Handmade Valentines

For some years now, Miss Abigail and I have made valentines to give to our friends. This is one of our favorite "mother-daughter" activities. I have collected lots and lots of snips and scraps and tools and supplies. I keep them from year to year in a special box and try to replenish our stock when things go on sale after the holiday. We always have such a lot of fun. We eat chocolate and practice card making techniques. I think it is such a shame that all our holidays, including Valentines Day, have become so commercialized. I just hate feeling pressured by holiday duty, particularly if it involves buying something expensive enough to reflect my love. So, making a simple, handmade card is my way of resisting the trend. I wish I could hand you a valentine. Just remember that our very best wishes wing their way...Happy Valentines Day!


  1. Those are very beautiful and a great idea. I love that you are enjoying your time with your daughter.

  2. Yes Kathleen, You seem to be having great fun with your daughter!Sounds like you two are more like friends! I hope my son will also enjoy crafting with me when he grows up!
    A Very Happy Valentine's day to you both!

  3. I think handmade Valentine's Day cards are the best :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  4. Beautiful Valentines! They turned out wonderfully. I love to check out your blog and see what crafty things you are up to. Thanks for the pictures and inspirations!
