Pretty little things

In honor of the upcoming sweethearts day, I made a few colorful hearts to put on all the windows & mirrors on the main floor (yes, I do get a bit carried away). These are modified a bit from Martha's version, but just as pretty. I used multiple colors between the wax paper and cut them free-hand using a pinking shears. I made another sheet for DD to cut out her own hearts to decorate her room; DH helped her with that little project last night.

Note: this is a great way to get rid of all those tiny little nubs of crayon that find their way to the bottom of the bucket. Also note: do not use your good cheese grater to shave the crayons (can you say, "wow, that's some colorful cheese on the spaghetti!")

Also found these adorable vintage Valentines. Copy them onto card stock, cut them out, and voila instant kitsch! Here is another good site.

Hey, I downloaded those same cards :) I tried to talk O into using them for her class Valentines, but all she wanted was the Laffy Taffy that has a spot to write "To" and "From" right on the candy package. No cards at all! M is too old for such things, and R had to have "Cars" cards.

Great minds think alike! My DD won't use them either...we have another idea up our sleeve.
