Between trying to sell our house, dealing with our car insurance company, dealing with the other driver's car insurance company, shopping for a new car, and trying to heal, I completely forgot that Valentine's Day was around the corner. When I received an email today from E's teacher about passing out valentines, I nearly had a heart attack. I always try to do handmade valentines, but how on earth?!? There's no time!
*Cue dramatic music* Skip to My Lou to the rescue! Cindy @ Skip to My Lou posted these adorable free butterfly printables a couple years ago and am I glad she did. I'm sending the hubby to the store for colored cardstock and lollipops ASAP.
Day It Rained Hearts by Felicia Bond
The artist of the If You Give... books republished her 1983 tale of a little girl and her adventure in the most unusual weather. Cornelia Augusta discovers a shower of hearts and gathers them in her raincoat to take home. Once there she turns each one into a special valentine for each of her friends. Such a sweet and gentle story, the illustrations alone are worth checking it out for your Valentine's Day reading.
