Valentine’s Day!

 

Greetings Everyone!

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, I’m trying to figure out what I’m going to do for my loved ones. You have to remember, I have all boys and thou I love them with all my heart…they are boys! They don’t want hearts and shades of pink, and red! They just want candy or cash! LOL

It’s always fun coming up with new ways to give classroom Valentine’s Day candy cards. My 9 yr old Diego, has 30 kids in his class! YIKES! So it has to be affordable and something I can do fairly quickly. Here are some ideas that I found on the internet; however, I’m going to use items that Paper Wishes carries…I’m pretty sure I can find something similar….or even better!

On a different note, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for your loved ones; I like to think that everyone in this world needs a little love now and again.  Besides, making a Valentine’s Day craft is a great thing! Here are some ideas for others:

A small gift for everyone – You can make the day really special for all those who work for you but get little else other than wages. Be it your newspaper boy, your neighbor, your doctor, your babysitter…you can present each of them with a small token gift like a note card (click on link) or a little chocolate box. (click on link) Or share a treat with your colleagues. Creating a small note with a candy on top is a piece of cake! The smile you get in return will make the gesture worthwhile. Plus it will help you celebrate the occasion with those you work with all year long and might just strengthen your workplace relationships.

So get inspired!  Let us see your Valentine’s Day project.

Next week we’ll be doing a Facebook Stamp Challenge! Just a little hint, you’ll want to have the Love Stamp or Ticket Stamp and any of our new paper packs, featured in the 2012 Winter Catalog.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog!
