Help for my procrastinating peeps

Hey, Melz-Worlders!

Have you gotten your kids their Valentines Day cards yet?

No? Are you like me, and you don't really care for the overly-priced, overly-commercialized fare at your friendly neighborhood Big Box Store?

Or are you making them by hand, lovingly crafting each and every one with your scrapbook supplies?


Well, never fear. I have rounded up a few FANTABULOUS, PRINTABLE Valentines card ideas!

(Ok, so I can't take all the credit, but I'm passing the printable goodness on to you!)

These are really cute, and if I'm reading the info correctly, they're FREE! Etsy also has several designs that are inexpensive to download. Man, do I ever wish I was this talented!

I love these too, and they even come in a version that you can color. Fancy!

I kinda wish I'd seen these like, two days ago, before I did Anna Marie's cards. They're tres chic!

Alas, I did not see those, but I saw these and they're the ones I pulled into Quark, put her name on, PDF'd, and printed out. I cut them out last night while I was watching TV, and voila! Instant Valentines!

(It does help somewhat that the teacher requested that we not put the kids' names on them, just our kid. I don't know what is up with that, but I'm not complaining!)

Yeah, I do work somewhere with access to all sorts of graphic stuff, and I could've designed them myself, but this year, I figure I'll leave all that designing to people who are, you know, good at it.

Now, if we could just figure out some resource for the men in our lives who wait till the last minute, we'd really be in business!

These are GREAT! Thanks! It's 7:21pm and I had forgotten all about them AGAIN until I saw your post. I know what I am going to do now. LOL.

And ...


You are RIGHT! Those mice ARE real!!! I had no idea, I swear!!! Wow. And I put that photo on my blog because I was SURE they were rubber.


There is no hope for me. I procrastinate and post p o r n on my blog!!!!! Yikes.

Thank you so much for bringing that to my attention. Is it gosh (how do we spell gosh? GO-sh is how you pronounce it) to delete a picture later ... after our friend points out what we have posted? LOL.

Aiyee aiyee aiyeeeeee!

Good to see you, by the way.

Happy Valentine's Day, my friend!

maybe I'll get me one of those shirts for my husband's valentine's present?

Those are so great!
The answer to why only put your kids name: It's easier to just drop a card in bags when you are not running around the room looking for a particular students bag. Plus, some of my first graders can't read the names so I, or a student helper, have to help read them and pass them out! I sent the class list and let my kids write classmates names and their name. Kinda wish I went the route AM's teacher went. It would help reduce SOME of the chaos!
