I have SUCH a fun craft tutorial for you today! My kids absolutely LOVE these magnet people and they were so easy to make. This would be something fun to do with your hubby after the kids are in bed OR something for you to do to decorate your fridge and surprise him!
The first step is to take the pictures! The best way to do this is to find a solid colored wall in your house. Make sure that you stand the same distance away from everyone when you take the picture...

Mailboxes for

Kristen-MailboxesforLoveNotes-Pinterest

I love the idea of decorating little tin mailboxes and displaying them in your home during the Valentine's holiday.
I decided we should have a little fun during this season of love & give "love letters" to each other!  First things first - each member of the family needed his/her own mailbox!

I found these cute little tin mailboxes from Target last year and quickly realized I was not the only one with this idea.  All the crafting blogs I read had the...
