Valentine’s Day Doesn’t Have to Suck

ATTENTION CLOSE FRIENDS OF MINE, PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS POST. OR IF YOU DO, PROCEED WITH CAUTION. In case you’re living under a rock, Valentine’s Day is approaching, which means the aisles at Target are full of pink, red, and white, and candy lines almost every shelf. I’m not one to love Valentine’s Day. In fact, I’d probably say that it’s my least favorite holiday of the year. Maybe it’s because I’ve been single for 18 out of my 19 Valentine’s Days, but I still dread it every year. This year, though, I’m trying something a little different. Instead of focusing all of my energy on how I’m going to be single for life and will probably be that crazy cat lady, I’m celebrating all of the positive relationships I have with friends and family.

Don't buy in to the consumerism of Valentine's Day. Show your loved ones how much you care by creating your very own handmade cards! Find out how to make all the cards pictured above in today's post!

Over the past eight months, I’ve formed friendships with people that are going to last a lifetime, and I want to celebrate that. I’ve also been really into all the cheesy Valentine’s quotes this year, so that’s played a large role in why I decided to not-so-much hate on Valentine’s Day this year. So what’s a better way than incorporating my love for hand lettering with my love for cheesy love quotes than to make a ton of cheesy, hand-made Valentine’s Day cards??
