A Homemade Valentine's Day

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- It's a day to celebrate love and people around the area are sending flowers and chocolates but what about a simple Valentine's Day card?

It's a happy day for Patricia Wells who hand makes and delivers over 700 Valentine's Day cards

She tells us, "I start in November and I progressively work straight through all the snow and all the shopping days for Christmas. I don't shop for Christmas so I spend my time making valentines."

In 1986 this Queen of Hearts made 12 Valentine's but now things are a bit different.

"Last year I did 546 valentines. This year I did 727 valentines so next year I don't know where I'm going."

It only takes some glue, bright red paper, a few flowers and a poem to make the card complete.

She went to Windsor Gardens Assisted Living Home to spread the love to the residents. Normal Byrd just was just of the many people who got a card "It's beautiful and I don't know how long it will be but I will look at it everyday and it will keep me happy."

It's a simple way to let people know that they are loved this Valentine's Day. Patricia says, "Makes me feel really good. It makes me want to do more valentines next year."
