Valentine’s Day- An early post

So, I haven’t typically ever cared for Valentine’s Day. But this year might be the first year that it hurts, so instead of focusing on my pain, I wanted to take it and show others I love them, and that they are special to me. Four particular ladies- three of whom I’ve been pen-pals with since 2004, and 2005. The fourth I met through one of them when I went to Alaska to spend time with her. Two have boyfriends (the two in Alaska), but they’re my best friends. And the other two are single, and I know sometimes Valentine’s Day can be a stark reminder to your singleness.

So. I made each lady a card out of scrapbook paper, placed a heart doily on the inside, and used washitape to edge part of it. Nothing super crafty, I’m not really that great at crafty stuff. And I was actually going to save this post for V-day, but decided I’d go ahead and share it today.

Besides the homemade card, I also got a small box of chocolate (which I hope does okay in the mail; a friend sent me a box of chocolate over Christmas and it was fine, so I’m sure it’ll be okay) and a small stuffed animal. Nothing big. Just a “I’m thinking about you, and I love you” type of thing. And since they know nothing of it, it’ll be a nice surprise.

I will be mailing the packages on the 5th, most likely. Probably be a few days early, but I don’t mind.

Anyway, here’s a picture of the cards.
