My friends at Martha Stewart were kind enough to send me a package of beautiful Martha Stewart craft goodies so me and the little ladies could get our craft on and make some Valentines. I know it’s a little late to get started on your own cards now (you didn’t forget, right?) but here’s a link to all the Martha Stewart Craft stuff so you can get a jump on upcoming holidays. She makes the most beautiful papers, punches, stickers, and glitter, glitter, glitter plus all the tools you need to craft to your heart’s content!
I had every intention of having them make homemade Valentine’s this year but our vacation to Aruba (which I’ll tell you more about soon – I promise!) sucked some crafting time away from us. (Not complaining! We needed that vacay. Badly.) So alas, we ended up doing store-bought Valentines for their classmates because you know, sometimes you just don’t need to make yourself crazy in order to keep up with the Joneses.
But the prince of our lives — Daddy — deserved the real deal glittery handmade goodness so a couple weeks ago, me and the ladies sat down and colored, glued and glittered some happiness for him. Obviously, I can’t reveal all the details — since we’ll give them to him tonight — but I’d love to show you some glittery close-ups.
Aren’t they so pretty? I just know Pablo will love them.
Wishing you a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
