Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day!
I hope you all had a fab-u-lus day, whether you did any mushy V-day stuff or not. Usually, we don’t do too much of anything for Valentine’s Day, especially when it lands on a week day (which is like every year), but today Chris and I did get to escape for an hour to get coffee and share a scone before Chris had to go proctor an exam and I had to relieve the babysitter.
Charlotte has a wretched cold, so our time alone tonight was not so fun (Hello, Miserable Child), but we did manage to finish up Charlotte’s little gift to Daddy Dearest.
Behold, Charlotte’s hand print bouquet:
This was so easy to make, even though Charlotte did not want to cooperate with the paint or the hand-tracing. If you have popsicle sticks, some craft paint, construction paper, and glue, then you are good to go. We also happened to have that cute pink vase sitting in a closet unused and the stick ball (or whatever those things are called) hanging out in one of my useless decorative bowls. It’s hard to see in the picture, but we have two with Charlotte’s hand stamped in pink paint, a couple with some gold sparkle, and a simple crayon scribble. Charlotte also wrote a note to her daddy on one of the backs.
Just a sweet and simple way to preserve Charlotte’s little hand prints.
I just want to high five all those cute little hands right there.
