As usual, I didn’t get a Valentine’s Day post up until the day itself–which is probably a little ahead for me since I’m usually posting after the fact!
I had come across a couple different versions of using “ewe” on cards over on Pinterest and am a big fan of using sheep since they are so easy to draw. I’m no artist, but a cloud with legs? I can handle that.
The Ladybug thought we should use real cotton at first, which would have been a cool idea too.
I thought we would just use wool (of course). At first I pulled some out of our wool bags from this past spring–big mistake! I forgot how dirty and smelly it was!
It only took a tiny wisp for each tag. The kids were pretty happy with it. They get excited about sharing stuff like this from the farm. It makes a simple Valentine very personal for them. You could also use quilt batting, cotton fluff or cotton balls, or glitter to add a little flair.
I’ve also mentioned before that I’ve been on a bit of a papercrafting supply diet. Ok, ok, I decided not to buy anything until I used up a good portion of my existing stash…and I have definitely stuck with that for paper, ribbon, and stamps for almost 12 months now! And apparently it’s working, because it turns out I’m just about out of pink ribbons. Any pink ribbons. Valentine’s Day has pretty much decimated my pink and red ribbon supply.
I still have a lot of paper though…
