The Next Holiday

Hello everyone!  We’ve passed through the holiday season, and I hope everyone’s Christmas and New Years was enjoyable as mine was.  I spent some of my final days there rushing to finish crocheted Christmas presents, making Christmas cookies, and cooking lots of entrees for various parties.  And now we finally have a lull between those holidays and the next one.  This gives us some time to make some cute and fun crafty decorations for it. 


Valentine’s Day

Decorating for any holiday can be fun.   I particularly like that exercising my creativity is a good way to help strengthen my cognitive capacity too.  I’ve collected a few of my favorite DIY Valentine’s Day craft project decorating ideas here for you all to use for your Valentine’s Day decorating this year.
