Friends, February is flying. Soon the kids will be on March break, and we'll be getting ready to hide Easter eggs. Mind you, I am a card maker and seller, so I've already had Easter on my mind for some time. Just as I had Valentine's product in the shop as early as January 1. But still, let's slow down, can we? Look at it like this - my hubby reminded me yesterday that Christmas was 7 weeks ago!
Anyway, I still had a blast making some really fun Valentine crafts. A few didn't make the blog this year, but I'll hold onto those ideas for next year. Unfortunately, we can't slow down time even if we tried. This post is a summary of all those projects I did get to, so that you can play catch up if you missed anything along the way. There's still some time left to craft too if you're up for it!
For the kiddos:
Being a parent makes this whole blogging thing way more fun. Why in the world would I be making some of these crafts if it wasn't for my little one. You may find some of these fun-for-kids crafts well worth your time too:
