Our Friendship Makes Me SOAR!

My boy is in the 3rd grade and informed me that he was too old to have his photo on his class valentines.  
We settled on this cute airplane clipart, found here.

 He picked-out the 'heart flings' from Michael's.
And don't worry...my boy has been practicing flinging the hearts all over the house ;)

'Owl" Be Your Valentine

Today I'm sharing the kiddos' Valentines for their classes. 
My little girl only has 9 children in her classroom,
so we could afford to be a little more extravagant.
We got these darling felt OWL stickers at Michael's.
The Granny B's cookies were purchased at Sam's Club and were about 50 cents each.  
Little D can't wait to share these with her friends at PreSchool!

St. Patrick's Day Bow

Well, after I made the V-Day bows, 
I thought I might as well be prepared and make the St. Patty's Day version, too.
As a novice, it takes awhile to make these cute bows for three girls....

Supplies for St. Patrick's Day bow:
Emerald Shamrocks (3/8" and 7/8"),  Dazzle Grosgrain in Apple Green , and Emerald Polka Dot ribbon.

Valentine Bows

I have recently come to a realization.
Since I have THREE girls, it is cheaper for me to MAKE bows than BUY them.
I know.  I'm brilliant.

So, here's my first real try at some 'fancy schmancy' bows for the girls.
They are going to look DARLING for the upcoming holidays :)
Thank you to The Ribbon Retreat for their great tutorials and product.

Supplies for Valentine bow:
Cinnamon Kisses Ribbon Mix and Pink Heart Resins.
