Valentine's Day GatheringTo create some fun Valentine's Day crafts at home, each child invited a friend over yesterday. A few days earlier I made the salt dough that you roll out and I cut heart shapes. These heart ornaments took a few days to dry. The kids painted the hearts at the party. Then they glossed them and put magnets on the back. I think they came out great.
Also, I made heart shaped cookies and had the kids spread pink icing on them and then sprinkled all sorts of fun sugar shaped candies.
Here is a picture of the magnets and one of the big pink cookies. It was hard keeping track of which hearts were edible!
Also, I've finally added an 'about me' section. Philip asked me to tell why I'm here is Paris. If you are interested, just press the "Qui est Auntie M?" button on the left side.
-- said Auntie M in Paris
Thanks for posting about why you are in Paris...and I suppose a big thank you to Philip for asking.
I do have a question, though, did your husband ever find time to write his book?
Enjoying your blog as always,

By the way, about Paris and writing: do you feel like doing a sidebar of your books you've enjoyed regarding Paris?
thanks, Terry in SF

BTW, Loved the previous post about "The Aviator". It sounds like something I'd do.(-:

BM, Well, my daughter's birthday party is this Saturday and the house is a mess (as always) so I have a lot to do before then. Too bad I'd rather be making a pinata for the party and not cleaning...
Margie, The kids always make something surprising or put colors together that I never would, but the end result is always wonderful.

Pat, Yes, I hate to complain and then not do something about it... pet peeve of mine. I think the magnets came out really well though and they were fun to make.
Terry, The cookies look better than they tasted. I've been glued to allrecipes.com trying new recipes, but the sugar cookies just didn't match the ones in the Joy of Cooking that I usually use.
Pregnancyweek, Thank you for your comment. Welcome! I was pretty worried that the children would try to eat the salt dough hearts.. they looked delicious.
