Happy Valentine's Day

Craftiness abounds in this household. The Valentine on top was made by Caroline at her Waldorf preschool - she watercolor painted the big heart then decorated the top with pretty paper hearts. The hearts on the chandelier are the classic waxed paper with melted crayon sandwiched between and the beaded heart in the middle is a la Martha Stewart, from last year's Kids Magazine. We made the beaded hearts with my Girl Scout troop last year, I just love how they catch the light. Over 60 handmade Valentine's were produced by the girls' for their friends at school - the glittery doily heart variety. And I made some giant heart shaped cut out cookies which did not last long enough for me to snap a picture. Bottom pic shows the gifts for the girls wraped in 1940's reproduction fabric that I found at Carriage House quilts in East Aurora (I've just discovered this cute little shop, tons of cute, cute fabric). What's inside these pretty packages? The Long Winter for Alissa, Little Pear for Caroline, and peanut butter hearts for Emily. But best of all are the peppermint nougats - I've only ever seen them at Christmas - I was thrilled to find them with a Valentine theme - love them! Sadly they're gone already, and I can't blame the girls. Must see if I can find them marked down post holiday.
