Lindsay here . . .
Okay, first of all, can I just make a confession? I just started my Pinterest account. Like last Saturday. And I am already wholly and utterly ADDICTED! I am loving all of the fab teacher ideas that are just floating around, WAITING to be found! (However, like any good Pinterest purist I get very annoyed when there are random pictures of handbags or photos of cats floating around the "Education" section. Wrong category people! Wrong category . . . (You don't have to take my word about how oddly particular I am about things like that . . . just ask Kerri. She used to put bow-ties on EVERYTHING and it drove me crazy. True story. Who ever heard of ducks wearing bow ties anyway?!)
Okay . . . focus Lindsay. Must finish this blog (so that I can get back to pinning!!). I am so glad you all loved the Magic Spoons as much as I did. Todays tidbit isn't quite so educational, but it sure is cute! I am typically WAY late in posting cute seasonal ideas, but I wanted to give you a heads up on a cute Valentine holder idea. Presenting . . . a "heart house"! (I thought the name "love shack" was catchier, but sent the wrong impression.)
Basically, using a large manila envelope, you trim the top into a point, so the envelope becomes the shape of a house. Then you fold the shorter side of the envelope into the inside, to create a little pocket. I step-drew the cute parts of the house and had my kidlets use die-cut hearts for shingles, flowers, etc. This year I am thinking of using some cute heart foamies AND I was able to find bigger, white envelopes - Yay!
Anyhow, the kids just love playing mailman (or woman!) and "delivering" their valentines to all of the houses.
