beginning of this post, is a 28″ x 16″ heart with arrows. Simple, easy and sweet. Click here to download the PDF for printing.
These next three were designed to fit a piece of 31″ x 5″. I picked up several pieces of an old picket fence and love the way the shape of the fence serves as a directional arrow. Here are the files for these three signs:
