I love this season of exchanging cards and giving sweets and special gifts to our loved ones. I think my children get more cards at Valentine’s than they do before Christmas!
Valentine’s Day brings back sweet memories from when I was a kid. We’d make homemade valentines with my mom from red and pink construction paper, doilies, and markers. The night before we’d bake cookies or cupcakes with mom and then I’d haul these into school, my backpack bulging. At school, we taped our poster board envelopes that had been lovingly coloured onto the front of our desks and we walked around the classroom dropping our valentine cards into each others’ envelopes. Oh, the delicious excitement when we went to open them at the end of the day.
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. The stores are brimming with red and pink. Are you going to make something special or buy something from a local artisan? Either way, your loved ones will appreciate the extra thought you put into it.
If you are thinking about making or giving something unique and hand-crafted now is the time to plan! Here are a few craft supplies, downloadable files and finished products to get you started! Happy Valentines’ Day to you!
