On our last visit to our favorite antique mall, Emerson (pre-haircut!), fell in love with a little box of Strawberry Shortcake Valentines.

… 

They weren’t even vintage… but she liked them so much that I gave in and splurged.

On Superbowl Sunday she got to work on spicing them up! Blaise helped too.  Beats watching football!  :):)

Of course we had a couple mini pink and red cupcakes while painting!

Littlest Shortcake didn’t help a bit!!  But she still gets credit for wearing her strawberry hat.  :)  Maybe next year she’ll get messy with us!

The final Valentine!  I added the painted sheets, chocolates and twine.

Hope you are enjoying this season with lots of handmade and not-so-handmade creations!

xoxoxoxoxo!
