My Tiny Valentine


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Happy Valentines Day!

I know the 14th of February envokes a lot of mixed feelings for people. Some think it's a great excuse to celebrate love and romance, where as others think it's just an excuse for card companies to make money and begrudge every couple they know. I must say, throughout the last decade I have been on both sides of the luurrvvee fence. 

Which ever way you feel this year, you can't deny the cuteness of handmade gifts from tiny little people.

Of course Matt and I have also done special things for each other but this year, I want an excuse to get my coloured card out with Baby Glitter and so we had a little crafting session. You may have seen a sneak peak of it in THIS post.

I have to admit that after she had done the initial paint stamping, the cutting and sticking was my department. The finished results were inspired by something we saw on Pinterest, so I shan't take all the credit. I'm really pleased with how these turned out and hope the recipients enjoy the love flavoured sentiment.

However you are or aren't celebrating Saint Valentine today, I hope you are happy and with people you love. If you're feeling a bit lonesome, why not have a chat in the comments? Us Sprinklerinos are a very loving crowd and I'm sure someone will have something kind to say!

Let me know what you've done today!



Toodlepip!

  7. Those are sooooo cute! That's such a lovely idea! :)

    I am definitely indifferent when it comes to V-day. I do like the colors that represent it, however.

    P.S. This is random, but Louise, I find it so weird that you've only "liked" one pin on Pinterest, haha. In my opinion, the "like" button is a bit pointless for Pinterest, although I have to admit I, myself, have "liked" hundreds of pins...

  10. Hi Louise! I's such a 'lurker' on Sprinkle of Glitter - I have to admit I don't often post but I check it most days. I just wanted to say I love your blog so much - your posts are so beautiful and heartfelt - I get the feeling you are most probably the most amazing friend to those close to you.

    Anyway, just thought I would say hi! And I LOVE the cards from Baby G! Clare xx

    I'll be spending the day travelling - but I'm not complaining (at all)! :-)

  14. Owhhh I love the cards, unfortunately I do not have a child so I can't give it a go myself :(
    Maybe my boyfriend would be on board for giving it a go haha

    Valentine's day isn't a huge deal for me, but as my boyfriend and I live so far away and it's our first valentine's day together it's a nice excuse to go and spend the weekend with him and his family :)

  23. Awww, hope you have a lovely Valentine's day Louise :) You can't beat a home-made card, eh? Last year I tried my hand at this http://www.skiptomylou.org/2008/02/06/id-snap-at-the-chance-to-be-your-valentine/ - would definitely recommend it as a crafty project for BG when she's a bit older! x

  38. Cutest valentines cards I have ever seen! Darcy should be very proud ;)
    I am one of those who thinks this holiday is just an excuse for people to spend money and for girls to get angry if their significant other doesn't buy them anything...of course perhaps it is because I'm single. But I have the feeling I wouldn't make a big deal out of it even if I was with someone.
    Hope you and Matt have a wonderful day!

  40. Louise, you are literally the sweetest, most loving person i have ever seen. This is so cute, aw x x x

  41. I hate the pressure of valentines day. That you must buy presents and take your loved one out to dinner, and a movie, and chocolate, and make swwet love all night...
    I'm just happy with a nice dinner at home, maybe a movie and holding hand in the sofa. Simple beautiful love. I won't be dictated when I'm suppose to show my love.

    But I must say Louise, that the cards are wonderfull=) I also made a card for my husband, but that was just because it was fun creating, I't could just as easy have been any other ordinary day:)

  57. Those cards are such a cute idea. You should keep one by for when Darcy is older so that she can see how tiny her feet were - I wish I had something like that now!
    I haven't done anything today as I don't have a valentine, however I hope that you and Matt have enjoyed your day and enjoy your evening together xx

    If you're wondering... what is a boy doing here? This isn't even a boy blog, Well, I love Louise's vlogs and find her extremely funny and interesting so it's only natural that I keep up to date on her blog as well.

    Great role model!
    P.S I mentioned Louise as well as a bunch of other YouTubers as my first monthly favourite: vloggers! You can check it out if you like. (http://www.ohmyglen.blogspot.co.uk)

If you're single it's an excuse to treat yourself and indulge or go out with the girls, also if you're in a relationship you get flowers/choccies/random generic v presents and have a lovely time too! I just think it's a happy day :) loove these cards! So sweeeeet :') X

  69. I'm not a HUGE Valentine's Day fan I have to admit, but I say each to their own :) What a lovely idea, these cards are so cute and thoughtful and I'm sure they'll be very much appreciated! My way of marking the day was to do the Celebrity Crush Tag :P

  70. I've been single for a VERY long time, but this Valentine's Day I finally celebrated with my boss Sonia! After a long meeting, we ventured out to McDonald's of all places and had a bite to eat for dinner :) Quite simple, but we both really enjoyed ourselves. Then, when I got home, I showered, crawled into bed and watched my all-time favourite movie Gone With the Wind!

    Happy Valentine's Day all!
