I'm obsessed with the holidays...

If you know me, you know how much I love decorating for all of the holidays. Including our birthdays and the Olympics, because those are definitely holidays too! Anyway, since having Clay I've tried to make sure that I send out pictures of him to both of our families frequently. Enter the holiday card. I usually do a card on Shutterfly (with all the free promo codes I get, I usually just pay shipping). However, this Valentine's Day I had a little something different in mind.

 

 

It was so easy peasy and actually ended up being cheaper than paying for shipping for cards from Shutterfly! For the front I just attached the card with adhesive dots then crocheted a heart and attached that with a dot too.

 

 

For the back I just slapped some washi tape on there and a stamp then wrote a quick message. I mean, really, after seeing how cute the front is, who really cares about the back??

 

 

And the envelopes. Love the little details :)

 

The very day I put these in the mail I got an email from daycare with Clay's class list. I had completely spaced on having to send Valentines to daycare. I racked my brain for ideas and took to Pinterest but had a hard time finding a printable that would work for a young toddler class.

Then I remembered that I had saw this printable on Everyday Cheer. The bonus? It was a free printable. I had everything I needed except for the Goldfish :)

 

 

If our Valentines make the recipients half as happy as they made me, I'll call it a win :) Next up? St. Patty's Day cards!

 

(I'll share the rest of Clay's Valentine's pictures on Friday!)
