I have THREE things to share with you this lovely Valentine's Day!

2. There are some kind of awesome Valentine appropriate DIY's from last year for you to enjoy! Find The Heart Sweater and the Heart Elbow Patch DIY and get your stitching on.
3. It is V-day! The day where One Billion (are) Rising!
Taken from their website:
ONE IN THREE WOMEN ON THE PLANET WILL BE RAPED OR BEATEN IN HER LIFETIME.*
ONE BILLION WOMEN VIOLATED IS AN ATROCITY
ONE BILLION WOMEN DANCING IS A REVOLUTION
On V-Day’s 15th Anniversary, 14
February 2013, we are inviting ONE BILLION women and those who love them
to WALK OUT, DANCE, RISE UP, and DEMAND an end to this violence. ONE
BILLION RISING will move the earth, activating women and men across
every country. V-Day wants the world to see our collective strength, our
numbers, our solidarity across borders.
What does ONE BILLION look like? On 14 February 2013, it will look like a REVOLUTION.
ONE BILLION RISING IS:
A global strike
An invitation to dance
A call to men and women to refuse to participate in the status quo until rape and rape culture ends
An act of solidarity, demonstrating to women the commonality of their struggles and their power in numbers
A refusal to accept violence against women and girls as a given
A new time and a new way of being
So head on over to onebillionrising.org to watch live videos throughout the day and see ONE BILLION PEOPLE DANCING! Already videos from India, Indonesia, Taiwan, Sudan, the Congo, New Zealand, Australia... it is pretty damn AWESOME! And put your stitching down for little to go get your dance on.
