His Banner Over Me Is Love - Year 2

If you follow me on Twitter
then you know this is what I was considering Valentine's Day Decorating yesterday.

(one of my kids did this, I think she needs a new chore)

I knew that would not work so I got busy cleaning and decorating.
Yes, I dusted first.
Then I got out our banner from last year.
You can read about it in this post

We will be going back over the names of God during the month of February and reminding ourselves where true love comes from.



We are using it in our New School Room
this year.
We added beads for fun



Spray painted some frames and made hearts from scrapbook paper


Reused our Book Page Wreath


And reused the sticks from our Thanksgiving Project


I am very pleased with how our Valentine's Day decorations turned out,
especially since we just reused what we had in new ways.


I love that I can see how my girls handwriting has changed from last year to this year.


I think this banner will be around for years to come ,
I am kind of sentimental about it.

Speaking of sentimental this Sunday we will be starting Sentimental Sunday back up,
thank you for letting me take the last two months off.

I can't wait to see what you lovelies have to show me.
Sit Relax and Read

This is SO BEAUTIFUL, Great Job! (and I happen to LOVE the heart in the dust, it is a good reminder that mine isn't the only home with that problem) :)

This is so lovely! Everything about it is wonderful from the heart drawn in the dust to the beautiful and meaningful hearts with the different names of God.
