Take back Valentine's Day

February 6, 2015

 

I used to hate Valentine's Day- too many expectations, too much sadness, too much money, too much period.  It really became a Hallmark holiday for me which equals a reason for people to buy stuff so they don't disappoint others.  

 

I now use Hallmark holidays like Valentine's Day to remind myself about love and generosity and kindness.  To do something just because, something unexpected- for someone you may not even know.  I am a fibre artist.  For me that means  I hand dye fabric and fibre and knit and felt and spin and obsess about all things fibre.  I made some felt hearts- added them to some indigo dyed cotton.  It got a bit out of control, I think there are over 100 now.  I stiched paper on the back for a note.  Now they are hanging out in places where you can find Bad Duck Caramel.  It's a just because from me to you.  

 

 

Do many things or one thing.  If you love Valentine's awesome!  Go all out.  If you hate Valentine's  I  encourage you to take it back!
