Myself, you ask? No. No big date. No exciting plans with the man of my dreams. Just me and about 200 other people. What the freak? I know, I'll explain.
I was in charge of our party last night at Church. We had a "King of Hearts" Pageant (a total spoof). It was a riot! I will be sure to explain more and post some pics next week. Tonight, I am helping my good friend and neighbor, Desperate Housewife, pull off a 50's style sock-hop Valentine's Dance. She is in charge and I'm a committee member. The Bad News? I have no date. :( The Good News?
Well, I suppose the weekend isn't/wasn't totally a bust. I did help my kids create some pretty awesome Valentine Day Card "mail" boxes. Oh - who am I kidding? They didn't do a thing - I made them all by myself! Of course, being the kind of
1) The Lego Valentine Mailbox
I got 2 Papier-mâché boxes from the craft store. Painted 1 yellow and 1 blue. I cut an opening in the top of the bottom lid, as well as in the bottom of the top box (got that?).
I glued the top box to the lid of the bottom box.
I used 4 round chip-board circles, painted them blue, and glued them to the top box, cut an opening in the top and... voila!
2) The iPod Valentine Box
My daughter wanted a purple iPod for her box. I used a 12" cereal box, so the 12x12 scrapbook paper would work easily. On the back I even added the "apple" logo, but I told her I had to do it backwards so as not to infringe on any copyright laws ... (actually I just accidentally glued it on backwards and realized it too late!)
I used her real headphones and poked them through a small hole in the side of the box.
