A Little Love

We don't go nuts at Valentine's Day around here. There aren't scads of balloons and flowers. Or huge boxes of chocolates and perfume. (Although this year, there did seem to be scads of bacon. If you're a fan try these pancakes and these cookies FOR SURE. If you're not, let's just pretend I never mentioned it.) We do like to do a little something for the kids though.

This year, in addition to some new crayons to replace all the ones they baked, I made a trio of Purl Bee frogs.





These frogs are SO easy to make and are a big hit. My kids have not put them down now for two days. Cal (at almost 7 years old) practically had a panic attack when we couldn't find his last night. Super fun and easy if you need a reason to spread a little handmade love......Valentine's Day or not.

You are one seriously crafty momma.

And your cat knows it too!

How cute. I'm not surprised that they're well-loved. One of my German teachers in school used to have a frog like that. Looking back, I'm not too sure why she was bringing it to school, but still...

Okay I am in love with those frogs. And I suppose if I had ever stepped foot in a JoAnns I would know what all these crafty gals are talking about, but I digress. I just admire the skillz of others.
