DIY on a Dime: Valentine’s Day

The DIY on a Dime: Great Gifts series was such fun to put together. It got my creative juices flowing and helped me over a rough spot at the holidays.

Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to love on your family and be a little goofy. I have fond memories of my mom doing small, simple things that really made the day special. Starting next week I’ll be sharing some new ways that you can share the love at home, including frugal gift tutorials, free printables, and easy recipes to help you spread the love at home.

  1. Looking forward to it!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
