I absolutely adore holidays. ADORE. That being said, this Sunday is a double-whammy of Valentine’s Day and the Chinese New Year. Thank goodness the colors coordinate!
I had planned to go all out on gifts for Friday, but I’ve decided against it. Instead, I’m just making little no-frills things. Nothing’s been put together, but I have red satin cord and pieces of pink fabric ready.
Using some online tutorials, I figured out how to make the lucky and button knots. I was going to buy oranges also (for the Chinese New Year) but they’re too darn expensive because of the frost in Florida. Oh well, I’ll just have to do without.
Now I just have to wait for my glass bottles to finish drying and I can fill ’em with M&Ms. Yep, that’s my grand plan: M&Ms. All my friends are college students – I doubt they’d mind.
Ah, and I almost forgot again! Linking up to kootoyoo for creative spaces!
