Seriously, not a big Valentine's Day fan. Ten years ago, on a cold, snowy Feb 14th I signed the first of many divorce papers. But something happened this year- perhaps its the almost 2 years of Covid craziness but I felt the need to send a bit of love out into the universe.
I decided to make my own Valentines. I put on some music, found some old magazines, a glue stick and random bits of paper. Just like a 12 year old working on a fun school project I had a blast.
You don't have to make cards. Buying cards from local artist is a great way to support talent. There are so many cute small batch cards.
Of course, you don't need to make "Valentine" cards. It's always appropriate to send a message of cheer to a family member or friend. I love to send and receive mail. It's so much fun to open your mail box and instead of a bill or letter from the IRS, there's a card from a friend.
