Are you getting ready for Valentine's Day?

Are you getting ready for Valentine's day? I am, as I state with more than just a little bit of pride. I will keep you posted on whether or not my good intentions actually come to fruition. But, for now... I have a plan. You have to start with one of those, dontcha?
Well, I started seeing some really great ideas pop up on Pinterest, and was thinking how nice it would be to make homemade Valentines this year. I did that when Georgia was little, and Olivia. When the third child came along and started to hit preschool, Valentines to classmates, age, I just didn't manage the homemade Valentines anymore. So, I store-bought. There I said it aloud. I admitted it. ;)
So, this year, I may not have made any specific new years resolutions yet. I haven't even decided if I will. But, as different opportunities to rediscover some creativity present themselves, I am going to try to seize them... starting with Valentine's day.
I will share the specific idea I have for the girls' Valentines as the date gets a little closer.
But, in the meantime, here are some of the other ideas that I thought were super groovy. Maybe you will decide to try one.

You could go the Martha route with these felt fortune cookies.

This blog had two really cute homemade valentines, as well as other great holiday projects!

This one is just too totally cute!

I have seen this idea several times, but still love it!

Seriously, how cute is this super-hero Valentine?
