My Valentine's Day cards.


I love crafts so every holiday is an excuse for me to bring out my scissors and glue! I made this first card for Sam, Abe's nine year old sister.


It took me over an hour to do it, with all of the cutting and pasting but I think she's going to like it. Over the last few days she’s been preparing her Valentine’s Day cards by pairing each one with candy and signing the names of her classmates. I remember when I used to do this. It seems like too long ago I too was an excited fourth grader.


This second one is for my Mom.

This weekend is going to be kind of long, I work two 9-6 shifts (boring I know!) But I'm excited for Disneyland on Monday. Also, I was thinking of doing a giveaway but I'm still debating on what would be an awesome thing to giveaway... I have a vintage purse in mind. Do you have any good ideas? :)

I hope all of you are doing well.

Cute cards! Homemade cards really are something special, it's a shame that most of us just buy them.

Have a good weekend!
