Valentine's Round-Up

I intended to post this on Valentine's Day but that day turned out to be unusually hectic so here it is, a few days late.
The weekend before Valentine's day Kenzie and I made Valentine's for her class. She picked out two ideas that we came across and we set about making them with the help of my handy, dandy Cricut. She has recently become very fond of owls so I wasn't suprised when she wanted to incorporate owls into her Valentines. So we cut out cute little owls with the Cricut and attached them to a pencil, making it look like the owl was perched on the pencil.

Next she wanted to make some caterpillars and these had a pencil attached to them too.

I always get a little something for the girls. I found these cute little mailboxes at the dollar spot in Target. I added a little paper, a silk flower and their names to each one. Inside I put some funky socks, headbands, Pokemon cards, a pair of heart earrings and some hershey kisses.

I also made a little bouquet for each girl. Everything came from the dollar store except the hershey kisses. The little pink rosebuds are hershcy kisses wrapped in tissue paper and attached to a plastic stem.

I also do something for Dom, even though he despises Valentine's day. This idea I found online on Valentine's day and decided I had to do it because I thought it was so cute. And I knew even though it was a little corny Dom would get a kick out of it.
I got the idea here.
Again, I got out my trusty Cricut and made altered the beer labels for Valentine's day.

The labels say "Beer in mind I love you", Love Lager, "I love you Beery Much". I also included Studly Stout, Hearty Hops and Ale, Ale for my favorite male.
Now the original idea is to have a variety of beers that fit each label like a stout, lager etc.
but because Dom is joining me in the weight loss journey I put the labels on a light beer instead.
