Can I make a confession?
Valentine's Day is a rip off. Ouch. There, I said it, do you hate me?
What's wrong with me. Every girl loves receiving chocolates and flowers and extravagant dinners for Valentine's Day, right?
I think it's a waste of money. If flower's are going to be bought, buy me some bulbs I can plant in the garden. Chocolate is great, but I don't like the heart shaped box thingies that you have to read the diagram to figure out what flavor you're about to bite into. Besides, I'm very picky about my chocolate (and ice cream) so it's best to stick with what I like.
Oh, the brutality. I did try to get into the Valentine's Day mind set, but I just couldn't do it. I had a tablescape in mind, and I'm just not going to do it. I had some crafts I wanted to make, but I just didn't want to.
The only thing that I have actually crafted and not necessarily for Valentine's Day, maybe more for Spring. Crepe Paper Peonies.
I was perusing through my Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Crafts and stumbled across Crepe Paper Flowers, page 248. I did the peony in a fuchsia crepe paper and found it to be a little addictive and super easy to make.
