I’ve been working on some cute Valentine’s ideas for my little Valentines thanks to my creative friends! Check out what I have been working on and make sure you click on the blogs to see the tutorials and their projects! Best of all these all took about 5 minutes or less to create!
These candy kabobs are for the kiddies, they are cute but a little trickier than they look! My friend Sara from Mom Endeavors shared this idea, check out her tutorial and cute candy kabobs here : http://www.momendeavors.com/2012/02/candy-kabobs.html
These Washi Tape Valentine’s Mailboxes are cute, right? My friend Andrea at WorleyHouseBlog.com shares her tutorial (and mailboxes which look even cuter than mine) here: http://www.worleyhouseblog.com/2013/02/washi-tape-decorated-mailboxes-for.html
My friend Allison at Allfortheboys.com is probably one of the most talented people I know when it comes to digital design. She creates these cute lunchbox notes and she created these ones for Valentine’s Day!

Looking for a Teacher’s Valentine’s gift from your little kids? This Valentine’s Day craft is easy for kids with mom’s help and includes a printable below!
This gift features Pink and Red Tootsie Pops. The Tootsie pops are tied together with Twine and placed in Styrofoam for a steady base.
The “bouquet” is then placed in a Cello Bag w/ tissue paper to complete the look!
The Valentine attached says: You are my favorite one of the bunch! You can get this free Valentine’s Card printable by clicking the image and saving to your computer.
I purchased the suckers at Safeway.
The heart cello bags are from the Target Dollar Spot.
The Styrofoam was from an old wreath that I use to piece out when I need a Styrofoam fix.

So its a few days before Christmas and you haven’t done your holiday baking? I have some recipe ideas that I am sharing from other fabulous bloggers that take less than 30 minutes to create and can be given as gifts!
I have a couple ideas above:
Dip Oreos (or Peppermint Joe Joes from Trader Joes) in white chocolate candy coating and sprinkle with peppermint. It hardens in about 10 minutes, perfect neighbor gift!
Give the gift of flavored hot cocoa and chocolate dipped spoons! Just dip plastic spoons in melting chocolate, sprinkle with peppermint and let harden. The spoons can then be stirred into the hot cocoa!
Below is a roundup of some of my favorite last minute treats, most take under 30 minutes from start to finish!
Sweet and Salty Peanutbutter Balls from Cleverly Inspired looks like a truffle but has a nice salty sweet mix to it!
Easy Rocky Road Fudge from Ella Claire Inspired takes less than 10 minutes to make and makes a great gift.
I’ve dipped oreos in chocolate but never peanut butter crackers, another sweet and salty treat from my friend Angie at The Country Chic Cottage!
Love these fudge marshmallows, they would be a perfect addition to a hot cocoa gift!
I’ve made peppermint bark before but never have I shaped them, Michelle shares a great tutorial on shaped peppermint bark!
How fun are these Chinese Christmas Trees? They would be fun to create with the kids on Christmas!
These easy Salted Caramel Turtles from A Pumpkin and A Princess look delicious and require only 4 ingredients!
I love Peppermint Bark and I love that there are different ways you can do it including this way from Meredith!
Love this recipe for Easy Rolo Turtles. 10 minutes from start to finish, chocolate, caramel and deliciousness!
