I still had the stings of hearts I sewed last year, I hung them from the ceiling.
The cards I made for my girls. I used the big 4x6 size cards from a Project Life kit and folded it in 1/2. The one on the left I put some washi tape on a transparency then cut out a heart shape and sewed it on. The card on the left I cut out a heart from transparency and filled it with little punches and sequins, ect before sewing it in place.
These Pumpkin pancakes were the Valentine's Day breakfast of champions! :) Tutorial here .
Lunch was some yummy Olive Garden soup I pulled out of the freezer. It was kind of orangy, so I added a can of tomato paste to make it more red. It worked nicely and the kids still thought it was awesome soup! They had no idea I snuck in more veggies, ha ha!
This yummy looking pizza with heart shaped pepperonis was dinner. They made their own how they wanted.

These pancakes just kind of happened. I was making 3 batches of pumpkin pancakes because my kiddos have been begging me and 1/2 way through I thought I'd experiment for Valentines Day. So, I stuck them in the freezer and they're all ready to go. I just stick them in the fridge the night before, then put them in the rice cooker on warm an hour before breakfast and it's less to do before rushing them off to school. :) It's pretty simple, but I took pics of the steps as I went. Use whatever pancake recipe you like and go for it!
|Step 1. Separate some of the batter and add food coloring of choice to the batter bowl with less batter.|
|Step 2. Use a measuring cup or something with a pour spout and make a V shape, until it's full and looks like a heart.|
|Step 3. Cook on a griddle at about 325 degrees, don't flip the heart. Wait till it is bubbly and not runny on top, then pour the regular batter directly over the heart and form a circle.|
|Step 4. When the edges are bubbly flip and surprise the cute heart is in the middle!|
|Now your pretty pancakes are ready to eat! Enjoy!|

I made this Welcome Home album for a new neighbor that moved in down the street. I made it out of 8 1/2 x 11 Kraft card stock that had been used for name tags. I like to reuse things whenever possible! Then I simply pasted pretty papers to all the pages, bound it and added a front cover title. Very simple! The most time consuming part was cutting all they paper, other then that went pretty quick.
