Atomic Digs This! Valentine's Day...May as Well Make it Amusing.

Valentine's Day has usually been strange for me. My birthday falls four days after VD Day and for me oddly, it also feels like Ground Hog Day (also in February). I have broken up or been dumped between February 14th through the 18th numerous times. However, those days are over baby. Let’s get on to the liquid red, volcano lava Valentine’s erotic lovin’!! If you’re shopping for someone who doesn’t want the usual Spencer Gifts chatchke, then head over to these places but buy now because you’ll have to shop online at Etsy to purchase these lovelies:

The Crafty Hag has been to Atomic quite a bit. Coralette Damme works hard to bring us tasty and unique pieces. Now you can get something for your Valentine honey and something for yourself and The Crafty Hag will show her appreciation by taking half off the price of one of your selections! BOGO SALE!! BUY ONE GET ONE 1/2 PRICE JAN. 25-30, 2010.

Ghoul Valentine original ink wash illustration by The Crafty Hag - $17.00 or BOGO!

Blinklink’s shop, another Atomic glass artist, Andrea Cammarata who is a delicious glass artist, has these delicious chains with little hearts on it. If you think you can whip something up D-I-Y style and want to make something for your sweetheart, this fabulous chain is sold by the foot. The chain is rhodium plated and is guaranteed to not tarnish. You can add other charms or trinkets from your lovers broken jewelry and create something unique.

Silver Heart charm chain $12 per foot.

Dr. Awkward’s card set “You Know You Love My Uni-Brow” cracks my nut (if I had ‘em) any day. What a loving Valentine’s Day card. Say it with brains and humor, way fuckin’ better than a Hallmarky piece of schlock any day!

Dr. Awkard's Uni-brow Set of 3 (Mustard) - $7.00 on Etsy.

The peeps mentioned here are all Florida crafters/artists and all offer affordable and witty homespun gifties. I hope all of you who have favorite significant others get to make out like a mo-fo! And for all you single people out there, buy yourself a giftie, the hell with Valentine's Day, it is highly overrated. But let's all try and "Get in Onnnnnn" like Marvin Gaye style because baby, that's what Valentine's Day really is allllll about!
