Last Minute Valentine's Day Tshirt Makeover

I hadn’t planned on posting anything for Valentines Day.Necessity intervened and voilà here is the last-minute Valentine Day T-shirt Makeover I did for civvies day at school tomorrow.

If you follow me on Instagram you will notice that my youngest is camo , army crazy at the moment.He wishes he could sleep in his army clothes he says (best I find him cute camo jammies soon lol ).The request was he didn’t want to wear the required red and white or red and black but could he please wear his camo shirt.

Mommy to the rescue!

With some need and thread I got to work and this is the outcome.Its not permanent and will be unpicked before the short goes to wash.

I’ve wanted to do this for as long as I can remember but it wasn’t exactly age appropriate.I played it over the December Holidays with my little guy and he loved it.

I figured we would spoil all the kids in his classroom with a little yummy Jelly Bean Tic-Tac-Toe (I used to just call it Noughts and Crosses in my day). I bought the jelly beans from Clicks for R14.99 a pkt.See previous post to see what the packet looks like.

Valentine’s Day – Coconut Macaroons

gmfamacaroons-cover

These are probably my go to sweet treats for just about any occasion.

I tried them for the 1st time last year and they were winners all round.You can see the link here

If you follow me on Instagram you would have noticed I played with colour over the Christmas period and they looked divine.I actually had to hide them because they kept slowly disappearing throughout the day.

They are super easy to make – perhaps even a great idea for those Cake and Candy sale 7th Graders.

What you need:

  • 200g Pkt of Coconut
  • 1 Tin of Condensed Milk
  • Food Colouring – Optional
  • Sprinkles etc – Optional
  • Silicone Baking sheet – or a well oiled/sprayed Baking Tray
  • Spoons or a Small Cookie Scoop

To Do:

Preheat Oven to  200 Degrees Celsius.

Mix the Condensed Milk and the Coconut together in a bowl until all combined – this is the perfect time to add in your food  colouring if you so desire – I used Red. Spoon out into small-sized balls onto the baking tray , decorate as desired.I used pretty little Silver Candy Coated Heats (Nicoletta) and little white Fondant Confetti Sugar Hearts.

So as you can see they are definitely Little Yummy Winners and perfect for Bake Sales etc and treating your family and friends.

My Valentines Day favourites at Woolworths

valentines-day-hearts-pink

V-day

Yup its commercialized , yup red roses cost a crazy bundle but I still love it.

As a mom I’ve come to realized that these little silly days form part of teaching.Valentines Day turns into teaching a child about thinking of someone else they care about, that they love.Teaching them that V-day is a special day but you can make someone feels special any day of the year.

Have you ever wondered why you get the gifts you do from your partner?

I have – we were brought up in a home where my dad spoiled my mom with jewellery and her favourite -perfumes , when it came to gift giving.

Do you think children learn this from their parents?

I do?

What does my brother primarily spoil my lovely Sis-in-law to be with when it comes to gifts???……..Jewellery and Perfume

What does my husband and brother-in-law usually spoil their partners with?……….Flowers

I want to raise sons that are considerate and thoughtful towards their partners everyday even on such a mundane day as Valentines Day.

Woolworths is my favourite one stop Valentines Day Shop

Below are a few of my favourite V-day goodies ideal to spoil your loved ones,friends,work colleagues/staff and even to send to school for the kids in your childs class.
