Well...we just received Callie's class list for Valentine's Day cards. And if you know me at all, you know I'm totally anti-commercialism and would NEVER buy Valentine's Day cards, especially not ones with characters on them. Thus, snow day (actually -4 degree day) becomes get-crafty-with-Valentine's-Day-cards day.
I'm not leaving the house today. In fact, I probably won't change out of my jammies today, and neither will the girls. So, we're making due with the supplies we have on hand. We've got a handy-dandy printer, some very old (purchased while I was in college, but never used up) white linen paper, a heart-shaped stamp and red stamp pad, some little jewels for embellishing, whatever glue we have on hand, and leftover envelopes from who knows what. Just the right ingredients for sweet (and simple) V-Day cards.
Callie got through her list very quickly. She has impressive penmanship for a five year old. Quite a bit better than her Uncle Nick, even. ;)
