Happy Valentine's Day, everyone. Thanks to a blizzard yesterday and today, I was spared a business trip to Washington D.C. Instead I got a snow day yesterday and got some crafting done (more purses and flowers to be posted here soon). In other exciting etsy news, I sold my first purse to the lovely woman with this blog. So that's three sales and counting. Woo-hoo! Thank you Vintage Chica!
No big plans for V-Day, just a nice quiet dinner with my husband. We don't exchange gifts on such holidays, but I always ask for a nice, mushy card. I did get this lovely Valentine (below) from this crafty woman. I love the crepe paper and the glitter! She and I exchanged Valentines, and I sent her the (what else?) felt stuffed heart above. I also made those for my sister and my mom (I don't exchange gifts with my lover but I do with my sister and mom! But of course, we exchange gifts for every little holiday.) I made myself a similar one but sewed buttons all over it, but I forgot to take a photo.
On Valentine's Day I am so grateful for the man who loves me every day, no matter how grouchy I am. I always remember how hard this day (and every day) was when I was alone. So today I remember all those men and women without great romantic relationships. May they find their soulmates soon!
P.S. Crafty note: Tutorial for heart-shaped yo-yos here. I've still never made rounds ones yet, so maybe I should wait for these advanced ones.
