Time for valentines!

 

As January comes to an end and the holiday decorations are packed up, the clinic can feel cold and sterile.  The staff came to an agreement and announced ” time for Valentines!”.  Off came the red and green snowflake skirts on the paper ballerinas And on went the red and pink heart shaped skirts.  Multicolor confetti hearts sandwiched between clear contact paper hang from the nurses station windows. And curled paper heart mobiles are decorating the lab door.  For the curled hearts first cut paper into 1 or 2 inch long strips.  Fold each strip in half crossways.  Take a pencil, or paintbrush handle, and curl each strip down towards the inside of the fold.  Poke a hole in the middle of the fold, string a thread or ribbon through the hole, and place in between curls of heart.  Stick together with a clue dot.  Hang three to four along thread or ribbon with beads placed under each heart.  string a few beads on bottom edge of ribbon for weight. Although Valentines Day is not for three more weeks, it is important to celebrate everyday at the clinic.  Having holidays to decorate for creates a more welcome environment in the clinic which is so important!
