Valentine's Round Up!

So, I was at Walmart last night, and holy smokes, what a crowd in the Valentine's section!!! It got me all in a tizzy, it did, worried I wouldn't have something for my peeps. Thankfully, after three times around the aisles, I did find the stuffy Toad had spied on a previous visit, and a novel for Mario. Whew! 

Over the last few days though, I have been browsing my favourite sites for Valentines and V-day ideas. And, instead of re-inventing the wheel, I thought I would share them with you. Here are some great links to printable valentines and other fun ideas:

Positively Splendid recently posted 12 Unique Valentines You Can Make... and they are all so cute! Here are just a couple; visit her here for her complete collection.

I found these next two ideas courtesy of  Pass the Cereal:

If your child likes to give a small treat with her valentines, this is a wonderful idea: simply pick up some  small bouncy balls at the dollar store, then print out these "you make my heart bounce" tags from Nellie Design!

Fortune Tellers never seem to go out of style. I think the collection here at the house rivals the one I had growing up! Check out Design Mom for a printable V-day version.... and instruction on how to fold them, just in case you forgot!

This idea from Better Homes and Gardens is uber-sweet and you can customize it with one of the saying from the site above, or your own terms of endearment! I think I will do a variation of it as cards for my kids this year:
