Chalkboard Conversation Hearts

My first Valentine's Day post of the year--finally!  
I don't know why, but I am having such a difficult time getting back in the swing of things.  I guess the fact that my hubby is traveling A TON, plus Little Man keeps getting sick doesn't help.  Getting a project completed has been absolutely painful. Hopefully we'll get back in the groove very, very soon.
Now I would like to introduce you to my chalkboard conversation hearts.  Who doesn't love conversation hearts?!  And how about the chance to write your own little messages.  Then erase and write another.  And another.  
It all began when I discovered THIS red and pink chalkboard paint at JoAnn's last week.  I had long mourned the face that chalkboard paint was only black, but little did I know!  I quickly took both of these home with me.
I also found these wooden hearts at JoAnn's, and I bought the last three that they had.  
I took out the jute and gave each side of the hearts 2 coats of paint.  (Please don't judge me for my messy painting... it was late at night, and I was rushing!)  I quickly decided to paint the hearts on wax paper instead of the paper plate to keep the hearts from sticking.
Then I got out my chalk and started to write some lovey-dovey messages!  
I added the jute back through the holes and started hanging the hearts around my house. I decided to add some ribbon bows to dress them up a bit.  Because I ended up with 3 hearts, I decided that each member of our family can have a heart.  We can write messages to each other and leave them around the house!
Hopefully this heart will help my hubby lighten up while working in his office.  He's a bit of a work-a-holic!

 But they sure do look cute hanging from the knobs of my little bench.

Or from our little office organizer next to our front door.

I left this heart in a really obvious spot to be sure that Mr. Daisy would come home, notice them, and tell me how much he loves them!

 I'm looking forward to writing little messages to each other again and again!  Don't you love chalkboard paint?!

Thanks for being here and thanks for reading!
