for example, i found these adorable buggy valentines on pinterest and had every intention of making them. just like they are here. honest. but then i started thinking about these rolls of tulle i had at home and how cool would it be to make little butterfly nets but how exactly would i make those butterfly nets and then we spied the sea creatures and g really wanted them and kazam! inspiration hit. i think they turned out super cute. and working on valentines till 10:00 pm last night and oversleeping by an hour this morning was totally worth it. g went on and on about how popular his valentines were. i'm so proud.

We had the best v-day box - it was the paper mache mail box at Hobby Lobby turned on the end and made into a shark with an opening mouth for the cards. I can't wait to blog it tomorrow!
