As regular readers know, Laurel adores crafts. She also adores holidays. In fact, one of the unexpectedly excellent qualities of the potted Christmas tree I pushed for this year (we plan on planting the tree come spring) is that once we took down the Christmas decorations, Laurel realized she had a blank canvas for...you guessed it...making it a Valentine's Day tree. (Actually, she first suggested creating a Martin Luther King Day tree except it took us too long to remove the Christmas decorations.)
And in addition to decorating the tree, not surprisingly, Laurel is excited to work on Valentine's cards. When I was at Altitude Design Summit, I picked up this absurdly cute love stamp kit at La Bonne Vie (a shop replete with beautiful treats of both the edible and non-edible variety). The set includes 16 heart-shaped, lovingly messaged rubber stamps and a two-color (red/pink) ink pad. You get all of the fun associated with crafting without the sugar high. Love.
Laurel already is having a great time stamping away with this set. And if want a more involved Valentine's project, check out these adorable rosebud Valentines Laurel made last year. Also, love.
