I bet we are the only household still making Valentines on February 15th.
It's a pretty messy business.
I know my hubby (who loves order and neatness) will be thrilled when we are done and the coffee table is once again visible.
My 8 year-old's book club meets this afternoon, and she wanted give them hand-made Valentines...all ten of the other girls! It has been a lesson in perseverance for her. There are quite a few hand stitches in each of these little felt pouches. Handmade gifts are fun, but they are also a lot of work.
It saddens me to think that most of the recipients will probably be more excited about the little Hershey bar and the pencil inside the handmade Valentine. But I guess that's okay.
