I know Valentine’s Day has come and gone but I just had to share all the fun ideas I got from Pinterest and actually did.
Valentine’s for Charlotte’s Class
I saw so many cute ideas on Pinterest for making Valentines, but we decided to keep it simple and use these treat bag toppers for the boys and these ones for the girls. They were so easy. I just printed them up, Charlotte signed her name and added hugs and kisses to little baggies and we stapled the bag toppers on.
“Heart Attack” for Charlotte’s Bedroom Door
I saw this idea for a “heart attack” and loved it. It was such an easy thing to do and I’m planning on making it a new Valentine’s Day tradition around here. It was so simple to cut out a few hearts the night before and write special notes on them and tape them all over Charlotte’s bedroom door for a surprise in the morning. She loved it and still hasn’t let me take them down. And I loved getting an extra chance to tell her all the things I love about her.
Okay, so mine didn’t look as great as the one I got the inspiration from, but it got the idea across. A fun, easy way to make dinner on Valentine’s Day a little extra-special.
I love finding new ideas to make holidays special. Check out my Holidays board for more fun ideas.
Children’s Book Page Pennants
Also this month, my friend Nicole and I threw a book-themed baby shower together. Inspired by Pinterest, she made these book page pennants:
My local library has a used bookstore with lots of children’s picture books for 25 cents each and I made some great finds including Where The Wild Things Are, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, and Good Night Moon (in Spanish!). Then Nicole made the book page pennants which we used for decor at the baby shower. And then I scored a couple of them to bring home to add some excitement to Isaac’s very bare walls. If you’re looking for a simple, frugal decorating idea, this is the way to go!
This lemon, rosemary and vanilla home deodorizer is so easy and makes your home smell so good! This one is a must try!
