In my family, we were always taught the importance of celebrating "the day", like someone's actual birthday or an event. Even though there may be a birthday party planned for you that following weekend, a special recognition, gift or anything on "the day" is a must! So why should Valentine's Day be much different? Yes, it is a commercial holiday and sets people up to feel bad about themselves (if you so choose to fall into that). And yes, it is silly to just focus on a day for love. However, it's not going anywhere, so as far as I am concerned, "the day" should be recognized one way or another. Love doesn't have to be about a romantic relationship but any relationship where love is shared. Mothers. Fathers. Sisters. Brothers. Girlfriends. Boyfriends. In light of Valentine's Day and the love I have for all of you for your support on my blog and design quest, here are some Valentine's Day inspired designs that I hope bring a little more love into your heart!
