Valentine's Day Family Portrait in our Maine House

We get crafty around Valentine's Day
If there ever comes a day when we canโ€™t be together, keep me in your heart, and Iโ€™ll stay there forever.

The ground is white, the light is beautiful, so long Winter days and weeks in Maine inspire us to do some fun indoor family portraits.

A long time tradition in our Maine home around Valentine's Day is to get our craft on!

We found this cool Valentine's craft in our Martha Stewart's Handmade Holiday Crafts book. You will never need another craft book for the rest of your life with this one. It's truly inspirational and beautifully photographed. 

These are made with melted crayons and wax paper hearts. I love them as a photographer because I can hang them in my south facing window and the light shines through. Ours don't, ahem, look like Martha's, but we loved this craft anyway. She also has a tutorial on her website for these Wax Crayon Valentine Hearts

Now it's a family tradition to something fun and crafty for Valentine's Day. What are your Valentine Traditions? Show us! #luminatraditions
