Today, I played…and I felt like I was right back in second grade. The first time I remember making Valentines, and the all important construction paper “mailbox” that hung off the front of my school desk, I was in Mrs. Bacon’s class. Yes, that was her real name Do you remember making Valentines when you were in school?
If I close my eyes I can actuallly recall the smell of paste and remember my excitement of the thought of Valentines. I didn’t even know what a Valentine was but I knew that I was going to make cards for everyone in my class. I was astonished when my mailbox was stuffed with lovely cards from everyone in my class. Such a fun and innocent time.
Today, I got to bring back a bit of that joy into my life. I dug into my craft bins and pulled together an assortment of items that I thought were Valentine friendly.
I think handmade cards are cute and a little extra special for a loved one. Plus, with the cost of greeting cards SO high, you can make your own cards for a fraction of the cost. Thanks for letting me share my play-day with you!
