Valentines Fun


We had kind of an early Valentine’s celebration with the kids this weekend. My sister-in-law brought over everything to make sugar cookies with the kids and we turned it into a crafty party. We needed food, so I decided to try heart-shaped pizzas. It was pretty easy since I used the ready made dough from Fresh and Easy. Papa John’s has nothing on us! I like how this one looks like a polka-dotted heart.

Of course, I had to try a little insanity. I cut slices of red bell peppers and arranged them in heart shaped on the grown-up pizza.
And here is the sugar cookie craziness!
Kira is going to town!
While they were busy making cookies, I put together this wreath, using directions found here. I just used three coordinating remnant fabrics. I planned to put it on the door, but didn’t have a hanger, so for now, it is dressing up my bare mantle.
We also tried our hand at this Martha Stewart craft. I wish I could get a better picture of how pretty they look in our front window.
And the projects didn’t stop there. After the kids were in bed, I helped my sister-in-law dip strawberries in chocolate for a bridal shower she was helping with the following day. I had to make one look like a bride and one like a groom, but forgot to take a picture. Maybe if Amber did, I will post about those another day.
I hope you are having some Valentines fun this week!

    Whoa! These are seriously fabulous. Especially love the red pepper hearts.

    By the way, you might be interested in a super give-away contest running this week (and every week) on my LDS blog at Not Entirely British

    This time, the prize is a copy of Dr. Wally Goddard’s latest book, “Soft-Spoken Parenting.” From what I’ve heard, it is excellent.

    lovelove the pizza! I plan on doing that with my son on Saturday!

  16. the red bell pepper slices have to be one of the greatest innovations in heart-shaped pizza technology to date.

  17. Did you just cut the heart shape into the ready made dough?

    • I did have ready made dough, but it had to be rolled out. I just rolled it and pressed it into the shape of a heart. No cutting involved.
