First up: a simple tissue paper heart decoration. The girls each made a heart and then we taped them together back-to-back to make a 3D hanging. It turned out cute!
Wait a second. What's that heart hanging from? Is that a...a....a chandelier? A clean and sparkly chandelier? Could it be???
Oh my, yes. And how bee-yooooo-tiful that clean chandelier is, too! Not a speck of dust to be seen. ;) (A nesting pregnant lady is not be contended with. I wanted to clean that chandelier so badly I couldn't see straight. So I did. I refuse to tell you how I ended up retrieving the glass, though. My husband reads here, and I might get in a wee bit of trouble if I admit to climbing on the table in all of my very-pregnant-glory.)
(Oops. Too late.)
Be still my nesting pregnant heart. I could stare at that dust-free light fixture all day.
(I should probably tell you that I went on to clean every other light fixture on the main floor of the house, but then you might think I'm crazy, so I'll keep that part to myself.)
What were we talking about? Oh right- pins! Okay, so I also pinned a valentine candy math activity. This was one of those things that I thought was a splendid idea. My kids? Very under-impressed. I think they can tell when I'm trying to entertain them into learning. They'd probably prefer to eat candy while doing a regular math page rather than doing a math-page-dressed-up-as-fun-just-because-it-entails-candy. They can smell edu-tainment a mile away, and they are never impressed by it.
Anyway, they played along, mostly because I was cajoling them by saying things like, "But this is for Pinning it Down! You've got to do it so I have something to blog about!" You see that I have my priorities in order.
We also tried our hand at these Raspberry Swirl Gluten-Free Valentine Cupcakes. The batter was so runny, Prim and I had our doubts that they would turn out- but they did! Tulip decorated them, and they were scrumptious.
And finally, remember that love message board I made Andy for my first Pinning It Down project? I decided they would make lovely Valentine's Day gifts for the kids, too. I can put them on their dressers and leave them a little note every so often.
I thrifted each of these frames and got the scrapbook paper on sale, so it ended up being a cheap cheap cheap gift.
Make sure you check out what everyone else is pinning down this week!
