Good morning or shall I say good evening?
I’m trying my hand at blogging for real this time. Yep, I had a blog a few years back and I just never updated it or really kept up with it. I had good intentions but I guess life got in the way. Besides, I was too busy looking at cute projects but not attempting to do them. So, this year, I’m hoping that adding this blog in with my vlogs will be a hit.
Let’s talk Valentine’s Day!
Back in my younger days, I loved Valentine’s Day and thought if a guy did not buy me anything, that was a sign. Well, as the years progressed and I grew up, I learned better. hahaha
I was recently on Facebook and I saw this video someone had shared and in the caption, it said “the surprise that every woman wants.” In the video, the guy has taken the time to really decorate the apartment by placing flower petals in different places around the apartment, candles in places and balloons everywhere and I mean everywhere.
When I watched the video, I thought, that is really nice but not for me. I love the gesture and the thought behind it, but the first thing I am thinking of, whose going to clean this mess. In my own marriage, Valentine’s Day is just another day for us. We don’t even celebrate to be honest. The last time we went out was two years ago and we went to a nice restaurant and then back to the hotel and went to sleep, we were so tired. We decided then, why put much thought into the day, we don’t need to waste money on chocolate. Well, wait maybe a cupcake, I’ll take a cupcake! hahahaha
I’m not saying it’s bad for someone to do nice things for their partner on the day, but you don’t need one day to show love, you can do that all the time. 🙂 So, to each its own!!
Which brings me to my project – yes I created a Valentine’s Day card for my husband. I also did a video of me coloring this image. I used the stamp set A Love Supreme, which you can find here on sale.
If you want to see the process of me coloring, be sure to head over to my channel and see the process. I know it’s long but coloring is long. Especially if you want to do it right. Leave a comment and I promise to answer back. In the video I show you what colors I am using and give a few tips that have helped me along the way. I am still learning but I love to learn with others. If you have any tips for me, let me know!
P.S. Since it’s Friday, be on the lookout of me releasing three men to my sticker line. You can find them on the Facebook Page, Instagram or in the shop! Hmm…I have not given this line a name yet but I’m still thinking it over. Have an awesome weekend! Oh and the sticker sale ends on Sunday!
Thanks for reading,
