    I know just what you mean Julie. I LOVE all the pink girly pretty frilly stuff! and chocolate! But I don't need any of it. I am doing a valentines box and cards for a burlington gallery. Just like in grade school. Anyone else use to make elaborate boxes for all to put valentines in?????

    Valentines boxes... yessss, i remember those. I preferred to cover mine with tin foil & red hearts (my mom generally added a buncha frilly pink ribbons & girly stuff that i hated afterwards lol). I'm still a red over pink kinda gal, but Valentines Day is one of the few times i can appreciate the girly pink frills. It was soooo embarrassing dragging those frilly pink monsters to school!!

    I love pink. always! didn't use to but I do now. Julie, boxes were SO fun. In grade school everyone made a valentines mailbox. any shape, any decoration you want. so take a box, cover it in paint/paper/fabric/ candy etc. Can shape to be a cat head, a rocket ship, a cupcake, anything you want! paint it, stickers, glue gun candy hearts, glitter, tinfoil. Cut a hole so valentines fit inside.

    So we'd bring in our box on the particular day. put the box on your desk. then everyone walks around putting valentines they wrote to you, inside your box. so you get as many valentines as you make. it was delicious fun! there is a gallery doing that here. I couldn't be more excited.

    Since everyone playing is in the US, if you need more time, that is just fine and dandy. Let's mail by the 6th. That should get everyone's valentines there in time. Sound ok?

    Woo just finished my valentine card - having fun here!
    Oh and extra tip - don't buy any valentine candy until you plan to mail,
    unless you just keep it in your car, hidden from temptation.
    I just know these things.
