Getting Ready for Valentine's Day!

So this weekend seemed like a good time to start my Valentine's projects... you know, BEFORE the holiday is here and gone.  I don't know what's wrong with me, but I am more inspired to be crafty for holidays once they have passed.  Thankfully Valentine's isn't like the big holiday season and I guess I really am not too overwhelmed to get stuff done on time... 
In one of my less than genius moments, I asked m y son if he thought it would be a good idea to give mail boxes to his classmates.  Naturally, he thought it was a great idea, and so I finally sat down and made them yesterday.  It started off 6,  then I added one, cause I wanted one made form some clearance paper I found and loved. But as soon as I started making it, I realized it would be commandeered for his teacher. It was.

Okay, so in all 8 happened.  But #3 I had figured out the secret to the curvy part and not ripping my hair out with frustration.  So here they are (sorry about the poor photo quality, that part was not coming together very well...sigh):
The boy's boxes.  My daughter convinced him they should all be different colors. Argh.

My fave, I decided to keep for me :)

This one is for teacher, although I really like it too and it's a tough choice! :)

I have one more project to do for V Day.  I might even get it done in time! ;)
Have a fabulous Monday friends!


  1. You have been a very busy lady. They are all adorable. I'm sure his classmates will love them.
