Although Steve would probably describe me as 'romantic in a weird way', I do enjoy Valentine's Day. I wouldn't want to go out to a crowded restaurant but love the idea of spoiling each other a little more than normal- made easier this year by the fact that we're both off- yipee!
On Thursday, a lovely friend is having a Valentine craft night at her house. I'll be sure to share anything lovely but so far my thoughts on Valentines are looking like this:
I love this card but as it's in the US, it would never get here on time. Instead, I plan to sketch (by that I mean trace!) my own fox on the front of a card but use the same slogan. That's Steve's card sorted.
For Ben, I plan to either stick or draw a king of hearts card onto the card with the slogan 'king of my heart'.
I want to do a simple photo of Ben covered in my bright red lipstick kisses, again, stuck to a card with the simple message 'A Valentine Kiss For You' to all the grandparents. I think this would work with all ages and would be especially cute with babies.
If you like the idea of making a card, a few other places to seek inspiration are here (kid friendly), here and of course here.
I think this is amazing and am planning to make one each for my boys at the craft night. It's simple yet sweet and the bits I need cost me around £6- bargain!
I'm utterly obsessed with these cake/ cookie moulds after seeing them on Bakearella. It may be a bit late for me for Valentines but when I have time to browse properly, I'l certainly be making a purchase.
I'll update after Thursday, hopefully I'll be choc full of handmade Valentine ideas to share with you then. Please feel free to share links to your Valentine posts. x
