All you need is love

I was just working on the photo shoot I did on Valentines Day...which reminded me of the cutest thing ever:

Chickie working on her class valentines. She painstakingly wrote each person's name on their valentine, and her own of course. She didn't even complain or take a break. She was in the zone. I was very proud of her as this was no small task.

She came up with her Valentine idea by looking through some back issues of Martha Stewart Kids magazines (she loves those). And then she came up with all sorts of fun ideas in the craft store. I didn't realize how fancy brads have gotten! 


I came up with the cheesy slogan. I'm awesome that way.

Seriously, do the other mothers of the kids in her class hate you? :) you are the awesomest (and I am secretly glad our kids aren't in the same class). I cracked up when I read that she "loves" looking through Martha Stewart-of course she does, she is totally your clone. I love it!!

You know what's funny Beth...I kinda had the thought that everyone makes their valentines these days. I guess I read too many crafty blogs! Of course everyone else in class handed out the little ones that come in a little box of 25 just like I did when I was a kid. But I'm glad we made them is was really fun.

I love those valentines! Chickie is lucky to have a mom who buys her Martha Stewart Kids and helps her make her own valentines. I will be in Nashville either the 2nd or 3rd weekend in March to visit my college roomies. If you want to come out with us for a girls' night, we would love to have you!

Chickie is amazing!

Those are cute. What a creative gal you have there! And a hardworker too with all that writing.

Gretchen and I made her valentines too. (Snail pics with lollipop shells) She did write her name and her friends but was not as enthusiastic about it. In fact on the last few her name was HUGE and taking up a good portion of the valentine.
