Two weeks ago, my dear friend Kathryn called me and asked me if I had made the girls’ Valentines for school yet. I laughed- that is so my friend. She is extremely talented and organized. Her cakes are delicious, her presents are perfect, and her generosity is well known! And No I had not made them yet- I hadn’t even thought about making any. I always save good ideas and hope to do them, but I never get them done and they never turn out as I hope they will. Along came Kathryn to the rescue.
She has a Cricut. This amazing machine cuts out all kinds of shapes and can make any shape that you have into a gift tag by adding a circle at the top. So fun. Kathryn spent her entire Thursday morning with me and helped me create flowers for the children’s valentines. The petals are hearts (two sizes- smaller for the inside and bigger for the outside). The tag is a leaf shape and the girls wrote,”Our friendship is BLOOMING!” The kids were able to assemble them all by themselves! I would never have done these without Kathryn. I think we made more than 65 of them.
Thank you Kathryn for caring about my kids’ valentines and for teaching me so much!
