Crafts and Parties, it’s what I live for! 

As February rolls up, I get all crafty. For Pete’s sake I used to own a craft store. Anyways there is no better place to craft than with my mom. She sews ALL THE TIME or paints and just being around that crafting spirit inspires me. So with the help of Pinterest I made this awesome heart pillow and KISSING BOOTH!

This kissing booth cost me $2: Box was Free, $1 for the sparkle pink tissue paper and $1 for the heart plastic goody bags that I cut up and taped it on. It may be ghetto, but the kids don’t care and it makes for GREAT PICS! Just perfect for the upcoming V-Day party!

Valentine thoughts and decorations. I am BIG on holidays. Growing up my family didn’t have TONS of money, but holidays were ALWAYS celebrated…mostly with hand made decorations and small gifts. I LOVED IT! And so I like to continue this tradition with my kids. I love Valentines, and I love my Valentine. Since he’s not here in Utah YET, I like to do many crafts with the kids so they don’t miss him.
So with a bunch of cut out hearts and crayons we started Valentine tradition #1: showing love towards our family. I had each kid write on a heart for each person in the family, what they love about that person! The big kids took this seriously and WENT TO WORK!

After much dedication making so many hearts, we were unable to put them on the walls and do a heart attack, which I originally thought would be AWESOME! In our own home we will do that.

Now the next tradition I love is having a Valentine Party! Which I have done for many years, especially when I did Mommy/Happy Schools or with neighbor friends. So we got together with my HS friends and everyone’s kids and had an AWESOME PARTY! Mikell’s house was a perfect place and my big kids were big helpers.

A kissing booth was a must to bring, along with the cloth banner! I think the Moms had more fun taking the pictures than the kids did! My favorite is when we tried to get Braddock to kiss Miss Evee and she kept leaning away, but he got her! They will date one day…they will.

Valentine Party turned our great. We decorated cereal boxes to make a Valentine exchange box. We had so many YUMMY goodies! The party was a success!

And more than anything I love to CRAFT with kids, I don’t always have the patience for it, but I still love it. We did Iron-on shirts with crayons and sand paper…BOOM crafted! The kids loved it and so did I!
