my house is completely UNdecorated for valentine’s day.
not that i normally do much for it, but still – i’m not a total holiday grinch!
but you all know i have lots of excuses for my lack of festive-ness.

gracie has a valentine’s party tomorrow at school.
i’m a total last minute person – did you know that?
it’s pretty bad.
so we have nothing for classroom valentines.
but we scrounged up some fabric, cut it into squares & plopped some kisses into the center.

then i searched for free printable valentines.
these are from living locurto.
apparently i am the last person on earth who hasn’t been to this site before!
i *heart* it!
we printed them out, cut them up, hole punched them, and tied them to the fabric bags with some pink and red baker’s twine i had on hand.

cute, easy, free, and something finally checked off my list!

    Wow! Those don't look like last minute valentines cards! That's amazing…I would have made a last minute run to Target. Those are MUCH nicer.

    Oh my gosh! How cute:-) I need to make my Valentines for the kids ASAP. Love your idea with the owl ones.

    Were you the one at Blissdom handing out those adorable flower pins? If I'm writing to the wrong person please correct me. I was looking for you if so… I loved them.

    I think it's seriously awesome that you can do THIS as a last minute, spur of the moment thing. So adorable! And those tags? Cuuute! Good job! : )

  23. 23

    What a great idea! Just wish I'd have seen it before I bought those pre-made valentines at the store! (lazy mom)
    BTW – where did you get your blog design? I love it!

  24. 24

    Super cute!! :)

  25. 25

    Thanks for the awesome idea!! I'd never heard of that site before!! We will be working on valentines today. We are experiencing yet another snowstorm so the valentines have to be hand-made this year!

  26. 26

    For a last min project I would have to say it turned out wonderful!!! Your so good! I feel bad that i just bought my kids a box of cards to take to their friends!

    Love this – completely coping you!

  34. 34

    So stinking cute….I wish I could be just a tiny bit as creative as you! If you call that procrastination then it definitely works for you because my girls and their friends (those that receive it) would LOVE those…..probably because they are on an owl kick right now. In fact, my daughter has to make an owl for a school project….got any ideas?

    Thanks – Stacey (the cheney's pen pal family from Ohio)

    lovin' the owls! my daughter is going to be thrilled!
