Love Letter Station

I’m pretty sure I’m OBSESSED with the Target One Spot…like seriously addicted.  If you follow @craftingchicks on Instagram, you can see us post a lot of our Target dollar finds.  And for some reason this month…things have even been cuter!  Are you in love too?:) I found these mini mailboxes at Target (in the One Spot) and couldn’t wait to set up a little “LOVE LETTER STATION” for my kiddos!  They were so excited about this! With the help of the adorable American Crafts Embellishments, Stickers, Pens, Chalkboard clips, & washi tape, we were able to create the cutest little station.  All of these Items can be found at the Dollar Spot and range from $1-$3….BUT hurry fast and get to the nearest Target…this stuff goes quick! Here’s how we set it up our Lovely Letter Station! Using a chalk marker I added monograms to these mini chalkboard clips.  I added these to each of my kids mini mailbox with [Read More…]

A Healthy Valentine with FREE Printables

Cutie Valentine: A Healthy Treat with FREE Printable

Hey there! I’m Sydney from Tastefully Frugal and I am so excited to be here today sharing one of my (and my boys’) favorite treats. I didn’t really realize it until I had kids and found it much harder to lose that extra ten pounds; but it seems like the winter holidays are all centered around food. Ok, maybe not centered around it, but doesn’t it seem like Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Valentine’s Day are all filled with warm, delicious, not-so-healthy-for-you foods? No wonder by the time spring comes I have to kick my work-out plan up a notch; the last five months have been spent indulging in a long line of sweet treats. This year I knew I wanted to make a few healthier choices for myself, and my family. The only way to not eat candy and chocolate is to not have those things in the house. You see, I have no will power when it comes to sweets. [Read More…]

Glittery Valentine Candy Dishes

Glittery-Valentine-Dishes

Disclaimer: This project is sponsored by Elmer’s. Do you love this playfulness of Valentine’s Day like I do?  I love to add a little fun flare to my Valentine’s decor and what better way then with GLITTER! I decided the best way to do that this year was to add that fun sparkle to some plain white dishes, some in cute heart shapes.  I snagged some Elmer’s Craft Bond Glitter and got to work. I followed all package directions and made sure my dishes were clean and ready to go. Applied the included glue, just a thin layer, and then let the glittery fun begin. I shook off the excess glitter and then let the dishes set so the glue could dry completely before I did anything else. Next, I took some Elmer’s Glue-All and put a thin layer of that over top of the glitter so that it would seal it in.  I don’t plan on washing these pieces in my dishwasher [Read More…]

Valentine Happy Mail – Party in a Box

SONY DSC

Valentine’s Day is hands down my favorite time of year to send mail. A pink envelope in the mailbox is a very happy surprise in the dead of winter! I took it a little further with this party-in-a-box for my nieces and nephews. I’m a sucker for holiday sprinkles, it is impossible for me to walk by an end cap of jars full of colorful little jars of jimmies and holiday shapes without stopping. I just can’t. I mean, look how cute these are. As my collection kept expanding I realized it’s actually quite difficult to use an entire container of sprinkles per holiday. Let alone 3 or 4 containers. That’s when I it hit me that if I divided them into small containers I could share! And if there’s one thing I love more than sprinkles it is sending happy mail to my sisters and the nieces and nephews. Someone’s got to be the favorite aunt, and why shouldn’t [Read More…]

Don’t Burst My Bubble Valentine

dont-burst-my-bubble

I was walking through Target and happened upon a box of bubbles.  I just knew they would make a great Valentine! It was a box of 24 bubbles for just over $3.00 at Target, but here are some on Amazon as well if you wanted a larger quantity.  Go look in the party supplies and you can throw this together in no time. All you need is this printable, the bubbles, and some twine (or glue).  I love how cute they are and every kid loves bubbles.
