Well, here we are, the weekend before Valentines day and once again the Cractpots are busy crafting our hearts out and spreading the love.
I really wanted this year’s Valentines to read, “Haters gonna hate but I don’t carrot all” but was outvoted because apparently you don’t make friends with carrots.
My second suggestion inspired an 80’s retro vibe by handing out little army men and reminding everyone “Love is a battlefield”. Unfortunately the average 10 year old hasn’t been introduced to Pat Benatar’s awesomeness yet, so that one also got vetoed.

For those of you that are new to the party, enjoy last years Valentines day post while I keep busy trying to monitor the glue stick use. It’s all fun and games until something gets stuck to the dog.

I was convinced I could do it better. How hard could it be to construct my own flimsy pieces of cardboard?
