Be Mine


These are my big E's valentines for her class this year. I covered AERO bars with the prettiest scrapbooking paper I could find and tied them up with matching ribbons. I had wanted to try this idea for a while now and thought that they'd be perfect as valentines. I did 20 in all and finished them in 2 evenings. Not that I spent the whole evening doing them each time, just that I stole some time on 2 separate occasions to get them finished! It was probably 2 hours work in total, but it really isn't work when you're dealing with pretties like these, is it?!

So cute! Will have to keep that in mind for next year. LOL(your exchange w/ Donna) - my daughter didn't help out much and secretly, I was kind of glad so I could make them like I wanted. Is that bad??? Hee hee

I might be the worst mum ...M helped me make the dough, never saw the cookies baked or iced or packaged before I stuck them into her daycare bag with handsewn valentine's she didn't see either, and a note to her daycare provided to distribute. M will get her cookie and valentine tomorrow . .I figured at 2 and a half it's maybe better if she just has one day of sugar and not three (as I know she would have wanted to eat them as soon as she laid eyes on them). My husband said to me as I was hiding them in M's bag . .." you do realize that those handmade goodies are kinda for the parents, right?"

I get it. But on the plus side I had fun and practiced sewing curves. . a challenge for me.

Thank you for the validation, Koala and Donna! It's not bad at all. I would have loved to have that stuff to bring to school when I was young, so the same must go for our littles! They can help with other things like dishes and vacuuming. ;)
