What I probably won’t be making for Valentine’s Day.
In my delusions of homemaking grandeur, in which I am perfectly organized and endlessly motivated and nothing ever happens to derail me from my perfectly-laid plans, I imagine myself doing all kinds of things.
I have dreams of being a crafty woman. Everything I touch would turn beautiful.
Something about Valentine’s Day is pretty to me. I like the colors, I guess. Soft pinks, shades of red, all offset with some white… so pretty. Yeah, I know it’s a Hallmark holiday, but I like love. Love is good.
I’ve come across some Valentine’s Day projects in the past couple days that have me dreaming… that’s probably where it’ll end, though.
These are the ones that’ve caught my eye particularly:
Skill level: Easy
I think these heart doilies made out of napkins are adorable (via Martha Stewart, the one who inspires many of my delusions):
Skill level: Intermediate
If I were a scrapbooker, another one of my grand delusions, I’d be all over these 3D paper decorations.
Skill level: Are-you-freakin’-kidding-me
All of this is made of cake. All of it. Not much more to say about that, except not gonna happen. Major props to Bakerella on this one.
What are your favorite Valentine’s Day crafts? Nothing’s too remedial to share (trust me, I’m the world’s worst artist). But if you have mad skills you’ve been wanting to show the world, I promise I’ll still like you.
Happy crafting, whatever shape it takes this week!
