14 Valentine's Day DIY Projects and Free Printables

I want to thank you so much for your kind words and support on my mental illness story. It means more than I can say, and warms up my heart. I know how it may sound- somewhat insincere, easily said. I don't know you, you barely know me. But I'm convinced that warmth, kindness, and support can go through our screens. Believe it or not, my thanks are heartfelt. Reading your comments brought tears to my eyes and comfort to my soul. Thank you so much for taking the time to think about me. I'll be re-reading your comments and replying to each and every one.

Anyhow, Valentine's Day is coming up! While I think that being in love is probably the most wonderful thing on earth, I've never been a big fan of Valentine's Day. Perhaps that's because I grew up in France where it's not a very esteemed holiday.

But blogs made me change my mind. Valentine's Day is what you make of it, and what could possibly be wrong about celebrating love in your own way? I mean, look at these free printable matchboxes! They're irresistible.
