Crap! Dd is supposed to bring all her valentines and a "mailbox" for hers on friday. We have a snow day today so yep its glitter glue time. I hate this bs. I have always hated v-day and right now I'm hating the fact that I have to put on a big fake happy smile for dd. lol I will not let her inherit my v-day cynicism. Smile in place and braced for glitter impact!

So do you ladies have any fantastical v-day crafty bs?

No, she's only 20 months, but I'm not looking forward to those days either!

We love it here!  Of course, we homeschool and the co-op my son goes to on Tuesdays has them make their mailboxes there, so...that could be part of it.  LOL  We do a lot of crafts and stuff for VDay, though.  I don't know ~ one more reason to bust out the glitter here.  LOL

 My daughter asked about Charlie Brown Valentines and I thought she meant the cards.  She was talking about the tv special, and now wants Charlie Brown Valentine cards to pass out.  So, she's totally SOL on that one.  We usually do the glitter and glue at home for  a card for their dad, but they're getting older so not so much anymore.

 I think V Day is fun. We bought the cards for my kids parties at school on Monday but they are going to make cards for daddy and grandparents this weekend. Why do you hate it so much? Its a fun thing to do with your kids enjoy it while it lasts.

I am going to be in for it because I am far from crafty!

I'm not crazy about the day either.  But only because I do not like forced affection.  My SO is taking his son over night to a rock concert out of state.  Perfect for me, I can sleep in my bed alone, not cook dinner and not talk to anyone!  LOL

It's just another day to me.  The boys have to take Valentines for their class on Friday.  I just bought a couple of packs of cards and they will make them out later.  I never have really understood Valentine's Day.  Why should there just be one day a year when you show someone that you love them?

That must be it. Its all just so fake. I think we should show our love all the time not just one day with big froofy pink hearts and flowers and all the nasty candy.  Really, if you want to show how much you love me buy me a pizza on one of my days where I don't want to get out of bed and bring it too me in bed. lol Dh knows not to even bother. We have the girls do pics and cards for their loved ones all year. 

Commercialism is killing our imaginations! lol

I completely agree!  I told my SO one of the most memorable days for me, when he looked the most sexiest and I felt completely loved by him, was when he went to the store and bought me tampons, not because I asked but because he knew I was due soon!  LOL
