2010 Valentine Ideas!

Last year I had a lot more ideas for couples and significant others. If you are looking for ideas such as these, go to my "2009 Valentine Ideas" post.

This year It seems I collected a lot more craft ideas and tutorials. All are great ideas and fun so check them out and enjoy! However, I did want to share with you what I am wanting to do this Valentines with my kids. If you are going to be stuck home with the kids Valentines night or you and your spouse can't get a sitter, here is a fun idea they will enjoy....

Homemade Heart Shaped Pizza


I am just going to shape the dough into a heart. I do have a really easy and fast recipe I will be using, which I found on Money Saving Mom. "Homemade Pizza under 30 Min." and yes, it takes under 30 minutes and taste delicious!
My kids love helping me make homemade pizza!
