valentine’s toys are easy to lurve

I’m not usually into hearts and pink and frills. In fact, my parents poke fun at me every time they notice a wayward heart or pink sock attach itself to Birdie. I think I’ve learned to give in to the smaller “accents” and worry more about the full-on head-to-toe pink ensembles! Ah, parenting, it’s really all about compromise, isn’t it?

But when Valentine’s Day comes knocking? Suddenly we can allow hearts to appear in those extra-corny places and enjoy them for what they are. Lovely little symbols of love. I’m ok with that, I really am. How about you? Do you embrace the holiday or consider Valentine’s Day to be Hallmark’s evil mind-control device? Somewhere in-between perhaps?

By the way, I need your help. I’m thinking up some fun printables for Valentine’s Day as my little love token for all of my favorite readers (that’d be you!).
Any requests? Suggestions? Ideas? I’d love to get your input! Cards, paper dolls, paper toys, favor boxes, art prints, etc.? What’s your pleasure? What am I forgetting? Share in the comments, or chat with me on facebook or twitter!

That’s my thoughts too – I think most of the toys I post about are things that inspire me for that one-future-day collection of toys I intend to design for me. :)
Keep me posted on your results!

I don’t even understand how I finished up right here, however I assumed this submit was once great.
I don’t recognize who you’re but certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger when you are not already.

Excellent website you have here but I was curious about
if you knew of any message boards that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
I’d really love to be a part of community where I can get suggestions from other experienced people that share
the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
Thanks a lot!
