Valentine’s Day Ideas


We keep our Valentine’s celebrating pretty low key here at casa It All Started With Paint.  It typically involves some flowers for the girls (me and Molly) from the boys (Mike and Sam).  The kids are beyond the age of the passing out of Valentine’s in class.


And can I give that a big old good riddance?


I know, I know, that’s not in the spirit of the holiday of love.  But those class Valentine’s projects always turned into a last minute dash with the kids getting bored about a third of the way in, and me finishing up all the sealing and sticking and licking …


… licking?


Ah well.  Even though we don’t go all out for the celebration of the heart, clearly many of you do.  I mean, just look at this round-up of Valentine’s projects that linked up to last week’s Super Saturday Link Party …
