"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before." President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Our Mail Station for Valentine's Day

I am so happy with how my mail boxes turned out 
thanks to this idea that I came across the other day.

 I headed to the craft store to get wooden circle plaques (39 cents each) and a large dowel ($1.00).  I cut the dowel to different sizes, glued them to the circle plaques using E6000 and then painted them.  Glued the mail boxes to the top once dry and embellished with ribbon and stickers.
 They are now ready to be displayed as well as filled with little love tokens for the next 14 days.
My kids are super excited and so am I.
 Here is an idea if you do not have any of those cute mailboxes. (I found mine at Target a while back)
Turn a  bowl and candle stick into a candy dish or use it as your mailboxes.....they are still super cute and they can hold any love token that just might happen to be delivered from loved ones :)
