So I love holidays every holiday. 4th of July being my favorite mostly because it is the start of summer, I can be at the beach, the days are long and the sun is warm. 4th of July means summer is just getting going and you can still make plans for summer and not feel like you’ve missed the whole season. I guess that is why I was a born on a holiday. I’m a Valentine Birthday Girl. Now that I have kids of my own I will admit I love making valentines with them.
My love hate relationship with Pintrest goes as follows I love the juices that get flowing when I mindlessly scroll page after page sometime just wanting to see it all the way to the bottom. I hate Pintrest as it will keep me sucked in making me miss TV shows, phone calls and other things that happens in the house after the kids are asleep and sometimes when they aren’t. I will say Pintrest can be a hell of a good resource, but has been known to put even a good mom into crazy mom status trying to just keep up with hosting a party that is over the top pulled from Pintrest.
This year, thanks to the new no candy at school rule, we’re doing stamps. I don’t actually think it’s a new rule but the first time I’ve paid attention. God bless fellow bloggers like Plunky Momo I don’t have to start from scratch. We found the stamps and I just wanted the tags.
Made these yummies for the teachers and neighborhood friends and valentines. The totally easy recipe is thanks to Sprinkle Some Sunshine.
I have also over the years made the following. They were all on the easy side and always get a smile. The sunglasses were a hit, the teachers loved the large ones.
One year I also did one with play-doh. Don’t have any pictures but here is the link for the adorable print outs thanks to Random Thoughts of a Supermom!. Put them on sticker paper and BAM Valentine’s were done!
In any case, happy pinning, and if you want to follow my love hate relationship follow me on Pintrest.
