Valentine’s Day 2015

hearts lollipop

Can you believe it’s already February? I feel like we just had the Christmas break. This year is just flying by. With Valentine’s Day being just a few days away, I really needed to get a move on it.

I thought about just going with one of the adorable free printables I found on Pinterest. After all, I feel like I’m still recovering from Ben’s birthday party which was a couple of weeks ago. (I still need to write a post on that, yikes.)  However, on a recent trip to Target, I found these adorable heart-shaped lollipops. And better yet, they were on sale for $1 for a 6 pack! Hooray! Don’t you just love good Target finds?

Once I found these, I knew what I wanted to make. I did a quick “drawing” of Ben in Adobe Illustrator. I initially made it black and white but once Ben saw it he said, “Mom, add more details!”, which is something I always tell him to do in his drawings 🙂 So, with Ben as my art director, we picked out the colors for his shirt, pants and shoes. I must say, I like it a lot better. Maybe I have a little budding artist on my hands. Once printed, I just cut a small slit on the hand and put the lollipop right though. So simple but so cute.
