Hi everyone and Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a great weekend! We had a 4 day weekend with the kiddos- and have been enjoying some nice down time. Plus, we started painting the boys’ room this weekend- 🙂 Well, I say we….what I really mean is I taped off and Mr. Pink painted. We have to put another coat on- but it feels good to start getting things done. Plus, we’ve picked out the crib bedding—now, if we could only pick out a name we all like! LOL
Friday was the kids’ Valentine’s parties at school which Mr. Pink & myself both volunteered at. They went over really well, and at the last minute I decided to make up treat bags for both classes on top of their regular Valentines. When I say last minute, I mean at 11 am and I had to be at the party at 2 pm. 🙂 So, they were not anything extravagant or crazy- but, the kids loved them! I didn’t even take ‘real’ pictures of them–just used my phone.
Here are the ones I did for my daughter’s class. They are filled with notebooks, stamps, little plastic disc shooters, fun dip, suckers, bouncy balls & bubbles.
She has 24 kids in her class- and now looking back I wish I didn’t put stamps in the bags- because although the kids LOVED them, they decided it would be ‘cool’ to stamp their faces with them! (They can always find something to do to make their mothers cringe!)
I did my son’s class second- and felt a little more rushed so I tied his bags with crinkle ribbon and added a quick punched tag. (After all, I still needed to paint my nails pink for Valentine’s Day!)
My Thirty-One bags came in handy for transporting all this good stuff!
Also, with baby on the way I thought I’d try my hand at making some pacifier clips- since they look so easy to make. I made one boy and one girl one…(one’s for a friend.) They were super simple, and I plan on doing a tutorial very soon! They kind of look silly without pacifiers on them– but, we didn’t have any pacis in our house- it’s been too long I guess!
That’s it for today- I will be sure to post a winner from the Blog Hop on Valentine’s Day as soon as possible! So be sure to come back to see if you won!
