Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Love Bug Valentines {Bugs and Kisses!}

Since the kids have been bugging me recently (i.e. the past four years), I was inspired to make love bug valentines this year. So I created valentine cards with a few different “buggy” messages that I paired with adorable wind-up flipping bug toys. And because I’m a super nice person, I made the love bug… Continue Reading

The details for the children’s… Continue Reading

Cards for Valentine’s Day Written The Toddler Way

Cards for Valentine’s Day Written The Toddler Way

As I’m picking out and planning Valentine cards for this year’s February 14th lovefest, I thought to myself “What would my child’s real Valentines message be for his preschool friends?” I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t give cute little Pinterest-crafted cards with clever sayings (“You’re toad-ally cool, Valentine!”) and coordinating non-candy gift (plastic toy jumping frog).
