This year we are trying to more consciously use what we already have in our home. It is not as tragic as it sounds and actually has inspired a fair amount of creativity.
We are cooking meals out of things in our freezer or cupboards, watching movies that we haven’t seen in awhile, and most recently I was inspired to craft a few handmade Valentine’s cards.
When I read Martha Stewart last month, she had a project in there for Valentine’s cards and I thought it might be fun. Then I discovered 7 mini bright red envelopes as well as a stack of beautiful and festive papers from a previous year when I made cards.
I sent them to a few people and hopefully brightened a day or two as that’s what Valentine’s Day should be all about.
