HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!
Bit of History – Valentine was a holy priest in Rome, who, with St. Marius and his family, assisted the martyrs in the persecution under Claudius II. He was apprehended, and sent by the emperor to the prefect of Rome, who, on finding all his promises to make him renounce his faith in effectual, commended him to be beaten with clubs, and afterwards, to be beheaded, which was executed on February 14, about the year 270. Archaeologists unearthed a Roman catacomb and an ancient church dedicated to Saint Valentine. In 496 AD Pope Gelasius marked February 14th as a celebration in honor of his martyrdom.
Bit of Fun – Here is our Valentine projects reveal. The Valentine boxes & tags were created using a combination of original art (collage sheets), vintage sheet music, stamps, post cards, large shipping tags, ribbons & buttons. Still adding some embellishments to our “Valentags!”
