i have been unforgivably absent from the blog lately.
i DID have some sort of plague which made getting out of bed difficult, but still. no excuse.
i decided a mini project was just the thing to to properly usher myself back into the blogging world. hence: mini heart lollipops with handmade tags for co-workers for valentine’s day.
first, i made all the handwritten tags. i then glued them onto various kinds of pretty scrap booking paper to make them festive. i punched a hole into each tag with a fork.
yes. a fork. THIS fork specifically:
i strung a short length of hemp string through each hole, using the string to tie the tag onto the lollipop stem. voila! after approximately 45 minutes, i had 25 cheerful little valentine’s day greetings to pass out at work.
happy valentine’s day!
fun fact: physicians of the 1800s commonly advised their patients to eat chocolate to calm their pining for lost love.
fun fact #2: the italian city of verona, where shakespeare’s lovers romeo and juliet lived, receives about 1,000 letters addressed to juliet every valentine’s day.
