a-great-catch-valentine

There are only 7 days left until Valentine's Day and I'm back with another easy idea for classroom valentines.  These "You're a Great Catch" valentines are perfect for boys to pass out next week in class. I have to admit that lately with such busy schedules I gravitate more and more to simple ideas.  But my inner craft diva struggles with running to the store and buying a box of valentines (since that really would be the easiest thing to to.)  I don't know why, but I just can't do it.  But, I … [Read more...]

Valentine Link Party

Valentine's Monster Box

I'm normally not a big fan or pink or red, but for some reason I simply adore Valentine's Day and the explosion of pink and red hearts everywhere.  I think it's because (A) it gives me yet another reason to create a party, like our Whoo Loves You Valentine Party and (B) you get to write sweet notes and remind those around you just how much you love them.  It's fun to leave sweet little notes for my kids in our Valentine Monster Box and another tradition that our family loves. Valentine's is … [Read more...]
