Valentines day Craft

Have you noticed how Valentines day has become so expensive these days..  can't help but feel its losing the true meaning. The gifts are becoming more expensive and the holiday in itself more corporate.

Yesterday I was at Walmart looking for a gift for my hubby from the kids.. I wanted a personal gift with meaning that didn't cost the earth.

And so we made this frame!! I really think its adorable

We hardly ever celebrate it, nowadays. But I totally agree with you. The kids would do crafty things at school to give to us but other than that, it's just an ordinary day. thanks for sharing this wonderful idea, Mel.
