Yesterday we made magazine hearts inspired by Green Baby Guide, then made hearts on sticks inspired by simple as that (we used coffee stirrer sticks).
We plan to give the hearts on sticks to family and friends on Valentine's Day.
We had more magazine hearts than coffee stirrer sticks so we also used some to make a heart mobile with a stick from our nature basket and bits of ribbon.
Sunnyboy found a picture of a dog in one of the magazines we cut the hearts from and it's his favourite magazine heart. As I have an appointment at the IVF clinic on Valentine's Day, Sunnyboy decided this heart should be for our babies (our frozen embryos). He told me I can take it with me to give to the doctor and "ask him to put it on the freezer".
