We’ve got a great Valentine’s project to work on this weekend with the kids and have some DIY fun! Our amazing Creative Director Hillary is at it again! In addition to creating personalized growth charts, big sister shirts, big brother shirts, and 1st birthday shirts for our line of personalized baby gifts, she’s come up with this fabulous — and free — DIY Valentine’s Day Felt Envelopes that includes some super adorable cards to print and give to friends.
• 9″ x 12″ felt sheets
• thread or glue (you don’t need to sew these envelopes, you could use a fabric glue)
• 8.5″ x 11″ paper (for printing the fun, free and fabulous Valentine cards)
1- Download the 2 page PDF of our adorable Valentine cards here . Included is a colorful version and a Valentine’s color themed version.
2- Our felt sheets are 9″ x 12″. Cut the felt sheet so you have 2 rectangles 9″ x 4.5″. Then you will have a little leftover piece that you can use for heart “stamps”.
3- Adhere one of your hearts to the upper right corner of one of your 9″ x 4.5″ rectangles. Leave about 2″ at the top for the flap of your envelope.
4- Fold your rectangle so you have the flap and stitch up the sides. Then stitch a button on & cut a hole for the button to go through.
5- Print and cut the Valentine cards.
6- Use the cards and envelopes over and over again for endless hours of play.
We hope you enjoy this project! Thank you again Hillary for all that you do to make the best personalized baby gifts and fun freebies for our customers! And don’t forget to share your pics with us on Instagram #petitelemon. Cheers!

Do you ever feel like you aren’t quite cutting it? Or do you ever feel like you are just trying to keep yourself afloat? I think these kinds of feelings go hand-in-hand with being a mom because it’s a tough job. If you have ever felt like this, remember this today (and every day). Be gentle with yourself, you’re doing the BEST you can!
Are your kids asking for a pet for Christmas? I know I always did as a kid, but we couldn’t get one because my sister was allergic. If your kids are asking for a pet, but for whatever reason you can’t get one either, this is a perfect project for them.
Instead of buying a “real” pet, Print a Pet instead. Your kiddos will enjoy coloring this oversized puppy, octopus, or kitty.
This Print a Pet can be downloaded for free and then printed at minimal cost as a Staples, FedEx Office, or most local print shops. Ask them to print it as an engineering print, so it’s super inexpensive. Our print only cost $3.50!!

We all need a little inspiration to get us started – especially on a Monday. I loved this quote because I think we are all guilty of this at one time or another. Today remember this…. Don’t Let Silly Things Steal Your Happiness!
These cute little buddies are showing off their new Valentine’s Day tees from Petite Lemon. Who wouldn’t want to give them a little squeeze after seeing their cute faces?!?
Check out all our Valentine’s Day tees on our website and be sure to order before February 2nd to get them in time for Valentine’s Day.
As a new mom you receive a lot of advice from other people. And thank goodness for that because (most of the time) the advice is really helpful. Before my first baby was born the best advice I received was to write everything they do down, because they told me I’d be grateful to have it to look back and remember. And as a new mom if it’s now written down, you don’t remember. 🙂
My sister gave me a calendar for my baby shower that I keep in the nursery so I could document my babies “firsts” along with favorite memories of each day, the things my baby was learning to do, etc. Babies grow and change quickly, so I’m grateful that I have this little keepsake to document the first year.
Download this FREE BABY CALENDAR so you can document the big and little milestones of your babies first year. After you download the file, take it to your local printer (most printers allow you to upload the file to their website for printing, so it’s that much easier).

It’s a new year so of course a new calendar is in need, which is why we took a quick break from designing personalized baby gifts, big brother shirts, big sister shirts, and more to create a free customizable calendar to download.
Like our super popular birthday infographic, this calendar can be downloaded and taken to local printer, like FedEx Office, Staples, or Alphagraphics, and printed as an engineer print at a jumbo 36”x48” or smaller at 24”x32” or 12”x16”. We’ve found the cost to be no more than $10.
Once you’ve printed it, fill in Our Year of Awesome with important dates like birthdays, anniversaries, vacations, baby showers, and other special family events. Have fun with the kiddos decorating it with stickers, photos, etc.
Here is the link to download the file in black or gray.
We’d love to see how you customize this downloadable calendar, so please take photos and post to Instagram with #petitelemon or tag us on Facebook. And hopefully our personalized baby gifts are a part of these celebrations all year too!
The year 2015 is almost drawing to a close. When you think back over the last 12 months, what was your favorite book, movie, or song? What did you learn? What do you want to do next year? Compile your thoughts on this Year In Review worksheet.
This Year In Review worksheet is a fun New Years party game for kids and adults. It’s fun to not only remember your favorites but hear about other people’s favorites too. 🙂 Fill out the worksheet every year and save them as a keepsake so you can remember what you loved each and every year.

When you are having a bad day, just remember that it’s ok to be grumpy sometimes.
