have a lover-ly day

Greetings all,
Never one to anticipate Valentine's Day with roses, chocolates or gifts - i'm just thrilled if my husband is around (he's not, i'm not thrilled) but i can make it a fun day of love hearts for the children.  My darling husband is romantic in non roses-chocolates-gifts style, our first Valentine's Day he made a card (on folded ruled paper) drew a rose & wrote a tiny poem, so beautiful & i still have it!!     
Kikki-K of course has super sweet stationery, i bought the range in last month.
 We made a big batch of Vanilla Snap Biscuits for friends . . .
 the heart shaped trio cutters are from Gidgi on line (hi Rachael), i dusted the edges with flour for cutting, worked a treat.  I could have iced the finished biscuits or dusted with confectioner's sugar, but they'd end up a sticky mess by recess, so kept it simple. 
 The children decorated CD window envelopes for their teachers & friends, my high schooler made hers funny with "OMG, you give me butterflies" & my son wrote "Mrs Awesome Todd" complete with love hearts for his favourite teacher.  I know she'll adore it, she constantly threatens to kidnap my boy, it's his dimples, just like his papa.  
 I have found some new desserts to try out, so i wrote a comprehensive shopping list & promptly left it on the kitchen counter, so wandered Coles hoping i could remember everything.  Amazingly i remembered all the chocolate i needed, hmmm??
 I see lots of this happening to burn off said chocolate, with my constant companion Khan.  How glorious is dog walking in beautiful weather??    
 Happy Valentine's Day lover-ly folks & a friendly welcome to my new followers, thanks so much for joining my bloggie caper, love Posie

enjoy your valentines day with your kidliwinks! How awesome are the gifts for the teachers! Cute! I know what the teacher means about the dimples! BTW am sending a care package for surgery time - is PO Box the best address?

What a cute idea. I plan on making some heart-shaped biscuits today too. I'm sort of glad I don't live near a KikkiK store or I'd never have any money. Those stamps are so cute!

Happy Valentines Day Jennie!

I don't think my hubby has remembered. I'm not fussed though. I am just giving him a card when he gets home this afternoon. He was gone before I woke up this morning.

Happy day lovely You!

Your thoughtfulness knows no bounds and I'm storing away that clever idea of the bikkies in the CD envelopes = genius!

Big hug from afar,

Oh, look like you making to bake up a storm today. I just got our valentines day cake out of the oven and boy is it decadent - I used the sheet cake Retromummy posted on her blog last week. Now to decorate it appropriately.

I love using CD covers for biscuits. My fave are smartie cookies in coloured CD covers. I am aiming at doing snowflake cookies in red covers for Xmas (think Scandinavian look), just have to find a snowflake cookie cutter, but I have time. Hope you had a glorious Valentines with your 4 cherubs.
