Valentine Keeps

 My little Valentine boys are grown, but I have kept so many of their sweet creations.  
Going through the keeps chest this morning was so much fun.
  I thought I'd share a few.

Little hands and feet grew to be big hands and size 13 feet.
I thought some of you Moms of little peeps might want to do this project.
Hands for flower petals and feet for leaves- I love it!

This is my oldest's work.  Yes, it says '89. 
 Geez, time flies.

I found these in the chest, too. 
 I had started a project with them years ago and never finished.
Mm hmm, back in the dinosaur age before all of our tech-y stuff.
I tried to find photos that depicted us at the same age.
Think I'll do an updated version of these and actually finish them.

Attention to detail makes a mom proud.  

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!


  1. the hallmark thing is greatness!

  2. What a sweet post! I ran across a kid valentine last night, and it never crossed my mind! Cute kiddos, too.

  3. I miss those days, glad we have our treasure chest.

  4. You have just validated my laminating obsession of all things holiday-related to keep and hang up once my boys are grown. Thank you. Everybody else just thinks I'm nuts.

  5. Such sweet memories. And the Hallmark Crown?! That is adorable!

  6. Tina- How very sweet! I have saved a lot of my kids things, too. The kids are really cute! xo Diana

  7. Happy Valentines Day to You!
    Those are so sweet. I do love the hallmark.
    My son called me today and asked me what Britt (daughter) got me. I told him nothing and he said, "Oh good, I didn't get you anything either I had school all day!"
    So it makes those little colored cards cherished so much more. LOL

  8. So sweet. I love sitting in the middle of my living room going through boxes of pictures that my children have created for me over the years! You feel the love that came out from those Crayolas onto that paper!

    The Hallmark was awesome!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me your thoughts. I appreciate each and every one!
