After knitting a whole pile of my Sweetheart Knit Valentines – what to do with them!? I saw the chocolate kisses at the drugstore, which my kids adore and don’t get very often. How they would love to have their very own stash of kisses. How to package them? hmmm – who doesn’t like a hidden message, a secret love note? AND, for some reason (maybe because I had three kids in three years) they like to label and differentiate their stuff! Anything with their initials makes them very happy. Long after the kisses are gone, they can reuse the jars for their own treasures (rocks, finger knitting, trading cards, crayons, etc).
Please don’t laugh that my kids initials are A, B, C (and, then, there’s “D” for Daddy). I didn’t do it intentionally, but it is how it came out. I didn’t notice the “ie” in all their names, either – Charlie, Baillie, Allie, until their birth certificates were done and I was out of options. ah, well. Look carefully below at the adorable postcard from Marisa at Creative Thursday. I love, love, love her paintings and her blog – always something cheerful to make you happy.
