Will You Be My Valentine?

This weekend, I, along with my roommates, Emily and Ingrid had a little gathering to make valentines! We pooled our craft resources and transformed the dining room into Valentine's Central! The fruits of our labor revealed some finely-made papers to give to our loved ones. The process of creating something felt so therapeutic after hours upon hours of computer typing. Crafting and creativity are soothing elixirs for one's soul. My process became more whimsical than purposeful - many of my Valentines are 3D and difficult to mail but they were sure fun to make!
