Homemade Valentines...

Every year for Valentines Day, I make my kids Valentines for their classmates.

Instead of sending out Superman or Hannah Montana, we send out

Jex and Stella.

This is what we came up with this year: (Front) sent to mpix.com my favorite printing site.  They will be shipped to my door in a 4x6 size.

Back:  I made these in photoshop and put 3 on an 81/2 by 11. I will print them, cut them, and paste them on the back of his picture.  Then... we will add a cute bag of treats.

Now, Any good ideas for a Valentine Mailbox?  That is the project for Jex this week.

I haven't commented in a long while. But, I am still here reading every entry. And... still wishing had a small portion of your talent. LOVE the Valentine's! I have asked for photoshop for my birthday. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

BTW, Tessa is SO beautiful. Congratulations.

Awesome idea about the valentines. I loved Stella's last year too. Very creative. For Brandon's mailbox, I'm just covering it w/ red wrapping paper and letting him decorate it himself. I'm going to add his name to some scrapbook paper with stickers and glue it propped up on the box so that the other kids don't have to hunt for his name on the box.
