Such great ideas – I appreciate the non-candy ones especially.
And one of these days I must learn to knit/crochet.

I am the LEAST CRAFTY PERSON EVER – and I made valentines! They are from my little 4 month old and they have his photo on a piece of cardstock surrounded by stickers, stamps, and crooked childlike print. We mailed a bunch yesterday to grandmas, cousins, and other baby pals. Everyone else gets them hand-delivered.

I still don’t know why I was even inspired – I think it was YOU Design Mom!
You make me believe I can do it! :)

Our girls have Monday off from school so Valentine’s day came early around here. We made pop-up cards with googly eyes (always a classic), but my 1st grader was devastated that she was the only one in her class to pass out homemade cards. She thought that everyone was going to put in as much time and effort as we did. It’s sad that Valentine’s day is so (overly) commercialized now. Thanks for promoting personalized cards/crafts.

Love those hearts! However, they are knitted, not crocheted.
Here’s a link for your readers who crochet, but don’t knit.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love the knitted heart ones – I have just enough yarn scraps to make a few of these!

Adorable cards. In France, children don’t exchange cards with classmates like we do in the States. My son took flowers and cards to his teachers today, however. (He is particularly enamored with one). We’ve also made a tradition of sending homemade cards to all of my single girlfriends. Now they ard all married, but we do it anyway. There’s nothing cuter then a 4 year-old with baring flowers and Valentine cards.

What a great idea. I don’t even have to go shopping – I have all the colors I need here at home:)

We made the lollipop valentines this year! It’s such a cute idea! My daughter loves them and can’t wait to give them out in class.

Love these ideas! Especially the knitted hearts. Seems I’ve had my headdown 100% lately and am now just looking up and catching up. I’ve missed reading your posts. I made candy heart box labels this year–so fun! ( ) I am just warming up to the Valentine thing now that I have a preschooler sharing Valentines. I can’t wait for next year. -A

These Valentine’s are so cute, I can’t even stand it. I’m not super crafty, but I feel like I could pull some of these off. Thanks for sharing!
