Digging up some OLD posts about Valentine’s Day

Four years ago now, my sister and I started a crafty blog. My sister in law joined in and even my baby sister for a little bit. But then life got in the way and we stopped enjoying doing it together. Or something.

Anyway, I was thinking about some of the things we made and I really need to get my butt in gear for this holiday. Maybe I’ve gotten old and jaded? Maybe I just find I have less time. I have noticed I don’t do all the little things I used to do. It was a lot more fun making with my sisters, sister in law and Mom. Living on the other side of the country makes it a little difficult.


My Mom has this large tin of sucker molds. We could whip up a batch of these suckers so quickly. In the last year, I picked up 8 sucker molds for myself. There is still time for me to whip some up, right? A few hours during the day when the kids are in school.


I loved when the candies were perfectly inserted in the sucker. You could bite half of the candy off and the other half would remain in the sucker. So good.


I loved these Felt envelopes too.

And I really thought this little game was super cute. I only wish I knew where this ended up.

And lastly were the Danish Woven Hearts. Anything Danish is always appropriate for a good celebration, right?

Honestly though, I am making some special treats for breakfast. There will be some food coloring used in the kid’s lunches. I will be in their classes today for their parties. And I have some books and treats to surprise them with. It is so much fun to have the two boys. I feel so fortunate to have two little guys and my Hubby to make things for.

Wishing you all a Happy Valentine’s Day!
