I think that Valentine's Day is utter rubbish. Mostly, that comes from over 10 years working in a card and gift shop and just dreading the madness that Valentine's Day brought with it. The confused desperation oozing from the (mostly) male customers as they trawled for last-minute gifts, the sore feet and permanent smile of retail. Not for me.
That being said, I am continually drawn towards imagery relating to it. I love our little Pinterest group board dedicated to this event, particularly enjoying how celebrations are seen through other peoples' eyes. Fascinating!
And who doesn't love hearts and chocolates and cuddles and lovely little notes anyway. I just prefer them to be more spontaneous...

Oh, and I almost forgot about the little Valentine's Heart Tutorial I did waaa-aaay back. Take a look at it over here.
For those of you who celebrate Valentine's Day with reckless abandon - Good for you! Have a wonderful time doing whatever it is you like to do.
For those of you who don't, have a lovely day anyway. As Poppet is a bit excited about the day, we will start it with pancakes and strawberries, but otherwise it will be a normal day. I am, instead, looking forward to the lovely long weekend ahead of us during which we're going to hang out with some pals, drink some wine and just kick back for a while. Poppet has four days off to take it easy.
