Second, thanks to all of you, who have been kind to me-I am so behind on commenting! I owe you big time~ I am trying to play catch-up, though it will be a challenge. Hubby called and is on his way home. Daughter doesn't have school on Friday and well, Monday is a Federal holiday~ I will challenge my inner owl and stay up late...ssssh, don't tell! ;D Are you a Morning Lark, Hummingbird or Night Owl? I'm more a Hummingbird~
Third, I wanted to share with you some ideas for Valentine's day:
This one is a bit nuts-no, really!
My daughter's boyfriend doesn't like chocolate, but LOVES Pistachio nuts! I bought a box and some nuts! I had to share the chocolates of course-fun!
Another idea, it is berry sweet:
YOU could decorate a pretty dish or plate with fresh or thawed Raspberries. YOU add Milk, Dark or White chocolate chips. How cool would it be to arrange them in a heart shape! These were fresh when I took the photo, this past summer. I do have some thawing out now to create one. Damn, someone is home-off to hide the food prop! ;D
L@@K over here!
I press flowers, but you could use a card or image from The Graphic's Fairy, for this idea!
Just do a search for Valentines and there will be many images to choose from!
I took some pressed Baby's Breath and wax paper and stitched a heart on my sewing machine. I am going to glue on some words, for a poem! But you could do the same with an image or glitter inside with the words, melted crayon-lots of options!
Here you can see my heart isn't perfect...but I like it this way-a reality check! I cut it out and glued on the words.
You could take some cupcake liners and make a Rose:
I started with a red liner and twisted it into a ball. Next roll another red one around it. adding tape to secure. Now add 3 pink liners and some pink tulle and then pale pink liners and white tulle. Funny, I prefer the back of the rose vs. the front?!
YOU just have to play! I don't think sentiment should be expensive, but it should be fun or memorable, or BOTH!
What do you like to get for Valentine's? What do you like to give?
I think I might make Cream Puffs, if the weather permits!
