Making Rose Soap

For generations, roses have symbolized love, passion, and romance. Many consider a rose to be the official flower of Valentine’s day. The flower has been featured in many forms of media, taking center stage in mushy movies and television shows, sometimes even playing a symbolically notorious role, as in the film ‘American Beauty’.

My friend emailed me a few pictures of a dining room set she wanted to try and update.

The minute I saw the episode, I recall wanting to go to the Salvation Army or…

Cute Valentine Ideas for the Classroom

I know I have a while until my little one starts going to school, but I can’t help but be excited to participate in all the fun classroom activities.

That week, we would make “mailboxes” out of old shoe boxes to prepare for all the Valentine’s Day goodies coming our way. Even though I knew that every kid gave a Valentine to everyone in the class.  I still got excited to receive one from the…
