tomorrow is valentine’s day and evie has been working hard to get her love letters ready to deliver to school. while i did most of the heavy lifting, she added a special touch to each envelope. which, of course, is the cutest part of the whole project.
i’m enjoying the chance to get crafty before we enter the years of wanting the latest disney character on store bought cards. << she’s not going to do that to me…right? the lovable monster theme has been a hit with my little cupid, because who doesn’t love a good googly eye? kim and eris may recognize the heart stamp…while looking for fun paper for this project i stumbled upon a stash of cards from evie’s party in philly. my paper hoarding habit always pays off.
i hope these pre-schoolers appreciate fine art. look at those expert strokes!
one suggestion for any googly eye related projects: use double sided tape, or hot glue. elmers pops right off after it is dry, so i had to do double work to make sure no one chokes on a loose eyeball!
wishing you a day full of pink, red, chocolate, and lots of love. happy valentine’s day!
