Happy Valentine's Day!!!


How many kisses have you gotten today?  How many kisses do you HOPE to get?
Well, I am hoping for LOTS!  Especially since I am one super duper awesome~tacular Mom (if I do say so myself!)  LOL
My original intent was to post a new bow tutorial, but my 7 year old got ahold of my camera and deleted those pics!  SoOOOOooooOOOoo....that will come soon!  Until thien< I will leave you with a link to my can scroll through and find some bows in there.  :)

Also, I had to come up with something super fast, so I decided what better to do than a super fast valentine idea! ....But first, you get to endure my long winded mini story. HA!

I have had 5 kids in basketball, track, or weight lifting this last 2 months,  been doing taxes, and I sub occasionally at my kids' schools... so I COMPLETELY forgot that today was Valentine's day!   Last night, I was in a LOOOONG line at Walmart trying to buy some last minute treats, and wondering WHAT IN THE WORLD was I thinking going to Walmart the day before Valentine's day! AGH!  As I got to the checkout (with the very minimal purchase, mind you, since theV-day stuff had been picked over quite thoroughly)  I wondered again WHAT WAS I THINKING!  LOL.  When the cashier told me my total,  I literally said out loud (mostly to myself, but everyone heard)  "Twenty Two dollars on Candy?   What crazy person does that???" ...As I handed her cash.  Everyone that was in line behind me laughed at my comment, as they are ALL standing with arms full of candy!  I thought Halloween was bad!

Anyway, so , I got home with my $22 dollars worth of chocolates and other candies, and realized that I hadn't thought about something to put all this crap in!  SOoooOOooo, I go searching through my gift wrapping stash, and I came across 5 blue paper bags that were left over from some party years prior.  Not very Valentine~y.  Oh well, it is what it, I got them out, stuffed them with the candy, and then remembered!  Oh!  I can add hearts!  And Ribbon!  YES!  I am a crafter after all!  LOL.


I pulled out my glue gun, and my FAVORITE ribbon that Bonnie has, white silky crush, and within minutes, I had what appeared to be a  decent Valentine arrangement!  LOL. WHew!  (not that the kids would care)  but I did and that's all that counts!  My 5 minute valentine bags:

I think they turned out pretty decent for no planning at all! 
The big poofy white bow just made it all come together magically!  
This just goes to show how VALUABLE ribbon can be in an emergency situation!  LOL

I hope you enjoyed my little craziness and remember to ALWAYS keep some ribbon on hand! 
Bonnie has LOTS to choose from!

How cute are these? Love them!
And yes, it's handy to be a crafter, because we can solve a lots of last minutes issues with our papers and tools - like when the boys have forgotten to tell me they are going to birthday parties this week...
