When I sat down last month in a morbid post-Christmas slump to sketch this project, I promised myself I'd meet my goal of making it "the crazier the better!" Remember that corny old comment, "You can say THAT again!"? Yeah, well right now you CAN say that again! This tote bag is not only crazier than a
Maybe we'll just designate these whimsical totes a gathering place for all things VD....storage for decorations, games, prizes and cards bought ahead for next year - preferably at 90% off! When the bag reemerges every year, (think: elf on the shelf - minus the tattling to Santa!) the kiddoes can line up to see how much their darling little hands have grown over the past year - and stick their cute little noses deep inside to see if grandma sent along enough candy to keep everybody jumpin' off the walls! (Hmmmm....that well may be the subconscious motivation for the dump-and-drive nature of this gift!)
This year the bags will contain a set of the "Family Reunion" bingo cards I made last week, an equal number of prizes for everybody (dinosaur and princess sticker sheets, glow swords and heart topped wands (oh, how did I ever live before Dollar Tree?), sticky string, light up necklaces, etc.) and some heart shaped cookies for munching along during the game.
Smack!.....I love my little Valentines (here's 2/5 of them!)....and ya know...I think those little bugs just might love me right back!
