I may have mentioned this before, but I am not crafty. I don’t like crafts; I don’t have the patience for them. So, if you see something here that I made (aside from food or children), you can rest assured that it was pretty easy. I learned to make Danish woven heart baskets a couple years ago. They are traditionally for Christmas, but since they’re hearts, I say they work for Valentine’s Day too. I made three little heart baskets, one for each of my kids. They can be filled with little treats like candy or stickers, or used like an envelope to hold a little note. You can find instructions and a template here.
I’ve been dying to make these Melt Away cookies, so this was a good excuse.
For breakfast this morning I made these strawberry muffins. I omitted the glaze mostly because I’m lazy. Apparently I have just enough energy to make homemade muffins, but not enough to really bring it home with some glaze.
My girl child is so excited about Valentine’s Day. I don’t have the heart to tell her it’s a made up over-commercialized holiday. Is there a Scrooge character for Valentine’s Day? Yeah, that’s me. I do like the candy, though. Happy Love Day, everybody!
