The House of Whimsey linked this cool font, which looks even cooler when made into a holiday banner. Easy-peasy...print, cut, glue, string, hang, post (a picture of finished banner on blog, that is).
And for Belle's class Valentine's exchange, I'm bringing these pencils with heart tops- simple felt project, which could easily be glued rather sewn.
Then I varied it a bit. I cut up a ziploc freezer bag for one side of a heart, so I could fill the heart with some conversation hearts before I stuck it on a pencil...didn't have any candy yet, though, and fortunately, my kids still think almonds and craisens are treats!
And now for the Forth File/ Forth Photo Tag from Angi: This is my sister-in-law, Mr. Smarty & I in 2002, maybe? We're in our second apartment in Austin getting ready to go to a cousin's wedding...if you look to the left, you will see the brown wall-I asked our apartment complex permission to paint and they agreed if I promised to paint it back...then when we moved out, Mr. Smarty and a friend had to repaint it for me, while I took care of our newborn...ahhh, memories...i tried to remove the red eyes, but ended up giving us all raccoon eyes...
And, the free manicure & pedicure coupons are still here!!! Please some one use them!
