Here I sit, at 10:00 p.m. on Valentine's Eve, having just finished with our Valentines for tomorrow. I had grand plans for projects that I wanted to complete for Valentine's Day this year. Just like last year.
I have some Valentine blocks that are so cute, I could just faint from the cuteness, but they are only 98% finished. My dirty little secret is that they've been 98% finished for two years now. Oopsie.
I started a "Be Mine" Valentine banner, and it's 50% finished. Actually, I started two of them because I was going to give one of them to one of my lucky readers. Now it will have to wait until next year. Stick around.
I was going to make Valentine paint cans . . . didn't even get that one started.
I was going to finish the Valentine chair bags that I started last year.
And do you know what the surprising thing is? I'm still hopeful that all of these things will get done in time for next year. They will.
I will conquer procrastination! Just wait.
Hee hee. I stole that from a magnet my SIL gave to me. She knows me so well.
These Valentines are proof that I do get things done. Eventually.
Even if I don't always get them done when I initially plan to get them done. I saw these cute little matchbook Valentine's at least two years ago, and that's when I bought the templates for them. I finally got around to making them for my girlies this year, and I love how they turned out.
I couldn't resist using this picture for Annika's Valentines. She's such a goofball, and this picture sums her up pretty well. It was taken at the San Diego Zoo.
Here is Zoe at the same place, but I couldn't bring myself to put this picture on her Valentines. It's not the most attractive picture and all.
After I put the girls' pictures on the templates and added their names, I just printed them three to a piece of cardstock, cut and folded them, and finally stapled a treat inside. Easy peasy.
Next, the girls wrote their classmates' names on the matchbooks. I'm glad I won't be there when their classmates rip them open to get at the chocolate and cast aside the panda cuteness.
I don't think I could watch.
