Here on the Island if you are not shopping 1 month in advance you can forgot being able to find anything you need. We finished shopping for Christmas before Thanksgiving. Anyone who knows me knows I function best last minute and in a crunch - I think because I am forced to focus. I don't like to slowly work on anything. Projects get all of my attention until they are done.
Currently my project is a quilt (oh, and taking care of a baby and 3 kids and a husband - you know - laundry and stuff). So, I have not been thinking about Valentines day, until it was time to make them. I didn't want a project. So first, I avoided looking at any blogs for ideas (so glad I did). Second, we will just buy the goofy ones from the store - none to be seen. I couldn't even find a conversation heart. Third, come up with a quick - make the kids - happy idea.
