Love letters

Jeremiah 31:3
I have loved you with an everlasting love;
I have drawn you with loving-kindness.

You might have seen these around. I first saw this concept on Jon and Kate Plus Eight. {When I actually admired Kate and watched the show for her organizational tips and creative ideas. Anybody else remember when?!} I think she had a Pottery Barn version. I love Pottery Barn, but it's not gonna happen. Earlier this week I saw something like these somewhere in cyber-world, sorry I don't remember. I'm sure if you Google Envelope Chair Backer you can find lots of links and tutorials even.
Through I don't have a tutorial, I will tell you these each cost less than $2 to make. Each one took 3 white pieces of felt that come in the rectangular shape. I bought mine at Wal-mart.
They were super fun and quick to make.
The kids are loving them. Every morning they get a note from Joe or I, and a piece of candy or a small gift. Bethany requested I make 2 more for mine and Joe's chairs. She wants to leave us daily love notes too. {Which reminds me, I have to do that before heading to bed in a minute. There just aren't enough hours in the day.}
I found a little love note yesterday. The snow is melting away and out in the front yard was this reminder from my greatest admirer. . .
How sweet is He?!
