v-day mail.

Today at preschool, my students started decorating their Valentine's Day bags for their party. The art table was stocked full with glitter, sequins, feathers, glue, and markers so they could make their bags with their own style. The buzz at was all about what sweet boxes of valentine's they would pick out. (Remember those? In my day we had Power Rangers, and My Little Pony). One little girl whispered to me that she was working with her mother and making her own handmade cards (girl after my own heart) :)


My Valentine's were handmade this year too. Using Martha's template and some cardstock, I created these critter cards for my friends and my swapmates over the weekend.

My V-day Card Swap buddies are:
Stephanie | Light in My Heart
Danielle | Caught Light
Lillian | Unstitched
Sarah | Inoculatted
Emily | E V Love

Hoping some Valentine's cheer comes to your mailbox next week!
