tine’s happy day valen



Theo wishes you a tine’s happy day valen.


Phoebe wishes you a Happy Valentine’s Day.

As for me, I haven’t made any valentines yet this year, and certainly nothing to top last year’s paper heart. I do feel I deserve credit, though, for overseeing and assisting Phoebe with the production of over 40 valentines. (Over twice as many as last year.) This year we started with some pre-made blank cards, and had a bit of assistance from from stamps and stickers (thanks to the resourcefulness of a neighbor/friend), which greatly sped up the process. (Especially after Phoebe spent several hours on the first 10 or so cards, and realized that she had to make at least a couple dozen more. She already complains about not having enough hours in the day.) I feel especially pleased with myself that I was able to rein in my control freak tendencies, and let Phoebe do her thing with minimal interference, such that she had (mostly) complete control over the art direction.

And if you don’t mind stale candy hearts, please revisit my Valentine’s Day treats from previous years: (Click the images to see the posts.)
I give a rat's ass for you

  1. The first “card” is my all-time favorite Valentine’s Day card ever. Perfect.

  2. Lovely. It’s the end of an era here – my daughter could not finish and asked me to buy some. I found puzzle sticker valentines, which were cool. I enjoyed making and sending ACME hearts. Hope you have fun today.

  3. Happy Valentine’s Day, or Tine’s Happy Day Valen, to you and your kids!

  4. Theo has awesome printing – good hand control and the promise of doing well with Arabic and Japanese.
    I missed my visit from Little Stuff this year, and so have no red paper scraps, blobs of glitter glue or other left over Valentine treats. Sigh.

  5. These are perfect!

  6. Excellent Valentines! :)
