Valentines Fun!

This Valentine’s Day I did a few awesome things. I had a craft party with some friends where we decorated our own sugar cookies, watched some movies, and made Valentines crafts.

I really believe that home made gifts are always the best. Last year I filled up the bedroom with 100 red, pink, and white balloons for my partner.  It was magical to lay in bed, floating on a sea of balloons. We also stuffed them all into our shower (with sliding glass doors) and took turns laying underneath them all. If you haven’t done it, I totally recommend it.

This year, my partner mentioned wanting a stuffed animal fish. If you haven’t been lucky enough to meet my fish, he’s a magical goldfish that is definitely worthy of such admiration. So, I found some tie-dyed yellow flannel and I sketched out what I wanted the fish to look like.

I made the tail fin, side fins, and a dorsal fin separately from the rest of the body.

He loved him. I’m pretty happy with how he turned out as well.

Happy Valentines Day!
