Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, but you still have time to whip up a few of these DIY Conversation Heart Pillows
Well, hello there my friends.
It’s been too long…I’ve missed our ‘chats’!
Without going into detail, I can honestly say that we are just coming out of 10 of the darkest days of our lives. It was one of those times when it’s all you can do to put one foot in front of the other and keep on going…which is what we did and are at, blessedly, at the other end.
I share this with you because a) I know there was a dramatic radio silence at this end and b) to remind us all that there are folks you see at the grocery store, at the office or waiting for your table who are carrying an incredibly heavy burden, though invisible, which is making it difficult for them to put that one foot in front of the other. But yet, they are doing it.
It was a stark reminder to me that I need to redouble my efforts to treat EVERYONE with unwavering and genuine kindness and gentleness. We just never know what burdens our fellow humans are bearing.
So, with that out of the way…let’s talk about these fun and relatively easy DIY Conversation Heart Pillows…perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day.
I’m not sure what the genesis of these pillows was…hmmm…for some reason I just felt the need to make Conversation Heart Pillows. I have seen others out and about on the googler machine, but I wanted mine to really look like conversation hearts…with straight sides.
I am sending these pillows to our daughter for a Valentine’s Day gift, so I put on one of our oft-used mantras, as well as one of my favorite terms of endearment as the messages on the hearts.
If you need some prompting for Conversation Heart messages, here’s a fun list.

I will describe how I made these pillows, but I also have a video that is at the bottom of the post.
Here’s the DIY Conversation Heart Pillow video for the visual learners out there:
My posse follows me throughout the house. Flora needed to jump on the bed just as I was taking photos…once I obliged her with a photo and ushered her off, Peep decided she needed her moment in the spotlight.
