Day 3 of 14 Days of Valentines - Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year...the Year of the Rabbit. People born in the Year of the Rabbit (1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011) are articulate, talented, and ambitious. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky, but they have a tendency to get too sentimental and can seem superficial.

I personally am a Monkey. People born in the Year of the Monkey are clever, skillful, and flexible. Monkey people have a deep desire for knowledge and usually have excellent memories. Monkey people are strong - willed but their anger cools quickly.

The Chinese New Year inspired today's Valentine project. Fill the box with fortune cookies and a gift card to their favorite Chinese restaurant.

Enjoy your Date Night!

  1. Just adorable!! I am a boar according to the Chinese new year. Such a cute idea. Where are the cute chocolates (?) or somethings that I can see on the picture from Dustin's site that I can't see on yours? I just love your work and really enjoy visiting your blog each day!

  2. Thanks for coming to visit every day. :)

    An ox...Ox people are patient, born leaders, and inspire confidence in others. Although they speak little, when they do they are quite eloquent. People born in the Year of the Ox can be remarkably stubborn; they hate to fail or be opposed. So does that fit you?

    Man, those sneaky chocolates! I can't figure out why they are showing on Dustin's. I have them scheduled on Day 10. Hmmm...I might have to release them early.
