i'll be the first to admit i often get a sad little case of the post-holiday blues. i miss the baking, the card-making, the shopping, wrapping, and decorating. so what do i do? look forward to the next holiday that involves one or more of these things: valentine's day. yeah, i know, it gets a bad rap, hallmark-holiday blah-di-blah. whatevs, i'm down to celebrate love with hearts and candy and all things pink and red. SO. i think fred flare's idea to have folks make handmade valentines which they'll sell on their site then donate all the profits is awesome. get the deets here, and start craftin'!
