It's the little things and $3 that make a craft project to celebrate Valentines Day

Valentines Day is this week but Ott, E and I have been celebrating each day this month due to this little craft project I made. It's not uncommon for Ott, E and I to write notes or e-mails to each other, but with the help of a dry erase marker we have been having lots of fun writing down what we love about the other person.  Each morning I write something I love about him and place it by his nightstand. Each evening he wipes off what I wrote and writes something he loves about me and places it by my nightstand.  It's been fun and sometimes funny, but always something new and a daily reminder about the little things that mean so much.  
And this little craft project was easy and cheap to make after a quick trip to the Dollar Store and $3 in supplies.  I bought a 8 x 10 frame, a package of Valentines Day Stickers and a Dry Erase Marker.  Then on a piece of white paper you print "I love you because:"  Decorate that paper with stickers and slide behind the glass in the frame.  Then simply take a dry erase marker and write on the glass what you love.  It's easy to erase and use again and again.  And in case I haven't told you before Ott, E does make the best pancakes!!!
