A Day For Love....and Glitter

Presenting...the 5th annual Valentine Card extravaganza!

When the Princess was 2, I bought $50 in supplies at our local Michaels for her playgroup to make homemade valentines. The other children - largely assisted by their mothers - each made one or two before wandering off to play. My daughter was having so much fun that she proceeded to spend the entire day making 29 beautiful valentines. That's right, a 2-year-old child spent 7 HOURS making art. We were charmed, the recipients loved their valentines and now we have a very special tradition.

What an amazing attention span for such a young child. Are you keeping one valentine for each year? I hope she keeps her passion for creating. It looks as if she is following in her mother's footsteps.
