A Room Full of Hearts

I woke to a roomful of hearts this morning…decorating compliments of two young boys. No wonder they couldn’t sleep last night…they were so excited to hang up the paper hearts they made. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Through The Eyes of a Child

It’s amazing what you can see when you look through the eyes of a child. It hadn’t occurred to me that someone would check more than one box on the “Valentine, You Are” cards we introduced this year. When I asked Thomas about checking all three he replied “I did that on all of them, because my friends are funny, nice and cool”. Note to self, I need to add “All of the Above” to the list next year. Have a great Valentine’s Day!

Surprising Results

I just finished packaging more Valentine’s Day cards for kids to ship tomorrow. I am a bit surprised by the best sellers. Not that they aren’t all adorable – you know I can never choose only one favorite – its so unfair – but the best sellers were the Dump Truck, “You are Loads of Fun”, The Super Hero Cape – “Hope Your Valentine’s Day is Super” followed by The Guitar “Your Rock” and The Owl “Your A Hoot”. I guess mom’s of the boys like me have been waiting for a good option to hit the market!! We added numbers to the cards to make it easy to mix and match. Don’t worry if you missed the opportunity to order, we will have them available next year too!

More Valentine’s Card Ideas

More Valentine’s Day card options – mix and match images for endless possibilities!
Use any image on this format or choose a few! Maybe all hearts, all sports, all seaside, you pick! Also you can use this one in conjunction with the ones below and choose a coordinating image.

Use template above and choose other outdoor or sports images like the other fishing rod.

This would be great paired with more animals or the mushroom.

Love this option and would recommend some with the horseshoe. “It’s lucky we are friends, Valentine”

This would be great paired with the records or record player.

Use this format and include the ice cream cone, candy, lollipops…..anything sweet.

This one can be paired with the shoes or the handbag or nail polish “You are so stylish, Valentine”

Valentine’s Day!

I have always been a big fan of this holiday – giving and receiving Valentine’s at school was so much fun every year. From creating the bag to hang on the back of my chair (remember using the brown paper grocery bags and decorating them with construction paper?) to selecting and writing out each Valentine. I always started with my favorite Valentine in the box bought from either CVS or Schatz Stationery for my best friend.

Even when I outgrew the classroom exchange and graduated to high school and college it was still a favorite holiday. In my late teens my fondest memories of the holiday were the huge bouquets of fresh cut beautiful flowers sent by my dad (no carnations ever as he use to tell the florist so there was no misunderstanding) just in case!!

Luckily these days I have 3 great guys in my life that I can count on to be my Valentine. If I didn’t, I know on Feb 14th there would be some flowers from the one that never let me down, just in case…..

Whomever is going to be your Valentine this year – here are a few ideas to help make sure they know how special they are!

If you are looking for Valentine’s day cards for classroom exchanges, they will be on my blog and Etsy tomorrow. Can I just say, they are ever so cute!
