It's Valentine's Day. I can't believe it arrived so quickly.
We have been so busy around here that we haven't made any really great Valentine's crafts. What a shame.
We did buy heart stickers to make cards and then made heart lollipop flowers from pink and red construction paper hearts, heart lollipops and the stickers. We also made candy favor boxes from clear hearts and stickers. It was fun but not very inspiring.
This year, I won't be able to spend time with my husband on Valentine's Day because he will be working so we will probably pick another night to have a "date." The positive thing is that we will probably get a better table at a restaurant.
I used to ask him not to buy me candy (flowers were OK, of course) but I would present him with his favorite box of chocolate truffles. That made him very happy until they changed the truffle recipe, adding fruit flavors, which he hates. Now I am always looking for truffles with no fruit flavors -- not always easy to find. Of course you can make some very good truffle treats but they are a bit time consuming because you have to dip each one in chocolate. Great if you have time. Here is a link for that.
Happy Valentine's Day and I hope your day is wonderful.
