Call me old school, but I heart Post-It Notes. I use them to jot down notes, set reminders, bookmark pages, and label just about anything. When I came across this picture on Pinterest, I couldn't wait for the opportunity to make an eye-catching backdrop from the world's favorite sticky notes.

I made these cake pops for my Modern Valentine's Party.
This my attempt to make the simple cake balls look cute with the addition of some pink hearts. Anything looks better with pink hearts on, right?! :)

Valentine's Day Party Ideas: Modern Pink, Teal and Yellow Art Inspired Valentine's Day Desserts Table
Don't get me wrong, I'm not the "Valentine Grinch", but I can't help but be a little tired of all the red and pink decorations out there...So this year, I decided to go out on a limb and try a different color palette for my Valentine's Party - Fuchsia, Teal and Yellow. What do you think? :)
This party also has lots of home-made elements as I baked, styled and crafted...

So beyond excited to see our Valentine's feature on the February 2013 Issues of Red River Family Magazine AND Rio Grande Magazine!

Every morning I bring my husband tea in bed. Can't really remember when it started, but that's how we roll.
He loves tea. And love him. So that's probably why...
Anyways, this Valentine's I decided to serve a little extra sweetness along with the tea.

It's always nice to start the week on a sweet note, don't you think? And there's nothing sweeter than a cute packaging idea for your Valentine's party favors!

There's nothing more loving in my view than a box of homemade, edible delights. I mean, taking the time to say "I Love You" or "You Matter" with a box of sugary things, makes for a pretty special gift, don't think?! :)
Our contributor Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design thinks so too. Check out her recipe for the most pretty and scrumptious Valentine's Heart Cookies below.

I love thinking up new ideas on how to re-purpose printables. Take a sheet of printable scrapbook paper + some heart favor tags, for instance - the possibilities are truly endless!
I hate waste also, and have used the off cuts of the paper to embellish some pretty cute Valentine's Cutlery Pockets! Step-by-step below...

I'm a sucker for easy recipes (pun intended) and there's nothing easier than these Valentine's Heart Lollipops - Wait for it...Made with left over candy canes from Christmas! How cool is that?! :)
I saw the idea a while back on Pinterest, and just had to try it - We always get tons of candy cane left over from Christmas and this is also the perfect way to use them up!
My kids got involved in the making of course, and fun was had all round - Bonus, for when you're stuck indoors due to cold weather! ;)

Following on from my posts last week on styling a Hot Cocoa Bar here and here, I thought it would really be handy to share a recipe on how to make lHomemade Marshmallows! ;)
I know you may be thinking - "Why the heck would I want to make my own marshmallows" - Well, I thought that too...BEFORE I made them!! The taste for starters, is beyond dreamy (and quite addictive). Plus, it's a real fun thing to make (with or without kids). AND if that wasn't enough to convince you, making your own marshmallows means you can color them and cut them in any shape you like to match your party theme and colors perfectly! ;)

Today more than any other, is the day to spread the ♥ and sweetness! And I have for you some real party photos that may do just that - They come from our sweet customer Gillian, who in turn sent me some ♥ yesterday when she wrote me the sweetest email:
"Hello again Bird! Your printables are so gorgeous. ...feel proud that you put a smile on so many peoples faces. Just looking at all your gorgeous designs and pics gives me a lift!"

I had a small surprise tea party for my girls to celebrate Valentine's Day. My oldest daughter's birthday is on Valentine's day so most of the time we overlook Valentine's Day. This year was different, we had a Valentine's party for their girlfriends but I wanted to do something just for us!
Hope you enjoy, and can find some last minute inspiration for your own Valentine's Day Celebrations!
