In a world full of Spongebob, Minecraft, Xmen and Micky Mouse I’m glad I have the craftiness to help my kids stand out in the piles of mediocre. This year for Valentine’s Day Shae will be handing out something more exciting and lovable with these Animal Thumbprint Valentine Bookmarks.

Fingerprints make everything cuter. The personal touch shows the recipient that the gift was made especially for them from the heart. These bookmarks are also useful.  Shae is reading more and more each day and I know a bookmark would come in handy for her.

    Duck – I’m quackers over you!
    Dog – bow wow wow, you’re great (sorry not the best)
    Whale – you’re a whale of a tail!
    Cat – you’re purr-officially my favorite
