Valentine’s day is coming!

art by Emily Dimov-Gottshall

Have you made your plans yet? Are you doing a traditional valentine’s celebration or a galentine’s day? And if you don’t celebrate, why not make someone else’s day or if you have a pet or plant, special by doing random acts of kindnes? This makes others happy at very little expense on your part and what you get back, is knowing you made that little act of kindness a reality for someone. A totally win/win experience.

Additionally, if you want to do some local fun ArtsAltoona is hosting a Valentine’s event called “Hart Shop” at the Station Medical Center. It’s today from 11-2pm. But don’t worry if you can’t make it, they are having a happy hour time from 5 to 7:30 today as well! So, give it a go and see if you find anything special for a loved one or even just your self.

Last but not least, I wanted to mention that the Art in Common is having a show at the Altoona Public library. Lots of wonderful local artists are displaying. What a great way to spend the day at the Hart shop and then, heading over to see some local art at the library. I have to mention I’m displaying my art as well. 🙂 If you contact the library, you can purchase a piece of art and some of that goes to the library as well!

The art used for this article is by me. You can view it in person at the Altoona Library until Feb 28th. I also sell my work at red bubble. Enjoy!
