I've been changing up the color sceme a bit in my living room. Out with the deep reds, navy's and greens. In with the lighter greens and cheery blues.
The artwork that had been above the fireplace is something I had the kids make several years ago. It was replaced with an oversized clock.
I found new throw pillows at Kohl's new kitchen curtains at Target and this new clock at Old Time Pottery (for $29.99 nonetheless!). I used gift cards for all but the clock and the room already has a fresh look to it.
Now if I could find an inexpensive replacement for my outdated love seat!

I've always been impressed by the pictures I've seen of the awesome Valentine's Day boxes made by my friends and their kids. I've typically resorted to a plain shoebox and a few stickers to fit the bill. Ryan has a Yo Gabba Gabba! one we made several years ago, I covered it clear packing tape and it will last until he's a senior in high school. Molly will be decorating her own bag in class which only leaves Matthew needing to bring one to school. Knowing his love for Rubik's cubes, I used some repair tape we found at Target and we created this masterpiece. It was actually relatively simple and turned out super cute. Now hopefully his love for Rubik's cubes doesn't feign so I can use this for a few more years!
