Valentine's Day in Rm 4! (2nd Grade)

I have a blast coming up with craft projects for Kayley's class to do on holidays (her teacher loves me helping too!) For the Valentine's party the kids decorated shoe boxes with hearts and Build-A-Bears. They had a great time creating their boxes.

Going through their goodies!

The Things You Do For Love! - Kayley Gets Her Ears Pierced

Chuck and I have been asking Kayley if she wants to get her ears pierced for the past few years. She always responded with a "NO!!" This past week her friend, Cooper from school gave her a belated Christmas gift. The gift was a big assortment of earrings! That night she said "I guess I need to get my ears' pierced now." Wednesday was a Minimum Day at her school, so we headed to the mall to get them done! She invited along her friend, Diana for support. She did great and is so proud of her new look!

Valentines Gifts

Last year, I went crazy and bought up a ton of these cute mailboxes when Target had them! I have decided that I need to use up the supplies I have in my stamp room, so this year's Valentines for my mom's bible study table were these cute mailboxes.
Supplies Used:
  • I {Heart} Hearts from the Occasions Mini (p. 14)

  • Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions Folder

  • Sending Love Specialty Paper

  • Heart punches from SU!

We did our study on 1 Corinthians 13 at SMILES, so it worked out perfectly!

Below, are the Valentines I made for Kayley's class. They turned out great!!

Love Bandit Birthday Card!

I love that Stampin' Up!'s stamp sets can be used for more than one occasion! I used the Love Bandit tree on this Birthday card. The birthday saying is from the new Well Scripted set - find it in the Occasions Mini. Love the font and it has so many great sayings in it! One of my favorite new sets! The New Sending Love Epoxy Brad in Chocolate Chip adds just a little bit to the card!

I am wearing a pair of shoes.
They are ugly shoes.
Uncomfortable shoes.
I hate my shoes.
Each day I wear them, and each day I wish I had another pair.
Some days my shoes hurt so bad that I do not think I can take another step.
Yet, I continue to wear them.
I get funny looks wearing these shoes.
They are looks of sympathy.
I can tell in others eyes that they are glad they are my shoes and not theirs.
They never talk about my shoes.
To learn how awful my shoes are might make them uncomfortable.
To truly understand these shoes you must walk in them.
But, once you put them on, you can never take them off.
I now realize that I am not the only one who wears these shoes. There are many pairs in this world.
Some woman are like me and ache daily as they try and walk in them.
Some have learned how to walk in them so they don't hurt quite as much.
Some have worn the shoes so long that days will go by before they think about how much they hurt.
No woman deserves to wear these shoes.
Yet, because of these shoes I am a stronger woman.
These shoes have given me the strength to face anything.
They have made me who I am.
I will forever walk in the shoes of a woman who has lost a child.
