Too Cute Not To Toot!

Welcome to Valentine's Day!  I have a few fun things planned for today with the family.  I was trying to figure out why I did so much more last year and then it hit me.  Last year, I still had nap time to get things done . . .this year I have very active boys or limit my creativity time HA!  Oh well, I figure by next year, they will want me to do stuff so that they can benefit from all of that creativity, right?

Lets start with an idea from one of my favorite blogs, Craftomaniac, and an easy but adorable Valentine's idea.  This would also be fitting for a bridal shower :-)
I love game ideas to put into our Activities of the Month folder so when I saw this idea from Creations by Kara for a fun game I had to share it!
Ok, this makes me happy because I have nothing for March as of yet - I know that fellow crafters would come through and Every Creative Endeaver did not disappoint.  You WILL see this show up in March in my house!
So, I love fun shirts for my boys and this one from rhapsody of cacophony - it would be a great shirt for them to wear in the car on a long trip . . it would give them something to do!   I might have to make these for their Easter Baskets :-)
I love this party idea from Homespun with Love because it can be used for so many things - a Valentines Party, a little girls birthday party, a wedding shower or even a baby shower - it is just the inspiration that gets the party going!

This recipe looks so great to me, but we love blue cheese dressing.  Comfy in the Kitchen share a super easy, but elegant salad idea; I'm going to have to try this to see if it makes salad at home taste better!

This great dessert recipe is also from Comfy in the Kitchen  - I would love to try it soon!

If you read my post yesterday, you will know that I made one Cone Tree this year.  Well, I cam across this idea from I gotta create for some adorable trees for Valentine's Day.  I think in a few years, it will be a fun craft for the boys to make too.

This idea from Mom on Timeout is too adorable not to share.  I love the little pom-pom creatures and think they will be a fun thing to make for the boys in years to come - I can see having them write a story about each of their fuzzy friends :-)

One day soon I will actually finish the walls in my kitchen, which is also our main entrance so as I redecorate a little I've been watching for some new and creative ideas - I really liked this idea from Queen B Creative Me.

Ok, this door decor is the cutest thing ever from My Life and Kids.

I love free printables and this one from Sweet Anne is no exception.  I will be printing this and adding it to my February binder!

I really do love to do fun things with kid food so when I saw this post from Meaningful Mama I had to share it.  I love how she did something heart based for each meal. 

That's it for today!

I also wanted to say that there will not be my normal Pinterest Challenge post this week.  I think I actually did complete a couple of things but it's been such a crazy few days that I'm not sure what things are Pinterest and which are just things I wanted to do!! 

I'll be back next week with that post!
