Eat your heart out, Pinterest!

I came home from New Beginnings tonight and this is what I found:


Guy's backpack...jammed full of "Valentines" that he made for his Kindergarten classmates.

He was chomping at the bit to make them, ever since his teacher sent home the list of names and instructed the children to make cards for each other.


I pleaded with him to wait until I could look for some "cute ideas" on Pinterest, but instead, he waited until I left for the evening and he went to town.

(Pretty sweet hearts, huh?)

When I returned home and found this...

...and that...

...and most of all this...

I just smiled to myself and thought..."Eat your heart out, Pinterest!"

This is a true frills, no instructions, no tutorials...

Just straight from the heart...the way that it should be.

Way to show us adults what's up, GUY!

(...Hmmm...I think I need to Pin this!)  ;)


  1. I love them! I think this is way more special, what Valentine's Day used to be. :)

  2. Oh, I love them! I always love when you can tell that kids have done things themselves without us moms interfering to "fix it".

  3. You have raised up a fine young man!   How sweet!!!

  4. I love every card my kids ever made for me. The handmade ones are always the best!


  5. Amen to that!! I have my kids make their friend's birthday cards.  It is so fun and original and heartfelt.  I love that stuff!

  6. So sweet!!!  He was smart to wait till you left.  If he is anything like my kids would know that I never would have gone for that unless it happened just like you found it...then I would have humbly realized, like you, how much better, sweeter, meaningful theirs were...and I would have been blessed to not have one more thing to do that would get thrown away. :)

  7. This is waht my kids do every year and they love it and so do I!!
