Valentine’s Day – Delighted or Dreaded?

Close to my Heart Valentine This is one of those holidays that you either love or hate, can take it or leave it, you get the idea. Did you know that in 2014 people spent 37  BILLION on Valentine’s Day!  That my friend is a lot of  chocolate!.  As much as I love to see all the jewelry ads, and  ooh and awww, I have also seen a trend of “I Hate Valentine’s Day” items.  Depending on where you are in your life, and how comfortable you feel there, would you embrace this turn on Valentine’s Day?  I know the arguments “no one is going to tell me when to express love” or “It is a made-up holiday created by the card companies” no matter the negative reason, I couldn’t so so far as to wear “I Hate Valentine’s Day”  across my chest.  I would look like a bitter old woman who didn’t have love when in fact I am very happily married and am spoiled rotten!  Ask him, he will tell you.

On the other hand, I love how creative people can be on Valentine’s Day. Take a look at the card on the left. I love how the creator (not me) used paper flowers tipped with Ruby Ink, or the spray effect caused by using the Spray Pen. And who doesn’t like some bling on Valentine’s Day?   I will be posting a series of Valentine Day Cards today on Facebook. While I would love to take credit for them, I didn’t make them, only compiled them for your enjoyment. If you have not yet “Liked” my Facebook page – PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DO IT NOW.
