XOXO characters

My children are delighted by the idea that letters can stand for hugs and kisses. Just delighted. It's silly but with the feel of budding academia-what's not to delight in? It was like being let in on one of the secrets those mysterious things, letters, hold.

And so I give you, our XOXO characters.

They are full of personality. And l-u-v.

We used glue dots, which the girl child was so in to it moved her to song

"Give us what we want---
We want GLUE DOTS!"

BBD was actually more interested in decorating a scrap. What are you to do?
He is quite proud of his "line AND squiggle".

So I turned it into a bookmark. He thought this was genius.

I am so pl-ea-s-ed with this idea,
so please don't rain on my parade and tell me someone else thought of it first...

ta-da! Rhinestone beauty covering up boring old pin head!

Please check out some of these fabulous linky parties. Wonderful ideas and inspiration await! Thank you!
