Last Minute Printable Valentines
{no sugar added!}


The kiddos and I just finished up their Valentines, and boy did they turn out fun.

02122013E02122013CI was really going for something “punny” that they could understand–that didn’t involve a food/candy item.

As it was, I told them what I thought we should do, and two days later Beckham came up to me laughing and repeating the punchline.

02122013FGive him a break, he’s five. (And really, really, cute.)

02122013DLily, well, she asked for tape for Christmas. Enough said.

02122013AShe was thrilled when she counted everything out and realized that she could keep two of these.

02122013BA couple packs of paper straws or little tape dispensers (washi tape would be cute, too…) and some cardstock in your printer, and you’re all set. Just click on the link below to download and print.

PS I actually cut my hearts out with my Silhouette Cameo. If you want me to post that file, I’d be happy to. Just let me know. Also, the super cute washi tape on the valentines came from a free downloadable set I found here. Head on over there to download and use them yourself. They’re super cute.

Christmas Day


One of favorite days of the year. A day that I remember in hazy twinkle lights, and sparkling paper and overwhelming good.

Thank you for being born baby Jesus, and thank you even more for your life and your kindness and your patience with me.

I am so grateful for the opportunity to be mommy to my sweet sweethearts, and a man that is better to me than I could have dreamed. So much love. I am grateful for my talents and the opportunity to do the things I love, and for the many many people who have encouraged and helped me along the way. I am so so thankful for the darling people who I have met through this blog, and their love and goodness. <---(that's you) I hope your holidays were filled with indescribable magic, love, and hazy twinkle lights. All my love, xoxo April PS More to come on the new patterns, and now that the recipients know about their gifts, I can tell you more about some of the handmade fun I made this year. Let's just say it was the year of the quilts. We'll talk soon.

Festival of Stars Hanukkah Quilt

Something beautiful that I want to share–because everyone can use an extra dose of lovely in their day.
Share yours in the comments, if you’d like.

PS Happy first night of Hanukkah to my sweet Jewish friends. We’ll be lighting our first candle tonight with you, and reminding ourselves that miracles do indeed, still happen. Have a beautiful, light-filled holiday. xoxo
