So little time, so much love. A bit of cupid is in all of us even on the bleakest of winter days. The time to move is now my heart-shaped friends.
Looking for crafty ideas? Babble takes the cake (especially when coming from Design Mom, Gabrielle Blair) on creative ways to express your love on Valentine’s Day. Such lovely things come from Yellow Owl Workshop especially for this holiday…
This You and Me card might not be the typical Hallmark Valentine’s card but it really, really like it.
Make your own homemade radical card with the Love You stamp set.
Say your sweetheart lives in another town. Why not mail them a Moleskin Message Pocket Postal Notebook filled with nothing but kisses from yours truly.
If you would like to try your hand in calligraphy, the Love Letter Kit from terrain is a beautiful alternative from the expected Valentine’s day card.
Paper Source always comes up with delightful, fresh ideas each Valentine’s season.
This year our boys will be scribbling out thoughtful words (that’s the plan anyway) on these Owl Valentine Cards.
Rad and Hungry is kind of like an international office supply store with loads of cool supplies not found at the local OfficeMax. Surprise your office mate with this limited-edition Valentine’s Day Rad Bag filled with office supplies in red, pink, white and gold from countries around the globe.
And pick up one of their kitchy cupid cards while you’re at it! (Psss…they’re free if you spend $40)
Once your card is written why not place it in an Everyday Leather Envelope Wallet from Mark and Graham. Not only will your card be sealed in a lovely presentation but your sweetheart’s future correspondence will be always protected. Personalize it with a scripted letter to make her all the more unique.
If all you have time for this year is a construction paper heart, (fold in half, cut one half of a heart, ta da), so be it. Writing this card will require a few moments of slowing down and expressing a crafted thought or two. This will be a gift in itself.
