I enjoy Valentine’s Day with our family because it falls between two birthdays and we’ve come to a general agreement that no big deal will be made from it. Still, we participate in the school exchanges and sugar coma’s. My husband finds a nice card that has become something to look forward to.
I’m playing around with making little crochet hearts. I wanted them for Valentine’s Day card embellishments, so they each only take a few minutes to crochet. I also made Valentine goodie bags this year and I’ll probably sew a few of the babies on them. Have fun with this quick and simple project!
