It’ll be Valentine’s Day on Wednesday. That means, after Wednesday I won’t be decorating with hearts or anything Valentine related for a whole year, good riddance right (kinda, just a little)?
So, here’s one last memory about this made up holiday. Picture it, elementary school, circa late 1980’s.
My fourth grade teacher said the class was having a Valentine’s party and asked each student to sign up to bring a treat. Then she lectured the entire class about handing out Valentine cards. She said everyone that hands-out cards must be sure to give one to every single person in the classroom – regardless of the feelings or distaste one person has over another. Basically, don’t leave anyone out. Fair enough, right?
As I was at home prepping my cards and stuffing candy into the envelopes, I got to Casey’s Valentine card. Casey and I did not get along. I don’t remember why, but as a fourth grader I’m guessing it was a legit reason- like she borrowed a crayon without asking. Anyway, I sloppily addressed Casey’s card with her name on it and I “accidentely forgot” to put candy in her card. I sum it up to this – Casey got the card (I respected the teacher’s wishes and followed her directions) but she didn’t get the candy like the other students received. Talk about retaliating against Casey!! Then as Casey handed out her cards she somehow managed to misplace mine. Yeah, I’d say we were not destined to be friends – although we obviously had like minds.
Which now brings me to my last Valentine themed bullet journal layout for the year.
This orange tiger journal I use is by Dingbats Notebooks.
Aren’t the stitched stamps the cutest? The stitch design matches the heart stamps I’m also using in this layout.
With the same red marker I used to draw the boxes, I wrote the dates inside of the hearts. The markers I used are amazing. One side of the marker has a broad tip and the other side has a fine tip and both are the same color!
And because there was a bit of open space left on the layout, I decided to stamp some smaller stitched hearts from the same set mentioned above.
