It is quickly approaching Valentines Day. Hubby and I have a date night... wahhoooo! Date nights are few and far between and therefore highly cherished. Naomi will be celebrating with her friends at school; they are having a Valentines party. At any mention of Valentines, Naomi tells me she is going to be a princess. With a beauuuuutiful dress. Apparently I can be a princess too. And Daddy? Well she tells me he is the Queen. :)
This last weekend we worked on some little party favours for the Valentines party. Pinspiration strikes again: I found this great idea for Valentines bubbles on the Simply Modern Mom blog while searching for children's Valentine gifts. This was perfect because it wasn't a food item (there can be quite a few restrictions about what can/can't be brought into school and what other parents do/don't want their kiddos eating). I get it, and therefore steering clear of food items always seems to be a good way to go.
Plus, the project is super easy. There are complete instructions and free printables on the Simply Modern Mom blog. You just need to pick up some bubbles (I got mine from Target, but I'm told craft stores also have them in the wedding section), some paper, ribbon and glue.
Naomi was super excited about helping me and came armed with her glue stick and a bucket full of enthusiasm. That is until she saw the bubbles and then decided it would be much more fun for us to play with those instead :) So all in all a great project to work on together and then to have fun catching bubbles afterwards. (Dear sweet girl has inherited her mother's under eye bags when she hasnt had enough sleep... and this particular morning she'd had us both up at 4am)
On the theme of Love, I was also able to finish a couple of charity/Project Love hats with the leftover yarn from the Polka dot cardigan. Neither follow a pattern as such - I just made it up as I went along. They were looking a little 'meh' until I added thee crochet rosettes, with the button centers. Hats with flair! :)))
I also like that a little girl has a matching mini hat for her favourite doll or teddy.
Sending you lots of love,
