Valentines Mailboxes

This year for Valentines Day my oldest daughter needs to take in a homemade mailbox. So far this is the first year any of my girls have had to create something. For years I have thought that the “Fiesta Pack” carriers from Del Taco would make a darling mailbox for collecting love notes and FINALLY we got to turn them into a charming little “Love Shack!” Our good friends own a local Del Taco so she was nice enough to give us these three carriers.

Even though only one of my littles needed a mailbox I couldn’t leave the others out of all the fun. The girls helped out by cutting fun foam for the roof shingles, glue sticking scrapbook paper onto the box and applying shingles after I applies the hot glue. They picked out the paper and foam colors and designed how their houses would look! 3 hours, and 4 blisters later (I burned myself multiple times and this is why I handle the hot glue still!) we have these adorable little cottages!

And after all the Valentines festivities are over these cute little cottages make perfect doll houses for the collection of clothespins dolls I made for the girls! A sweet little neighborhood just for them!

So the next time you get a fun food carrier be sure to think of it’s next job! Might just become something fun!

    If your home is already in need of a new roof then this is the best time to replace it to take advantage of
    up to $500 in tax credits. Unlike other materials that invite the
    accumulation of fresh snow to turn it to glaze of ice, some distinct metal properties make snow slide on the surface of the metal roof as soon as an ambient temperature rises.

    If your roof is leaky or you’ve recently had a storm blow through and damage the shingles, consider making the change to a metal

    For today’s global companies, based on my research, there
    are four moral traditions on which a successful Purpose can be based: Discovery, Excellence, Altruism or Heroism.
