We all know that Valentine’s Day is a hallmark holiday. I recently went to Michael’s craft store to pick up some supplies and was completely inundated with Valentine’s Day paraphernalia. Everywhere I went I could see red and pink construction paper, cupid stamp sets, heart-shaped sparkle bags, and do-it-yourself kids card kits. But the takeover isn’t limited to Michael’s: Valentine’s Day is everywhere. All you have to do is step out the front door. Every convenience store, every corner store is stocked to the brim with stuffed bears holding plush hearts, heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, and cards with little kids kissing (bleck!). And, let’s be honest, it’s sickening.

Happy card making! Until next time … Porcupette out!
