Classroom Valentines


 I remember the days when we would exchange Valentines in school.  It was so thrilling to select "just the right" card for the person you were giving them to - taking extra care! not to give a lovey dovey one to a boy!! There was one exception I recall.  I "loved" a boy named John M.  I wrote out his card professing my great love but NATURALLY kept my identity a secret. I was really shocked when he came up to me and told me he knew the profession of love came from me! WOW I said "how did you know"? he said you are the only person I know who spells my name wrong → → Jonh ← ← ugh! the agony! especially because he said he didn't like me AT ALL!  heehee trauma of being a grade schooler!!

These are a bit different than the Valentines I used to give but these are the ones my darling granddaughter, Katelyn, will be giving to her second grade classmates tomorrow.  : ) with the amazing inspiration from Becky Roberts I created just over 30 of these sweet treats!

I want to show the size comparison of these adorable little cups that would be perfect when filled with candy for Valentines Day like I did or a Baby Shower favor or welcome to the neighborhood or workplace gift or just about anything where you want to surprise and bless someone!!
Not to leave my 3 year old grandson out... he is just a toddler but I created some treats for his daycare class as well.  : )
Enjoy the rest of your day today : ) We are getting some snow again but at least the temperature has risen a bit!

Warm INKY hugs!!

Your story did bring back some memories. We laugh now but at the time I wished a piano would drop on my head! No doubt these little treats will be greatly appreciated by the giver and recipient. Happy Valentine's Day and have a lovely weekend!
