My little sister and I exchange a hand crafted valentine each year. I posted about my 'offering' this year here. You can tell from these photos of some of her 'offerings' that I got the better deal. She really overdid it with this old heart shaped candy box that she mosaiced with pearls and other found beads and earrings. I keep it out all year with a glass pie plate upside down over it. I don't think I ever want to clean it and the pie plate isn't elegant but I haven't found anything better.
