I tend to make a big deal of Valentine’s Day but I like to change it to God is Love Day! I have several verses that I have printed out and laminated and I hang them up during the month of February.
This year, as I was searching for something special to make for everyone I came across a project that I desperately wanted to make for each person in my family. However, it was a sewing project and I can’t even sew on a button straight! I really wanted to make this project and I couldn’t figure out a way to make it without sewing. After chatting with Phil about it we decided to buy a very inexpensive sewing machine. I watched the short video that came with the machine and then I set to work.
Can you believe I did it? AND, I enjoyed every minute of it!!! Have I discovered a hidden talent? Well, I don’t know about that! If you look closely at what I made you can see many mistakes but it was fun nonetheless. I made chair back envelopes! I think they turned out really cute! At night Phil or I would put a love note and a treat in their envelope for them to discover in the morning. It was so much fun!
My mom made her world famous fried chicken to go along with our rosemary potatoes and salad. Then Belle and I made bright pink rice krispy treats to top off the evening.
I wonder what I will come up with next year???
