making valentines

My coworker came up with a great idea: making valentines at work! So we both pulled together some of our crafting supplies, booked one of the conference rooms last Wednesday, and let our coworkers drop in anytime during a three-hour period to make valentines. It was such a great success! We work with some really creative folks, and it was fun to see what people came up with.

I divided up some card bases, envelopes, stickers, glue, ribbon, and decorative scissors amongst three tables and set aside some rubber stamps, ink pads, paper scraps, and foam self-adhesive conversation hearts (found those at Michael’s) for people to use.



Here are some of my coworkers busy making their valentines …


And here are some of the beautiful cards that people made (click the photo to enlarge it so you can see the pretty details) …

I found one on my desk later that afternoon, pictured here next to Pistachio …

Speaking of my desk, there’s been a new addition (see the cute striped fella) … Gus Gus. He’s made friends with Spike.

It’s funny because I feel like we’re so much more festive around this holiday than we were back during Christmastime. I guess there’s a lot of love to be shared right now, which is a good thing. 🙂
