String Art Valentines Day present

Hi Friends,

I’m pulling an all-nighter! I have a lot of work to get done and sometimes I can’t work until the house is quiet and everyone is asleep.

I’ve locked myself in our spare bedroom while working on a Valentine’s Day present for the boyfriend. I purchased a piece of thick siding from my local hardware store. The siding only came in one size so I brought a saw and successfully cut my board into a 2×3 rectangle/square shape. Next I have to hammer some nails in the shape of a heart then spend the rest of the night watching Downton Abbey and looping red thread throughout the nails. I think he’s going to love this present, especially since I made it big enough to hang on the wall.

I’m still trying to figure out what we are doing for the big day. I left it up to Tony to plan this years festivities but I don’t think going out to dinner is the smartest move. I have a few dietary restrictions and most restaurants will only be serving a pre-fixed menu. Those just don’t work for us since I don’t eat meat and usually opt for seafood or all veggies. Maybe we should stay in. We enjoy cooking together and have a nice rhythm in the kitchen. What do you guys think I should do?

What are you doing for Valentines day?

Do you pass out Valentine’s day cards at your job/school?

Peace & Love,

Mary
