Because I am occasionally tight-fisted

I made MM's Valentine's cards to hand out to his class this past Friday.

They consisted of: 2 pieces of clip art (a wizard's hat and a magic wand) put on the upper-right-hand side of a normal 8.5X11 sheet of paper + WORDART (flipped! Upside down!) on the lower-left-hand side of the same sheet of paper that read "Have a magical Valentine's Day! From [MM's real name]"

Then I folded them all in quarters and MM addressed them.

I KNEW there was a good reason we have at least 6 kinds of printers in the house!

You're such a good mom. I bet MM loved it!

We would just buy the store ones!

I am so glad I don't have kids and I am out of public school.

We need to talk about lunch this week. Thursday works best for me!

most years, we ended up with hastily-bought store cards. better years, we made our own -- but being dinos, we couldn't do computer graphics. we relied heavily on doilies and stickers.

ya done good!

We have six kinds of printer, but one kind of mommy: the smart kind.

You should bottle MS. Really. And good for you on the Valentine's. I fell down on the crafting front this year, and just gave away Crayola color-your-own ones this year. Though I DID teach a class that involved chunking out a treat box on my Ellison machine and decorating it, then filling it was pink, white, and red M and M's. So, I didn't *totally* drop the ball.

Good thing that Offspring is "too cool" for Valentine's. I wouldn't have had time to make any for her.
