Not really a Valentines person but I made a few non-traditional cards - just for the fun of it. Here they are.
Got to thinking about how commercialised holidays have become. Valentines, Easter, Birthdays, Christmas - they are all excuses to spend too much money and on what? Stuff people don't need and won't use. This is the year that I break away from the hype and the pressure to spend spend spend. I'm only giving gifts to people because I want to not because I feel obliged. I am also going to make gifts where I can - ot only does it save money - it is fun. There is a real feeling of satisfaction in giving a gift that comes from the heart. The only problem is - I'll have to convince a 15 and 10 year old that homemade is 'cool'! Not sure how I'll do that.
Thought for the day:
