Love is in the air!

Being in the middle of January, things are pretty boring around here. Yesterday, I decided that it wasn't too early to get ready for Valentine's day. :) I looked around my house and found all of these things just waiting to be made beautiful - except the tray which was on the Christmas close-out at Wal-Mart. It's really fun to throw this pink stuff in with the turquoise! Brightened things right up! 
All of these boards are for sale: the price is below each one. 
$8.50 ~ 1 available

I did two versions of this one, and I'm not sure which I prefer. 
$10 ~ 1 available (But I can make a similar one if requested)
 This one started off on a white board, with the lettering in pink. Jordan decided that it was too bright, and suggested I throw some stain on there. Um, yea. Not the best look. I was a bit broken-hearted at all the time I'd spent working on it, just to have it messed up. (Jordan felt pretty badly, too.) So I went to work pulling off the pink lettering, and this is how it turned out. I decided that I actually like this look! :) And so, it stays!
$9.50 ~ 2 available
This tray was calling my name back in December, but at $17 a pop, I didn't even consider it. But the clearance price was fabulous, so now I own 3! :) I think I'm going to put it up above my cabinets. 
$7.50 ~ 3 available 
I also did two versions of this one. I think it's my favorite of all of them. I love the plate, and it will go up above the cabinets, also.
$7.50 ~ 4 available (But I can do similar if requested. I just can't get the boards anymore.)
This one can hang anywhere; the ribbon is pink with dark pink stitches and just pulled it all together. I loved it! I need to go out and get the rest of my Valentine stuff now!
