I wanted this year to be special and have a bit of a different twist. So for the next ten days we are filling out lovenotes for one another. I created a set of notecards for everyone in our family (mom and dad are together!) with the same pattern, but different colors.
Here is how the red/grey set looked before printing
I trimmed the cards and put them in piles for each person. Each night, everyone will fill out a note to someone in our family and set it in their mailbox. (You know, the little tin boxes that target sold a few years' back? The ones that have been hiding in a tote box? yes, those mailboxes. We are using those. Finally! Hooray!)
I want this project to be successful, so I put a card station together with all the cards and some pens. It sits on the little project table, within everyone's reach. Each set of cards is divided upon separate plates.
The mailboxes are sitting on the cupboard just to the left so that they will be easily accessed.
(Mmm. I need to add some names to those boxes, no?)
Here is the whole setup.
We are going to read the lovenotes as a family on Valentine's Day. And then a few days later, I am going to put them together in a minialbum. I already put the title on one of the cards to make even easier! I am excited for the handwriting and the memories that this will record, and equally excited to see what everyone writes and to see the impact of two weeks of kind thoughts at the end of the day.
The printable is available in our new etsy shop! Stop by and visit. You can pick from any of the four colors. Or get all four!
How about you? Have you any thoughts about how you will celebrate Valentine's Day? I would love to hear them! Please stop by tomorrow. We are doing class treats tomorrow!
