Adorably simple paint chip bookmarks, stamped with love and with a simple signature on the back.
The best part is I have plenty of V-Day stamps, I'd just have to make a quick trip to Lowe's
And look at what this simple color block artwork turned into via mer mag:
Absolutely brilliant, and tres chic.
I worked from home today which is always a treat and was kept quite busy. We did take a little break for some post school frozen yogurt though :) I'm looking forward to a family weekend filled with my nephew's 7th birthday party and another birthday party for one of Taylor's classmates on Sunday. And then the big day on Monday! Anyone have any special plans for the day or night? It's a regular work day for Art and I, but I plan to make a lasagna for dinner and just be together as a family.
I sadly found Leslie's Valentine Day Advent calendar too late to make one of my own this year, but its not too late to head on over to her blog and read her thoughts on Valentine's Day together as a family. I love, love, love what she has to say. Please stop on over and say hi if you get a chance.
All this to say in a very roundabout way, where do you shop for nice quality children's clothes and shoes? I really want to enact the quality vs. quantity policy for all their clothes and shoes now that they are a little older and aren't getting so messy. I find that when I do buy quality, it obviously lasts longer, but they seem to enjoy wearing it more and are even more comfortable. Besides, the Target girls section now that Taylor is in a 6x leaves much to be desired. Have you seen some of the clothes in that department? Biting my tongue.
Oh, there was one last thing that I had to share before I go! Have you heard of Knitty Bitties? Well she is a fellow Andrea and we have become friends through this wacky world of social media. The girl has mad sewing skills and her work is flawless. I can personally attest to it. Come back on Monday, the big big day for a special something from Andrea. I promise you won't want to miss it!
And I will leave you with this fun snippet. I was reminded of this video I saw last weekend when I used the term roundabout. Watch it. I promise you will laugh, even if you're not a Star Wars geek.
Happy Weekend Friends!
