Go Ahead and Give It Your All

Life is short. Make it amazing.  ~Hugh MacLeod (

Go Ahead and Give It Your All

Making a Valentine box is like making a life.
The amount of effort you put into it is
the amount of fun you get out of it. Don’t be short-
sighted. Use every bit of imagination to make
(your life or your Valentine box) amazing!

  1. I'm glad you all still make Valentine boxes. They were outlawed at our school because our principal short-sightedly decided that they somehow created bad feelings, so NO ONE should exchange Valentine's. Le sigh.

  2. I remember making Valentine boxes and/or big folders for Valentine's Day. I like the simile of the box to life.

  3. DID everyone make Valentine boxes, or just this one special soul?

    1. Almost everyone. And they were all kinds of awesome. This is the child who said, "Do we HAVE to make a Valentine box?" And I answered, "Of course you do! It's mandatory!" And I think she was glad she did.
