Happy Valentine’s Day, my sweets! I hope you had a fabulous weekend full of fun and sweet treats. We had two birthday parties, a soccer practice, a family lunch and an evening at Cirque du Soleil’s ‘Ovo.’ It was absolutely amazing, and I highly recommend it if it comes to your city. Those performers have mind-blowing talent…and I’m quite sure one girl didn’t have a spine.
The final act is a combination of a rock climbing wall and trampolines, and left us with our mouths gaping and hearts racing. Thank you to Oh So Cynthia for the tickets!
That didn’t leave much time for projects, but I was able to make 50 Valentines for my kid’s school parties today. Remember the round-up of free Valentine Printables I posted? I couldn’t get the cute Zebra Cards by BunnyCakes out of my head, so I splurged the $4.50 to have her personalize them for my daughter (worth that much to not have to sign 25 cards!).
I simply printed the file BunnyCakes emailed me, and hot glued them to squares of glittered scrapbook paper. Then hot glued the entire card to a box of Sweethearts (4 for a $1 a the Dollar Store!).
And since my son didn’t inform me until Friday that he needed a decorated box and 25 Valentines, I was forced to come up with something on my own, and quickly. He’s almost 10, so anything too cute or sweet was out…and definitely nothing that indicated affection (“Gross, Mom!”)! I found a box of suckers in the Bridal aisle at Michaels and thought the pink and red would work perfectly for Valentine’s Day.
I just tied Key Tags (from office supply stores) to each sucker with ribbon. I also covered a shoe box in red and white striped wrapping paper for him to decorate. Valentine’s Day is simple for him, as it’s still just about the candy!
Simple, sweet and thoughtful.
We’ll stay in tonight and make a fun dinner together (heart shaped pasta on the menu). What about you guys? Special plans for the evening, or did you celebrate this weekend?
