Last weekend I was stuck inside, hiding from the snow storm, layering on pants and sweaters to stay warm, gazing out the window while eating oatmeal, and working on some homemade Valentines. I may not have had the time or motivation to make my Valentines if it wasn't for the storm. This year I made Valentine's for a few friends who do not live near me and decided to send them in the mail. I made personal and simple valentines with matching envelopes covered in heart patterns. I hope that my Valentine's made my far-away friends feel loved, and maybe made the mailman smile.
