No Mess Valentines

Happy Valentine’s Day Eve! Here we are and I haven’t done anything for the holiday other than the bare minimum for preschool (add some valentines to the grocery pickup order + find the same sock hop dress from last year!) and clean the house for a play date we’re hosting tomorrow. If you need a… Continue reading No Mess Valentines

Love Week

It’s the week of love! Happy Valentine’s Day Eve 🙂 My parents visited over the weekend and Amelia loves nothing more than the undivided attention and fun games that they come up with – and I love nothing more than escaping for a date night!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day! Any day I get to celebrate with chocolate, handmade crafts, and kisses, is a good day. Yesterday we had a valentine play date at the house; I kept it super simple with a non-messy craft for the babies and chocolate for the ladies. I couldn’t decide on a “craft” up until the… Continue reading Happy Valentine’s Day!

Blowing Kisses Valentine + More (No Mess!) Handprint Valentines

But even after my librarian days but pre-motherhood, I couldn’t resist decorating for seasons and holidays, especially valentines. Now that Amelia is here,… Continue reading Blowing Kisses Valentine + More (No Mess!) Handprint Valentines

DIY Valentines: Hand Embroidered Cards

Only 9 days til V-Day… Valentine time again! This year I gravitated toward the idea of grownup-friendly hand embroidered cards as valentines, so I spent a couple hours last weekend going to town.  I used the same technique that I learned a couple years ago when I made jumbo Halloween cross stitch posters, just on… Continue reading DIY Valentines: Hand Embroidered Cards

Owl Always Love You… And a Happy Valentine’s Day Eve!

Happy Valentine’s Day Eve! I stitched up this cute little Valentine cross stitch and sent it toward my parents just in time for V-Day.  I popped it in a 4 x 4-inch frame and left the glass out so you can see the texture.  Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery strikes again!
