Valentine's Day Countdown:5

Until today, I have done identical surprises for each of my two older kids. Today I decided to go a different route. This countdown has turned in to a way for me to get rid of all kinds of little scraps and items that I've been saving for "something" but never actually using (like those little take-out boxes from yesterday).
One thing that has been in my collection for a while now is a little wooden box in the shape of a heart. I have no idea where it came from, but it has just been sitting there, taking up space. I thought it would be a perfect treasure box for Ian. So I added some felt (Sorry, Tandis) and put his name on the top in glitter.
Brynn might have enjoyed a treasure box too, but I only had one. So, I decided to make her something that I knew Ian wouldn't appreciate: a pendant heart necklace. I hand-sewed hearts (cut from saved felt scraps) together, stuffed it with other scraps, and then laced through a ribbon (also a saved scrap). It is a little large, but Brynn likes her bling, so it worked just fine.
Happy Valentine's Day!
