Pinterest Made Me Do It: Valentine's Day

If you are like me, you're addicted to Pinterest. It is seriously the coolest thing ever. There are so many crafty and creative people out there! I am just amazed by all the fun projects I find. I am always thinking: 'Why didn't I think of that??'. 

Yesterday morning, the kids woke up to a HEART, not chest pains....I attacked their bedroom doors with paper heart cut outs telling them how much I love them and all the things they are great at! For example: Bobby is great at being a big brother, and Lily is great at walking!  Sorry I don't have a picture to show you, but it was so fun surprising them! I think this will be a new tradition!

After finding so many great ideas for Valentine's Day, I thought it would be fun to start a series called 'Pinterest Made Me Do It'. Where I show you all my latest projects inspired by Pinterest. I thought later I would turn the series into a Link Party, but for now, it's just a fun post to show you stuff I have done. This one is the Valentine's Day edition. After searching and searching...

I vow I will NEVER buy store-bought Valentines again! 

I found so many fun printables and ideas to last me at least through grade school! 

I am just now learning my way around Photoshop, and haven't even tried to learn Illustrator. With my twinsie accross the pond now, I've lost my graphics go-to gal. So when I found some FREE printables, I was thrilled! 

For Bobby, I found some adorable pencils in the $1 Spot at Target ( always gotta stop weakness). Ten pencils for $1! Score. I didn't even know what I would do with them, I just thought they were cute so I threw them in the cart. Good thing I did, because I stumbled upon this free printable  (check out this blog for more cute printables) and wha-la! Instant Valentines for Bobby's class. Total spent: $2.00. Actually, less than that since I didn't use all 20 pencils.

For Lily, I wasn't sure what to do. She is only 16 mos. But I saw this printable and knew I had a winner! The best part? I didn't have to buy anything! We had this playdoh left over from the party bags from the kids' birthday party. Perfect! I thought these were adorable!

Another good thing?? These are SUGAR FREE Valentines! I like to limit the kiddos' sugar, I am a dental hygienist, ya know! 

What has Pinterest inspired you to do, lately?


  1. I love these! They're so cute! I would be ecstatic to get either when I was a kid!

    1. Thanks! I can't take all the credit, though! :)

  2. That is adorable- I would have never thought to make Valentine Play Doh... :) Pinterest is a super place to find inspiration and to share! Fun post-

  3. I have THE BEST valentine for next year. Got the idea from online too. Can't wait to send them out! Ha! A whole year away! I like the decorating the door idea! maybe I'll do that next year too for Noah and Asher! :)
