When I was three years old, my grandpa died. On Valentine's Day. So maybe it seems a bit crazy for me to be infatuated with everything pink and red (even though my mom's been telling me forever that they clash) and sugary. I love hearts and glitter and I love love. So although I think about my grandpa even more than usual on this day, (yeah, I was three, but I spent a LOT of time with him, so I remember quite a bit. Kind of unbelievable, especially because of my awful memory now) I like to surround myself with paper crafts and pretties and candy. It's no longer a time for sadness, even at the cemetery.
|Someday I'll have these.|
|These are usually a pretty big part of my V Day. But I really am partial to the larger ones.|
|I miss making these!|
|Love it! This is kind of like this tutorial (which I found via Apple Blue via The Dainty Squid, of course) <3|
|I'd love to start this project.|
|These are the only kind of flowers I want this year.|
I feel like this would be a good investment. Yeah it's ridiculous and no it won't stop me.
Of course I had to see what Tori had to say about the fashion aspect...I think I'll opt for some red leggings and a pink dress. Or perhaps the opposite. Either way, I'll be spending some money on a lovely new outfit.
Speaking of love...
|Love it! Add red tights...|
|This Etsy shop is AMAZING.|
|I'm not too old for Build-A-Bear. Just sayin'.|
|And this one's for Grandpa George <3|
|I loooooove red velvet cake! I found the best cupcakes at Walgreens.|
