Valentine's Day

It's time again for that overly commercial holiday of roses and ugly teddy bears that no one would buy on any other day. If you're wondering what to do this Valentine's Day for someone special, I would suggest something personal, with meaning, and heartfelt. Actually, I probably suggested that last year too. One good tactic is to do a Google search for personalized gifts. You'll get a bunch of websites with cool, but way too expensive items, like a personalized picture frame, a love message in a bottle, a decorated mug, or things like this prescription for love. Now, if you don't have time to make something yourself, one of these personal ideas can be a pretty cool thing. But if you do have time, why not go to a craft store (I prefer Michael's), buy the necessary supplies, and make it yourself. I mean, how hard can it be to get an empty pill bottle, insert your sweetie's favorite candy, and print up and type our your own label? For Jbear, I decorated a book/box with a collage of pictures of us, and then I decorated the inside with some stickers, foam, ribbon, and paper cut-outs. It's not as fancy as something I could have bought, and there's some glue stains on the inside, but I know he'll like it because of all the work I put into it. Most of all, stop stressing. Your effort will be appreciated no matter what you do!! Here's some pics of what I did for my boyfriend: On the same note, Valentine's Day cards/letters are more things you can always make. Check out two of the cards I made: \
