Color Your Heart Out Valentines!

Valentine's Day is coming up!  It's one of my favorite holidays.  I miss the days of passing out Valentines at school, which I was doing until just a few years ago with my first graders! Luckily now my girls are old enough to start taking part in the tradition!  Last year's Valentines looked like this, with some candy attached.  I went with a candy free option this year mostly because these little crayon packs are so cute!  You could put so many other coloring related things inside here as well!

You can have these too!  Download the file by clicking HERE.  To assemble, print the Valentines onto white cardstock and cut out.  Use plastic treat bags like these, insert coloring related gift, and possibly cut some excess plastic from the top. Fold Valentine in half and place over the top of the bag.  Staple near the bottom edge of the cardstock. 

Happy Almost Valentine's Day!

New Year's Eve

We had a small New Year's Eve get together with a few friends and had a great time.  My husband cooked the whole meal (as usual) so we definitely ate well!  I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to decorate a little for the dinner party, so here's what I put together. 

I went with a gold color scheme since we already had gold chargers from Thanksgiving.  The clocks were either from around the house or purchased from Goodwill, except for the large paper clock which I made using my Silhouette.  The clocks on the chargers and for the wine charms came from The Graphics Fairy.  I hung gold balls from my chandelier with monofilament and it was a really beautiful focal point.  The best part was that all of the ornaments were on clearance!
Happy New Year!
