My favorite craft of the year, besides Halloween costumes, is valentines for the kids. This is the first year both boys are in preschool, so I had to create two sets of valentines. I wanted to create valentines that actually fit both personalities, so off to pinterest I went. I loved the idea of a rock star valentine for my youngest, who loves guitars and rock music. This was my interpretation of the idea.
Penny Black has them.) Had this been a year when I was feeling normal and not continually nauseus, I may have colored in the hedgehogs. And how perfect to use Hershey Hugs for the treat!
Both of these valentines were embellished with old fashioned rubber stamps and embossing powder. I used to love to craft with stamps when I was younger, so it was kind of fun to rediscover embossing. I used powder I had from ages ago. The stuff lasts forever.
I was also in charge of treats for both kids' classes. We made heart-shaped rice krispie treats and embellished them with some frosting drizzle and sprinkles.
