Pocket Full of Yummies!!

Last week, I received from Peppermint Plum, these very red and see thru envelopes that just screamed "Make me into a Valentine, Please" tonight I did..

I sometimes find it hard to work with see thru envelopes but these ones just knew what they wanted to be, so it was easy. I placed a round doilies inside the envelopes and then added a couple of matching wrapped up Ghirardelli squares. {Which are always a fun and tasty little treat!}

I added a heart doilies on the outside with a card stock valentine from daisyd's and matching ribbon. The look gets completed with a fun button and a happy Martha Stewart felt heart {love}.

I truly love Valentines. Not the commercialization of it {I think ALL valentines should be somewhat homemade!} I just love that we are celebrating love. I like sending special valentines with the Kids to share at school and love to see what kinds of valentines they have in their bag when they come home. I like mailing off a few freshly made valentines to Friends and Family too. Its like sending a little hug to people in your life who you just care about! What do you like about Valentines? Do you have any special traditions? I would love to hear about them.

I'll be working on the Kids classroom treats next. I think I've decided on "You Make me Hoppy"! Can you tell the theme? =:o)
I'm hopping off...have a great night!
