Hi everyone - thanks SO much for all the comments you've left this week. I read each & EVERY comment - especially the ones that contain things you'd like to see more of on the blog. (sidenote: you have ONE DAY left to leave a comment HERE if you haven't already...for a chance to win a prize!)

I've already started acting on some of your feedback - so with that, I give you some fun Treats for Valentine's Day - plus a video showing you how I made them!

These are great because you can stick anything inside them - and adapt them to ANY holiday or occasion. I had a few people say they would like to see things that are more practical - things that can be used...instead of just candy. This sort of combines the 2. I had some fun pencils lying around so I thought I'd find a way to creatively wrap them up as a fun little gift.

And to respond to even MORE awesome feedback from my readers, I thought I'd whip up a "boy version". These are some robots from both Cosmo Cricket (paper) and Hero Arts (stamp). What boy doesn't love Robots!?!!

I added a wooden heart from Martha Stewart to give it a small Valentine's touch...but nothing too girly. (the Robot was colored using Copics). The pencil has motorcycles on it. Very "boy".

OK, here's the "how to" video! If you can make it through listening to my corniness...then I give you credit. LOL. I HATE listening to myself on these videos, ugh!
