Name Cards - Table settings

Mom is attending some Valentines Day thing on Saturday night. They get to decorate their own tables and she is using the chocolate fountain I gave her last year to dip strawberries and whatnot in (as their centerpiece) and then who knows what else. But, I volunteered to make their place cards for the guests at her table...this was the final product. (see below). I will also note for Jim's sake....that this would have been soooo much easier if I had the Cricut ... available at the local scrapbooking store....hint, hint, wink, wink (remember Mother's Day and my b-day are around the corner!) :)

Our Hands - Our Hearts

We made this little picture using our hands, a little paint and some background paper. (and don't forget the frame) :) Want to make one? Just make your hands into a heart shape. Easier to do one hand at a time. Little hands need lots of help. Let dry and add what ever you feel fit.

Valentine's Day

Wow...hard to believe it is already Febuary and that we are getting even closer to Valentines Day! Now, I have to admit, I'm not one of those girls who gets all excited about this day. Mostly, I enjoy it because the kids are into it. But, for me, I prefer being told I love you EVERY day of the year and flowers on a day when I least expect it and not when it is expected! Know what I mean?
I did order Madison a sweet little heart watch from Gymboree. She is learning time and this will give her some incentive to figure it out.

Here are cupcakes we made a year ago for Madison's class.

Christmas Cards

I hold on to least everything that means something to me. Each year I get a collection of cards from friends. Some with photos, some with stories but all with memories and love. I saw on a friends blog recently that she was trying to find something to do with her cards and I thought - hmmm...maybe I should do something to. Each year they just get put into a drawer or put lose into a scrapbook of that year. Seems like they should be displayed somehow. So, I put them in their very own scrapbook - a Christmas book. And like my friend is doing, I hope to send someone a note (someone whom I've recieved a card from). Just to let them know I'm thinking of them. Sometimes the littlest things like that can make a person's whole day!

These are cute little puppets we made which came from the Martha Stewart crafts. You can find her crafts in just about any chain craft store (including Walmart now). Very easy to make and hours of fun afterwards!
