I do have a new Etsy listing to share with you, but first...indulge me in a little story. 
Last night our 6-yr old son and 4-yr old daughter were getting along splendidly (not always the case) and decided to be Valentines.  Our son made paper Valentines for our girl, then serenaded her with the song "You are My Sunshine".  She was beaming.  I took a small video of the scene, not wanting it to end.  Time refuses to stand still, but those moments make a lasting impression.  I hope they'll remember. 

Now..speaking of sweet hearts, here is a fabric heart envelope I designed to hold little love notes.  It's got a hand-knit pink heart on the front and includes several Valentine cards. 

I was excited to share this listing with you from the store, but it pales in comparison to these:
Sorry, not for sale  :)
Sharing with White Wednesday and Pink Saturday this week.

awww, that is the best story ever!
Valentines is one of my fave times of year because of the memories of those little sweet cards past at school.
Making the little mailboxes to put them in. I agree, kids valentines are the best. So innocent and sweet.

Love your pink knit heart on these.
very sweet indeed.

Thank you Susan for sharing that sweet story! It reminded me of a time that Jim and I went to dinner and came home to find my kids getting along and singing along together as my daughter played guitar! Still melts my heart today!

Your Valentine holder is so beautiful!! You are one creative girl!

I really like our post and seeing all the pretty things. That is a real once in a life time act on the part of the children. I am sure, knowing most boys, he had a weak moment. Take care of the video.
