    homemade sparkly valentines

    Love is:

    -Saying yes to buying glitter glue and the most shimmering paper in the craft store

    -Patiently cutting hearts by hand

    making homemade valentines

    -Making a list of people you love who need a Valentine

    -Totaling the list to 24 and then remembering more people you love

    -Spending three days of craft supplies strewn all over the dining room table

    -Hand applying stickers, glitter glue, and everything ‘just so’

    mailing homemade valentines

    -Writing a personal message on each card

    -Hand addressing the envelopes

    -Selecting a stamp to match the recipient’s personality and placing it perfectly in the corner

    -Playing cupid to deliver cards on foot and by car

    -Taking time, lots of time, to do Valentine’s the slow, sparkling, handmade way

     

    How are you expressing your love today?

    I live to eat and eat to live, planning every meal to include as much local and seasonal abundance as possible. I often wear purple and never refuse a drink.

      What a sweet activity! I think she (and you) will remember things like this, and I hope the recipients really felt the love!
