Valentine's Review: What Did you Create to Express Your Love?
I hope you had a lovely and love-filled Valentine's Day. Now it's time to reflect and share. What did you create? How did you celebrate? What will be remembered by you and your loved ones about Valentine's Day 2013?
My Valentine's Day Creations
Lovin’ from the Oven: I baked a New York-style cheesecake for a Valentine birthday boy.
Crafty Objects of Love: I'm making Valentine collage art hearts for two dear friends with February birthdays. One's done and the other is almost ready.
These cute heart ornaments came out of a half hour make-and-take video yesterday taught by Jenn Mason, editor of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine.
Thank you, Jenn!
CPS recorded the class and promised to make the video available soon. I'll be sure to let you know.
Each one is unique because we all started with different fabrics, patterned papers, etc. I added some finishing touches and came up with some technique tips which I'll share as well.
A Valentine's Gift that Kept Giving: I bought a bunch of roses at the supermarket Tuesday. I came home with them behind my back and, with a flourish as I presented them, told my husband I had something for him … to give to me for Valentine's!
We shared a laugh, feelings of affection, and the other benefits that sometimes accrue to people in love. My dear husband is not much of a gift giver anymore. But as they say, love will find a way ;-)
