It was nice to be there for a little while and see the people.
On Sunday night we had our family Valentine's Day party
because Sam was home from university and all of us were
pretty busy on the actual day. The kitchen was decorated
and I wrapped the last tissue paper peony onto the wreath,
and hung it up on the back door a second before
Christopher and Megan came through the front door.
The heart was loosely based on the lovely tissue paper
heart on the cover of Martha Stewart's February issue. I
went out with a friend to get the tissue paper a few weeks
ago, and started the heart then -- but this was a lot of work.
On Sunday I made a big push to get it done -- thinking otherwise
what was the point. I'm not really a crafter, but thought this
would be a snap. It wasn't. I think there are at least 80 flowers wired onto
The Valentine's Day Heart
a la Martha Stewart
So a big poufy extra Valentine's Day wish to you. May
all of your days be filled with people who love you so
much they'd make you a huge tissue paper heart.
Have a loving -your-life day.
