I have started on doing some crafts for Valentines Day. I have never really been a huge fan of the holiday probably because I have only had one Valentine, which I enjoyed and liked, which was last year when Dave and I were dating. The other memories I have are awkward dates with guys and random flowers in homeroom class from people I had no idea who where. Then every year I am the mean heart breaker with the barrier of bad news that no just because you took me out or sent me a flower doesn't mean I like you, and I don't know you so no I am not going to date you. I know harsh. But in all honesty I was doing them a favor because if one of my older brothers were to found them it would have been A LOT worse then a broken heart.
Any ways, Valentines Day is full of colors red and pink. Which are great don't get my wrong. I like the colors they go together . . . etc. But with a "happy" holiday like everyone says it is, shouldn't their be some sunshine? In my life if you brought me a rose it would be nice and they are very beautiful but bring me a Sunflower (or a Daisy) I am happiest girl in the world! Big Bright Beautiful Fun and Playful! That is what yellow does for me. So I have been getting ready my card and gift for Dave I am trying some new things out. Let me know if you like my idea with Valentine's Day needs some Yellow in it!
Here is the start of the card I am making for Dave, I will post more picture and more crafts I am doing latter but here is my start. :)
I made the flowers with felt and sewed them together with black thread. Then I attached them to the paper with the black thread and strung the bead on.
For one my gifts (not really in the yellow theme, sorry) I am trying to scrapbook our honeymoon which was in Mexico! I have been trying to think of a way to scrapbook the money we got their in a unique way. So I decided to use them as a page number. So every page has a coin and then I am still working on what to do with the bills. Check it out let me know what you think.
And also Dave has been "banned" from the blog until Valentines Days. ; )
