Make Your Own Valentine's Cards

What ever happened to hand made cards? I know, I know... life gets busy and it's hard to follow through on things like that.

But I have a couple ideas that can help you meet in the middle! We have a great make-your-own cards kit. Made in the USA and only $10.50, this kit comes with 10 blank 4" x 6" cards, over 250 pop out shapes, 10 envelopes, and a glue stick. Read more about it here.

Another fun idea could be to attend our Shrinky Dink event tomorrow and create some heart shape designs to add to your cards.

I always sort of hope for one of those fancy hand made Valentine's each year... the kind with the doily and lace. But I've come to grips with the fact that I might only see those if I make them myself!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Remember Shrinky Dinks?

I think one of the best things about Shrinky Dinks would be that anybody can do it. My friends bring their kids, but they end up making earrings and other great things for themselves that are one of a kind and beautifully artistic too!

Back by popular demand, we just decided last minute to have another Shrinky Dinks play date this Friday from 12p -3p!

Check out our photos from last time. And watch the video for a better idea of just what fun it can be.
If you can, come on in our Fallbrook store and learn all the in's and out's of creating Shrinky Dinks! If you can't make it, check out this really cool video on how to make your own designs by recycling plastic. I thought it was a really cute little video, so thanks to the makers for putting it on youtube!

If you give it a try, let us know how it works! And if you make a video, we'd love to share it on our blog. Have fun, and hope to see you soon!
