This weekend has been a whirlwind! We had to take the car to get a tune-up, I went to a fun baby shower and saw good friends I hadn't seen in way too long, I went to the 1st birthday party of one of the kids I take care of, I am working on a big Bella Bunny update, several custom orders, some new products, shall I keep going? I like being busy, because relaxing makes me feel guilty for not doing anything! Here are the pictures of Valentines goodies I promised. I'm glad I'm at least getting them in during the month of February ;)
Here is the card I made for Jer. I just hand cut a heart, sewed it onto the natural card stock, and sewed that onto white card stock. Very quick and simple, but I like the result!
Here are some other cards I made for grandparents, etc. I found the swirly frame image in Google. I hand cut out hearts from red felt, sewed them to white paper, cut out and inked, and glued to the design. I like the bright red contrasting with the black, white, and neutral!
I decided to make gourmet chocolate dipped pretzels! I used both white and semi-sweet dark chocolate. I added chocolate sprinkles, red sprinkles, and coconut toppings. I sorted them into little plastic bags and tied with a ribbon and added a tag. Kade helped with this too, it's a great project for kids!
(I didn't take any pictures of this, but I wanted to mention because it's easy and cute- for Kade's preschool snack for Valentine's Day, we sliced watermelon and used heart and lips cookie cutters to make it fun. I also used the cookie cutters to cut out pink rice krispy treats- yumm!)
Kade chose out Spongebob valentines this year. I only took pictures because I was SO excited and proud that he chose to sit down and write his name on EVERY single one! By the time he was done, he could write his name by himself, without even looking at anything! He was so proud of his work too :)
