Back in American elementary school, I remember choosing Valentines for classmates was a horrifying affair. Should I go with my heart’s instinct to get My Little Ponies, or try to be cool and get Barbie? It was just so difficult. Looking back on those times, I wish I would have had the heart to make my own. Now that I live in Japan, where they celebrate V-day, but don’t give cards, I need something to state my heart’s affairs! So I’ve made my own with supplies at school.
