How was your Valentine’s Day?
Mine was lovely. I’ll tell you, one of the biggest advantages of having all the kids in school is a little thing called lunch dates. I met Dave for lunch – we went to Bonefish Grill and I absolutely loved it. Might be my new favorite restaurant!
Anyways, I thought I’d give you a little view of our Valentine’s Day:
Cookies for L’s teachers
Treats for Valentine’s Day parties at School
Homemade Gifties for the kiddos
I was feeling a lot of pressure from Pinterest to come up with some fancy-schmancy Valentines for my kids for school.
So I rebelled.
(and the kids probably like these better, anyways.)
An altogether lovely Valentine’s Day…
A couple of my beautiful valentines:
My son’s valentines for his classmates (idea and download found here):
Pop-tarts cut into heart shapes:
Easy Valentine Bookmarks (instructions here):
Fun and sweet crafts at MOPS:
Chocolate Lava Cakes for dessert – these were extra lava-y because I took them out of the oven too soon! (recipe here):
A Valentine’s treasure hunt for my husband and I, created by my two oldest children (this was a surprise, and was so cute and fun!):
Hope YOU had a Happy Valentine’s Day!!
This is a project I worked on last spring… and never posted it because I’m not really fond of it! ha ha.
Actually, I didn’t post it because I never really “finished” it to my liking. I intended to cover the whole wreath in rolled coffee-filter flowers.
But rolling those silly flowers takes FOREVER!!!!!!
I dyed coffee filters pink, and rolled them up following instructions from here.
Here’s a close-up…
Then I stuck them in a foam wreath using pearl sewing pins. And I rolled and stuck, rolled and stuck, rolled and stuck.
You get the idea.
Then I got tired, and lazy.
And I decided I was done.
So I just ended up covering the rest of the wreath in white yarn and called it a day.
My words of advice to you – if you want to take on a project like this, buy a small wreath.
we’re celebrating with some
sugar cookies on a stick
and some pretty paper hearts.
And, of course…
raspberry poptarts cut into hearts with a cookie cutter,
and an afternoon movie for the kids. (But I didn’t get pix of those!!)
~Enjoy your day!~
