The anti-valentine printables are now on Etsy here. They are instantly downloadable files!
I also made a few little things to show you what else you can do with the Valentines. I like to print mine out on iron on paper, and I made a few dishtowels, made the images smaller and made some Valentine pin-backs, and goodie bags. You could also make a felt garland you could use year after year with the same technique. I hope the ideas inspire you!
Thomas knows me so well and surprised me with this cutie, AND he ordered me Blythe clothes (isn’t that the sweetest?) He took the time to look through and pick out Blythe clothes for my gals, just so thoughtful!! I’ll do a photo shoot with them soon.
We had a nice lunch out together and then just spent the evening with B since Kurt had a movie date. Now that Valentine’s is over though I am super excited to get out the Easter decorations…one of my favorite holidays for pastel colors and bunnies!!
***the little cutie valentine gals in the photo above I got from here
Then I got to idea to recreate the necklaces using bigger beads for the dots, and cut up paper straws for the dashes. I have a big jar of the paper straws on hand, and they are perfect pastel colors. I also couldn’t find a print out morse code chart on the video so I created a PDF that I am going to print and bring in so each kid has a copy to write out their code on the bottom, and then take home in case they want to make more later.
You can print/save a copy here The cute little guy is from a vintage record that teaches you morse code. For the beads I found a one pound container of at Hobby Lobby for $13.99 and then used my 40% off coupon. For string I chose a red nylon, since nylon is strong yet still thin enough to make threading the beads a breeze.
And in the case that this wasn’t enough More Code love for you, how about..

***Oh and just a note that the Moo winners have been emailed and I updated the Moo post to include a screen shot of the winners list. I am using a plug-in called “and the winner is” it makes it very easy to randomly select winners from comments on a particular blog entry :)
just a little reminder (and I hate to have to do this but……)
