Gearing up for Valentine's

Besides Christmas, Valentine's day is my favorite holiday. All of the cards and chocolate and roses and jewelry - what's not to love? Just kidding, I'm not that high maintenance. My favorite Valentine's date was actually last year, when my husband and I stayed home, rented Pride and Prejudice, and ate heart shaped pizzas from Papa Johns! I still love jewelry and chocolate though. And roses. Just in case you are reading, Kevin. 

So, when I checked my mail today and found that my sister (yes, another creative sister) had surprised us with personalized Valentine's stickers, I was thrilled!


I already planned on making marshmallow lollipops for the girls' church and school friends, so the stickers will be perfect as seals on the clear bags! 


If you would like some stickers of your own, head over to Autumn's etsy shop - she has many more designs to choose from. 

You will be the envy of all the mothers who settled for Hannah Montana valentines. Plus, what child wouldn't love having their name on a sticker!

OK I am going to order some of these for my daughter for daycare...also do you have the recipe how to do the marshmellow pops...those are so cute!

Cute, cute stickers and I love the marshmellow pops. I have never seen these before. I will be using them for goodies for my little boys Sunday School and elementary school classes. Thanks for sharing.

The lollipops are simple. I stuck large marshmallows on sucker sticks, and then dipped them in almond bark tinted with food coloring. Sprinkles top them off, and voila! The perfect child-size treat!

Thanks so much for the idea. I just bought some stickers. Woohoo!

Very cute- the stickers and the suckers. I can't believe you got your husband to watch Pride and Prejudice with you! What a man he must be! (My husband would A. fall asleep during it B. Whine the whole time or C. refuse all together.

I love Valentine's Day too. I have also been known to send out gobs of Valentine cards following the year's that I neglected to send out Christmas cards. I don't feel guilty about this because sometimes the end of the year can be very hectic and sending a little love to all of my friends and family in mid-February can be a pleasant surprise... I am hoping!

Your sister's stickers (and whole etsy shop) are too cute! We love making those marshmallow pops. Thanks for the reminder. We'll definitely do some for V-day. They sell really well in bake sales, too, by the way.

Those stickers are cute--but I *love* the lollipops! I may borrow that idea for my daughter's preschool classmates.

Thanks!

Hi Kristin,

I found your place this morning and I think I had it up all day as I checked back each time I had a moment between laundry, baking, dinner, and all the other daily things I had to do.

You have a very nice place here ~ so many great crafts and ideas!

There were a couple of ideas that someday I might be able to tackle. I'll be sure to link back if I do.

Kindly, ldh
