So here's my story; I went to Hobby Lobby today with a 40%-off coupon in hand. I was just going to buy a new calendar for the new year. This little conversation went on before I went in the store; The Sherry Angel (SA) told the Sherry Devil (SD), "You know the checking account is pretty anemic right now, and will be even more so when the credit card bill comes in with all the Christmas purchases on it. So only get the calendar." And the Sherry Devil said, "Fine with me!" But then we got inside the store! I grabbed a cart ~ Mistake #1. SD said, "Let's just look at the flowers, they're 50% off!" Okay, we'll look. Oh, we all three found so many bouquets that would look perfect on the table and we all agreed they would brighten up the winter days so much. But I would need a new vase to put them in. Let's look at some. Then SA comes to her senses, "Wait! We only came after a calendar!"
I won't tell the whole story but I will tell you this back-and-forthness went on in the fabric department and again in the Christmas clearance aisle. SD was so convincing that SA let me put a couple of things in the cart and ride them around awhile before convincing me I didn't really need them. SD said, "Oooh, but we could use some of the Christmas clearance stuff to make VALENTINE decorations with!" Now, I'm with SD on this one, afterall Valentine's Day is my favorite day of the year. But, SA had another idea, "Go home Sherry, pull out all the pink, red, and white craft items you already have, put them on the dining room table, then see what you can make from what you already have."
"Okay," ...me, whining...So I bought my new calendar then came home and worked all afternoon pulling out anything I thought I could use for Valentine crafties. And you know what? SA and SD disappeared! Poof! Just like that and left me here all by myself with this colorful mess.
I told you this story for a reason. I'm a sad little copycat with no idea what I can do with all this stuff. Please, dear blog friends, GIVE ME IDEAS! GIVE ME LINKS! I WISH YOU WERE HERE!
Seriously, I would love for you to leave me a comment with your favorite Valentine links or craft ideas.
