Valentine's Day Goods

Since my daughter doesn't go to school on Mondays, they had their class Valentine's Day party today. I made some cute little Valentine's goodies for her to take (her Grandma is one of her teachers!), and they turned out pretty cute! In the candy bags for her classmates, there are little boxes with decorated sugar cookies. The damask cellophane bags I got at Wal-Mart after Christmas on clearnace for $0.50 for 20 bags, and the socks came from The Dollar Tree.

I used to LOVE Valentine's Day as a kid. Every year, I'd bring all my little cards home from all my classmates and look through them all. Payton did the same today when she got home! :)

I should also mention that this past month I finally bought a Silhouette! I've been wanting one for so long, and I've had so much fun with it. I bought it mostly to use for things in the home decor category, rather than scrapbooking. I love that it can cut fabric, vinyl, and heat transfer. I haven't done anything major with it yet, but I've had a lot of fun practice in th mean time. I used it to mak these cute little Valentine's for Payton's teachers and classmates...and I think they were very well received.

My plans for Valentine's day are to serve my family a candlelit dinner of chesse fondue with potatoes, beef, and broccoli for them to dip. And then for dessert, a chocolate fondue with marshmallows, pretzels, strawberries, and graham crackers. I think the kids will especially like it!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
