**Last Minute Valentine Idea!**

February 2013


Are you looking for an easy last minute Valentine idea? I made these super easy Valentines for my daughters ballet class!

:: I got 6 squeeze-it drinks for $1 at Walmart and a bag of Kisses for $1.50.

:: Stuck the Kisses in a bag

:: Put a ribbon on it

:: And you're done!

I made this little tag to put on them as well. You can find the font here.

These would be great to print on address labels and just stick on.

So easy and super cheap too!!


Super Easy Kids Valentine!

February 2013


If you are looking for a super easy Valentine idea for the kiddos to do, it doesn't get much easier or cuter than this!

This is something the recipient can cherish forever!

All you need is a little bit of paint and pair of little feet and a cute little hand!

I had my little girl put her hand print and my little boy put his footprints on the paper.

The great thing about this craft is the kiddos will have a lot of fun doing it too!

These would be great to make up for any family members you were planning on buying a card for!


What Do Food Expiration Dates Mean?

February 2013


They are found on thousands of products at your local grocery store. I’m talking about all those ”Sell By” or “Use By” dates.

But what do they really mean? It’s probably not what you think, so here’s a breakdown:

“Expiration Date” means that. It’s the last day the food item should be eaten or used.

“Best if Used By (or Before)” date suggests eating the product before the date for the best possible quality.

“Sell-By” date suggest you buy the product before the printed date, but it doesn’t mean that product has spoiled…yet.

“Use-By” is self explanatory. Basically the last date to use the product at the peak of quality.
