Owl Always Love You Valentines

Owl Always Love You Valentines #valentinesday #diyvalentines

My daughter is blessed to go to an in home day care everyday, and has made some pretty cute friends!  I love making Valentines for her little friend at daycare, and I love it even more that she is old enough now to help!  I had found an owl file in a Silhouette Facebook group that I am in, and knew it would be perfect for Natalie’s Valentines.  This is the most layering I’ve done, and I loved it so much I made her a shirt to match!  And a bonus….I got to use my Silhouette Pen Holder again!  Score!

I know you are here to check out these AWESOME Silhouette Projects with fabric this month!  But, in case you missed it, the Silhouette Designer edition is on SALE for 40% off in the Silhouette Store. I knew that I would be using my Silhouette Cameo to create some super cute Valentines for my little princess’s day care friends.  After all, with only 4 kids there that are her age, I can totally make the effort to create some adorable and detailed Valentines for them….and of course with Natalie’s help!  But what I hadn’t planned on doing was my most HTV layers to date-this adorable “Owl Always Love You” shirt to match her fun valentines!  How cute will this be when she shows up at daycare on Friday with her fun Valentines AND an adorable shirt to match!

Seven Days of Love for Your Kids

14 Day of Love #valentinesday #kidsactivities

Valentine’s Day tends to be overshadowed in our house.  The boys’ birthday is on February 15th, so we are usually knee deep in birthday preparations or parties on Valentine’s Day.  But, I still want to show some extra sweet love to the boys, and Natalie, during the month of February.  We started the 14 Days of Love on February 1, and we’ve been going strong every since ! Although, we are still a week from Valentine’s Day.  But, I wanted to share this with you, in hopes that you can start this fun tradition in your house for the next 7 days.  On Valentine’s Day, we’ll culminate with a gift card to their favorite place as an extra special treat.

Hello! It’s Kelly from Here Comes the Sun.  Valentine’s Day is such a fun holiday for kids. They get lots of love and candy and cards… and more candy. In addition to all the treat that the holidays bring, I always like to come up with holiday themed activities for the kids too.  My daughter is in first grade and she enjoys BINGO so I made this free printable Valentine Bingo game to play with her. With the weather like it is right now in most parts of the US, these types of games are a life saver when you are stuck at home on snow days.

Chicken Burritos 2

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I hope you’re ready for a little spice today to break through the cold weather.  As much as we love to hit up our local taco shop, some days it’s just easier to set up a taco bar at home.  Everyone can add the toppings they like, and there’s no fussing – especially with my seasoned chicken for tacos.  You could totally make this recipe for burritos, tostadas, and chimichangas too.  Have fun with it!

Making the Most of Character Meet and Greets at Walt Disney World

ry=480

Seeing their FAVORITE characters up close and in “real life” is the highlight of most trips to Walt Disney World for so many children and their parents.  I remember so many wonderful character interactions on all of our trips-from my daughter giving Sorcerer Mickey a kiss on the nose, to Minnie Mouse playing peek a boo with her, to the boys STILL enjoying a good interaction with Donald Duck-it has always been a part of our Disney trips to make sure our children saw their favorite characters up close and personal.

Who  here when they think of etched monograms, thinks super traditional? *Picture me with my hand raised.*  I’m here to tell you that a monogram does not have to be traditional–in fact, you can be very “mod” with a monogram…and with etched glass.
