Happy Heart Day

>> Monday, February 14, 2011

There has been a lot of heart crafting going on over here.  We made boxes to collect Valentine's at school.

We did some ribbon barrettes for the class party.  Did anyone else make these growing up?  Well I already have requests from Avery to make some for St. Patrick's Day, 4th of July, & Halloween...just to name the few holidays she could think of that are coming up :)

I made some small heart shaped treats for breakfast Sunday morning.  Monday morning will be too rushed with school and work to do anything super special.  Thank you Larissa, I saw this on one of your posts awhile back and bookmarked the recipe.  Healthy and yummy and we added the chocolate chips like you did.

I made my Avery a messenger bag from Greetings from Knit Cafe.  I made it smaller and instead of a guitar I did a heart. 

I would have loved some better shots but the kids were collecting bug specimens that day and had no time for a photo shoot.

I did make both the kids pajama pants for a little something for Valentine's Day.  Spider man for Jack and princesses for Avery.  I am happy to say that they promptly put on their new cozy clothes Sunday morning and never took them off.  I really am not a fan of pattern sewing but these were made just using a pair they already had.  Soooo easy!!

Last but not least I won a giveaway over at Doodles in Strings.  Christ sent me the pattern for her Seeds hat and the yarn to knit it up with.  I can't wait!!

Wishing all of you a wonderful Valentine's Day and a fantastic week!

Oh, aren't you good. In some ways, I have a lucky husband, as I happily let Valentine's Day pass with barely a mention. I know my kids would have loved those projects, though.
