Our Boom Valentines & An Exchange

There are few things that make me as happy as crafting up some sweet Valentines with my little lady, so much so that I'm hoping both of my daughters will be down with doing this until they are at least in high school. ;)  This was the first year that we actually created our own, we have been sending out cards since Waverly was born (you can see last year's here), but I knew I wanted Waverly to be more involved this year! 

To get inspired, we headed to Target (as we always do), and picked out our favorite treat that had enough pink & red covering it.  We both love Boom Chicka Pop so we went with that, which if you have never had it you should, it is totally amazing & completely addicting.  My job was to create the cards to go with it (I use Serif Craft Artist for this sort of thing & love it), Waverly's was to add the stickers and stamp the outside of the envelope.


Waverly loved it & lasted about five cards in, which honestly impressed me for a two-year old.  I finished while she played, I love this picture of her & her new face lately, I have no idea where she learned it but I can't get enough!

Here are our finished Valentines, Waverly Maye's first ever! :)


We sent our Valentines to some of Waverly's friends in VB, mainly family & kids of our friends, plus we were so excited to be a part of a few gift exchanges with some of our favorite bloggers!  It has been SO much fun going to the mailbox for the past couple of weeks and opening up the cutest messages & treats from sweet babes all over the country (plus Canada!).  I will be sharing the blogs from one of the exchanges next week when the rest of the group posts, & in the meantime, look below Waverly's cute Valentines for a list of some amazing blogs!

  1. Five cards is pretty impressive for a two year old. She looks so enthralled in your pictures. I love lil kid valentine's cards, they are just too cute. I admit though, I thought the card's would say BOOM it's Valentine's day….ooops. Can you tell I'm not a mom, yet?

    A gift exchange, how fun. You got some great goodies! Have a great day!

  5. How CUTE are your Valentines?! Our homemade ones actually look homemade (and horrible, but Mia's scribbles are cute, ha ha!) Next year I will definitely be on the ball with some AMAZING Valentines to send out... since we won't be in the middle of a move like this year, ha!

  6. Caleb has a little face that he makes that reminds me of that one that Waverly is making! We love it when he does that - too cute:) And, ok, so we have never tried Boom Chicka Pop. Where do we find this amazing concoction? I've heard great things! It looks perfect for the cute little valentines that you made!:)
