Make It Monday: Spread the LOVE

“Whatever is worth doing at all, is worth doing well.”
– Earl of Chesterfield

I know this time of year is really great for some and not so great for others. There are clubs around Charlotte that are having anti-Valentine’s day parties and are celebrating broken relationships. Valentine’s Day, for me, did not originate from a relationship with a boyfriend and has never really been “about” my dating relationship…it originated with my parents. We used to get little valentines from my mom and dad…because they loved us and wanted to take a moment to show us their love a little differently via a cute, sometimes corny, card and some candy.

Whether or not it’s a “Hallmark” holiday conspiracy by the “evil” greeting card companies of the world, I tend to be of the mindset that…What the heck?  Everyone could use some silly lovin’ one day out of the year and we could all spare some time and effort to give that silly lovin’ to the folks around us or to folks we don’t even know.

If you want love…you’ve got to give love (there’s a reason that’s so catchy…) So if you find yourself without a typical “sweetheart” this Valentine’s, please stop yourself from the cynical pity party that is encouraged and take that energy and make a Valentine craft for someone you love or even better, someone you DON’T love…

Here are some fun ideas and crafts to get you inspired:

Here’s to a happy, crafty Monday…try not to take yourself so seriously today and smile, because you are loved:)
