Amelia's Valentine Cards-2013

Amelia has some sweet little friends at her babysitter's house, at church, and some adorable online friends as well.
Since Valentine's Day is next week, and we had these amazing Valentine photos from Fresh Art Photography, I thought it would be fun to make a few cute valentines for her friends.

I used one of the photos from Jodie, and then set to work on wording.  I had bought a little pack of chapsticks for this project so I wanted a nerdy Valentine style play on words. Naturally, I started with "Let's STICK together" but I just wasn't feeling it.
Pinterest supplied me with the "Read my LIPS valentine."  I was telling Adam about it and he said are using Lip Balms and "You're the Balm!" came to my mind.
Like, you're the bomb!
I cracked myself up.
So, after adding words using Photoshop Elements, I used a little adhesive and stuck the lip balms onto the Valentines.

Easy, personalized, and cute :)
What are some cute Valentine DIY's that you have seen around lately?

I am so excited to FINALLY announce some big news with you all.  I have teamed up with two other AMAZING moms on a new blog called, MINē.
MINē is a lifestyle blog for the minis in all of our lives.
Here is our little mission statement :

 We sow seeds of fashion but are not limited to. 

We are on a mission - to create, share and inspire.

We radiate a passion -
To CREATE an unforgettable experience for our lovely visitors at MINē. At MINē all are invited to experience the quality of our lovingly hand-picked mini fashion pieces, and bathe in the fun and values we have to share!
To SHARE our affection and joy as loving parents, bringing other parents messages of love and inspiration of style for your mini's. Our fashion and lifestyle speaks so much more than looks, we hope to also offer a gift of hope and joy in parenting.  We plan to share not only inspiration in styling your mini, but giving inspiration in all aspects of life with your mini.
To INSPIRE our fellow parents with fresh, stimulating ideas of fashion, parenting and living life. We constantly provide fun tips and projects on our blog and social marketing channels, all in the hopes to inspire you and yours.

MINē is not your regular mini lifestyle blog. So join us at our visionary mini fashion blog, so that the creations and inspirations we have can extend to yonder and beyond…

Most of my blogging will now be done over there.  I will definitely be back here every once in awhile to share photos of Amelia and monthly pics and such.  I think I am going to focus on posting my Project Life pages on Instagram now (@jmaclean) instead of here.

I feel really blessed to be apart of this team and I know that this blog is going to be HUGE.
Please come over and check it, "follow" us, and stay awhile :)  
We have a HUGE a giveaway week coming up next week for our big launch.
