Happy V-day!

Happy Day of Love. I never was a big fan of Valentine's, but the truth is, my bitterness derived from the fact that I didn't really know what LOVE was. That is until I met Albert and had his babies. :)
I make it a point to focus on family and handmade stuff. Like our V-day dinner tonight. I'm making a heart shaped pizza and some cupcakes. I made pink lemonade and bought special heart straws... very simple! I told Albert no presents, no flowers, no candy...our love is enough... LOL Gag. I know...
DO NOT get me wrong...each one of these boys/man drives me crazy in their own special way. These relationships are FAR from perfect. I'm not on here to boast that we are oh, so lovey dovey 100% of the time. lol BUT, I will say that these boys/man have taught me how to love and most importantly how to be loved.
I'm glad this day rolls around each year to remind me of JUST that, the love I share for them and their love for me. It's not about all that other stuff. Although, one year I got a beautiful diamond ring and that my friends was pretty swell.
I hope you have a fantastic-love filled Valentines with your love one! Happy V-day friends! Oh, and as for the picture below. THAT is Albert's smile! teheheh He was actually giving me his "I'm too sexy for my shirt" pose. bwahahah!
Oh, and we have something very special coming up. I am going to focus on babies and baby crafts starting this WED. With another baby coming along, I thought I would get crafty before she arrives. We are putting the finishing touches on a whole new baby collection of tags plus we are doing a whole collection on "the everyday scrapper". Can't wait to share.
xoxo, Veronica

Amen girl! I have never been a big fan of Valentine's Day, but I can honestly say that I am still not. Even though I know what love is now, it is because I know what love is. I don't need Feb 14 to feel loved. Or to express my love. Ya know?

Can't wait for your baby series. Not that I'll probably end up making anything cute that you're doing, but I love your ideas. :)

My non-crafty bff is having a baby girl, so I cannot wait to see what you have up your sleeve - as her "auntie" I'm the designated giver/maker of all things crafty for her and her room! Squeal!! (I have a boy, so LOVE getting to make girlie things!)
Sounds like you had a great v-day and focused on your fellas, perfect!

You are so right about the meaning of what Valentine's Day is all about...the picture is hilarious now that I know the meaning of Albert's "smile". lol Can't wait to see the new tags!
