Valentine Munchkins are here! xoxoxox
I was extremely anxious to get started on Valentine SnipPets, so i started sculpting a few right before Christmas and got them painted last week. I LOVE Valentine's Day!!! I always have....long before boyfriends and romantic love entered my life. Even as a child, I just adored everything about Valentine's Day. Creating handmade Valentines from snips of paper, paint, doilies and glitter was a treasured activity (an early indication of my mixed media obsession :)!). And remember those mailboxes made from shoeboxes that you would put together for school Valentine exchanges??? So much fun! And since I have a major sweet tooth, the candy/chocolate part of the holiday makes it even more appealing. Every year, my dad would come home from work with 2 big red heart boxes of chocolates under his arm...a red one for my mom and a pink one for me! My mom would make us a special Valentine dinner and always had some special gift beautifully wrapped for me on my placemat. She knew how important the day was to me. I think it is a wonderful time to celebrate all kinds of love....family, friendships, and of course, the love of our beloved furry companions :).
So, here are some of my munchkin Valentines. These are listed in my Etsy shop and the rest will be available during this month's Pfatt and STJ updates! Also, SnipPet bookmarks are back in my shop! They are $4.00 each with FREE shipping and 100% of the profits will go straight to spaying/neutering kitties in Lexington! These bookmarks are a perfect little Valentine gift and a great way to spread the furry love :).
