Valentine’s Day redux

On Valentine’s Day, we’re going to do something different.

No gifts. No flowers. No dining out.

This year, we might still wear something reddish and drink a sparkler, but we’re staying home. Could sound rather humdrum—but I’m excited because this will be a creative and meaningful Valentine’s Day.

We’ll start by making a tasty vegetarian lasagna (from my own spontaneous “recipe”) and a chopped salad with veggies fresh from the farmers’ market. Then after dinner, we’ll clear off the table and <drum roll> … make our own Valentine’s Day cards with our own personal messages right on the spot!

I’m thinking about it now because I need to capture “art supplies” from our cupboards, recycling bin, and elsewhere:

  • cardboard cereal boxes
  • address label stickers
  • ribbons from recently opened packages
  • greenery from the garden
  • dried beans
  • wrapping paper
  • raffia
  • magazines
  • catalogs
  • highlighters
  • colored pencils
  • glue

What fun!

If you can think of anything else that might be already in the house to use as art supplies, please let me know.

Although it is early, I wish you all a very happy Valentine’s Day 2013.
