1. DIY Valentines — Sweet Without the Sugar! with Guest Blogger Rebecca G. from Not-So-SAHM

    I have to admit that I fall firmly into the camp of loving Valentine’s Day. And I love that my kids are on that bandwagon too. They love to think of kind (and often elaborate) gestures to show people dear to them how they feel. And that includes each other. Seriously.

    Now, don’t get me wrong. They spend plenty of time bickering over the most trivial things possible, but when pressed, they’d both answer that they are each other’s best friend. But because so much of the holiday is fueled by candy, I like to help them put together a sweet valentine for each other that sends the love without the sugar.

  5. Paper Source Workshop: Adults & Kids Valentines Classes

    For our Valentine workshop this year, we had a hard time deciding between a kids class or an adult class…so we created both! For our hopelessly romantic Girls Night Out gals, we have a workshop in which we’ll share our love of Victorian folded Valentine creations embellished with Paper Source accents. And since so many of you LOVED our Gingerpaper House Workshop for kids, we created a Sweet Handmade Valentine Workshop (with Mom or Dad) perfect for ages 7 and older.

    Classes vary by store location – we’re so sorry if the class you want is not available at your local store! But don’t forget to check workshop schedules for surrounding stores in your area, or plan your own Valentine private party with just 4-6 people (call your local store for more information)!
