    You knock my socks off!! Wow. I totally crack myself up.
    I LOVE the sock one… (obviously) although, I imagine if I were your girls, I would like the ribbon or rhinestone one.

    Are they taking these to school? In that weird exchange of giving everyone in class cards, whether you like them or not? Do they still do that? Is there candy involved?

    I like all your ideas! They are so cute, my favourites are the ones with ribbons and the ones with socks! Different but cute!

    I “heart” these cards! The simplicity of a card is always what makes me fall in love with it. They are simple, perfect, and sweet. Nice job Alex!

    You totally thought outside the box (or the drawer) with the socks. HA HA! Great idea! Lets face it…we all lose socks in the laundry (where do they go?) so this is a fun way to use that lonely sock. 🙂

    So cute and clever! To be quite honest, the sock one is my absolute favorite! Very outside the box. I’m going to have to do that! It appears I’m not the only one to love the sock card! 🙂

    I don’t think I’ve ever used my “cookie” cutters for making cookies either, only crafting…I love these!

    I read your comment about trying to take photographs in the winter in our climate during Daylight Savings Time. I so agree. I have to take my photographs on the weekend and hope for a relatively sunny day. Love your creative ideas for the valentine cards! ~Thea

    Alex, these are all really cute and creative! I really like the twine that you revisited from Christmas and the sock is so fun. I get holes in clothing all the time and it makes me so mad because I love the fabric. This is a brilliant way to repurpose it. And just so you know, I think you’re photos are perfection! 🙂

    Each one of these is a brilliant idea in and of itself; girl, you’ve got creativity in droves.

    I loved how the ribbon one almost looked like washi tape (I have a slight washi tape obsession…although I’ve yet to acquire some). And you know I was a huge fan of your twine garland, so I love the remake for Valentine’s Day. So whimsical! The sock one might be my favorite. I would have never guessed it upon seeing the heart…makes me want to scour our sock drawer for some craft victims….
