I made a chicken and rice hot dish to share the family on Tuesday evening, then picked the girls up after school. They did their homework and then we proceeded to work on their Valentines boxes. They are using the ones they have used for the past several years, but wanted to update them a bit. I brought along some valentines paper that I just bought, some ribbon and bling, and we wrapped the tops in red paper and they decorated. They all turned out real cute! Charlotte is all about the Axolotyl (a Mexican Salamander) these days, so her box was decorated with them.
I finished making their valentines before I left home this morning, added an origami heart made with a $5 bill to each envelope and set them on their boxes with a note, “Do Not Open
Until February 14”. Instead of stitching cards, this time I did watercolors. Here’s how they turned out.
