With three little ones, I have learned that making food and meals into fun shapes is always a win. It’s not always easy though. It can become time-consuming and difficult at times.

You have probably noticed with all my recent Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas and posts, I love making things personal. I like to find unique ways to showcase pictures, keepsakes, etc and share them with loved ones. This past week, I have been playing around on a new (to me) website called Animoto. I am seriously hooked. Within minutes, you can create a personal video with your own photos, videos, music and text. The best part, you can make unlimited 30 second videos for free! It is a great last minute gift that will be sure to please that special someone.  With Valentine’s Day tomorrow, consider making a Video Love Letter.
