I’ve been to Karen Buttery’s workshops a couple of times. But, as a hobby demo, I like my discount & can find projects to stretch my capabilities in videos. SU is SO big!!

  30. I love to give my grandchildren some special candy in a little fun pretty box, handmade of course. And for my honey time spent with him and cook a special meal for him.

  35. My favorite thing to get on valentines day is flowers and chocolate thanks for the chance to win..

  37. My favorite gift used to be the homemade ones my children made when they were little. This year I would love some delicious gluten-free bread. Very nontraditional!

  38. I actually love flowers–cut or to-planted. Bringing nature into my home brightens my day, makes the house smell wonderful, and sets a nice contrast to the snow outside! A glass of wine with the flowers will never be unappreciated either!

  39. Well, bling is always a welcome gift. Other than that I am just thankful whenever someone takes the time to remember me, no matter what the gift may be. ( dark chocolate is really good)

  42. I don’t necessarily look forward to getting gifts, but getting visits or calls from my loved one’s especially those from my grandkids bring me such joy. It makes my heart swell. Isn’t that so appropriate being it all about hearts on Valentines Day?

  43. I think I would be happy with receiving or giving any of the items listed. But having to pick one, then a card with a personal note included would be the one. Can’t wait for COVID to be over to visit in person again!!!

  44. Yesterday, a dear friend of mine delivered her homemade red velvet cupcakes as a valentine’s surprise. Those are definitely my new favorite! Thank you for the fun drawing and your daily inspiration:).

  45. My favorite thing to get is a card. It lasts longer than flowers or chocolate, and it’s fun to go back and read what was written each year!

  52. My favorite gifts to give are the various little candy treat holders I make for my son and nieces and nephews (these year they were wrapped Hershey bars decorated with the Snailed It set). I would love to receive stamps from my family, but would be happy with a Snickers bar (and/or nachos!)

  53. I combine candy with a card. Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite celebrations! Thanks for the chance to win some blog candy.

Then home………………but what do I know, I’m an old maid!! : ) PS: I do not need this set.
