My Bloody Valentine

January 16th, 2009 by Cobwebs

Black HeartDot from Dabbled is running her second annual Black Heart Anti-Valentine’s Day Contest, looking for crafty representations of the darker side of the holiday. (You can see last year’s entries here.)

I’m sure that readers of my site have one or two ideas about Black Valentine’s Day* celebrations. Go over to Dabbled and share the love!

*On a side note, last year I was looking for an appropriate quote to use on a Valentine’s Day card for Shadow Jack. I did find one that I liked: “A meeting between two beings who complete one another, who are made for each other, borders already, in my opinion, on a miracle.” Isn’t that pretty? Isn’t that an appropriate Valentine quote? Know who said it? Adolf Hitler. Makes your head kind of come to a screeching halt, doesn’t it?

    So? Did you use the quote?

    Heh. No, I wound up using, “True love is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen.” (La Rochefoucauld)
