The way to my heart is through the specialty cheese counter.

Happy Valentine’s Day to those who tolerate it!

Personally, I dislike all holidays where the emphasis is on buying. So much pressure. I much prefer holidays where the emphasis is on eating – like Thanksgiving and Halloween!

The one thing I do enjoy about Valentine’s Day is helping Tyler make Valentines for his classmates. Last year (B.P. – Before Pinterest), I found a super-cute idea that was a smash hit at the elementary school. So we recycled it for this year.

Step 1: Cut a hole in the box. Take a picture of a cute little boy, preferably your own.  

Step 2: Using Flickr and Picnik (but only until April, SOB), crop the picture to a 4×6 size. This is VERY IMPORTANT, otherwise it won’t print right. Then use their seasonal stickers and borders to make it all fancy. Add some appropriate words. Have copies printed.

Step 3: Gather manly-looking supplies – a hammer, a hole punch, a self-healing mat, and some miniature lollipops. The pencil photobombed this shot. No actual pencil is required.

Step 4: Using the punch, make holes at the top and bottom of your child’s hand (on the PHOTOGRAPH, just to be clear). Thread the lollipop stick through the holes.

Step 5: Distribute. Pat self on back. Eat extra lollipop.
