This is My VDay
February 14th is fast approaching, and while it can mean a day of love, chocolates, flowers, and romance, i believe we deserve this on a regular basis - so why get suckered into the commercialism of it all for just one day? That, plus red really is not my colour. Having said that, i am busy with making some cute heart-shaped softies for the Month of Softies project. Now that i'm back to work full-time, i need any reason i can to be crafty.
February 14th means something different to me - the annual Vagina Monologues show, to promote awareness about vioelence against women as well as to celebrate being women and loving our bodies as they are. It's such a wonderful way to reach out about what happens to us as women, and a very good way to raise money for local abused women shelters and other services.
Countries from all over the world put on Vagina Monologue shows and they are so powerful - i cry, laugh, scream, and stand up tall each time i see a show. Maybe one year i'll be in one! (yikes). Check out this site to get more info - i'm sure there's a proud vagina near you!
