I’ll never forget the homemade cards that my children made for me when they were younger. Those cards hold a very special place in my heart because they came from their heart. The lopsided hearts, the “Be Mine”, “I love you” and all the other sweet sentiments that they each wrote out in their wobbly handwriting and of course a few misspelled words.
I don’t have to tell you that we have just a few short weeks until Valentines Day is here. So when people start talking about this special day of love, what do you think of? I think about family and friends and letting them know how much I love them. There are many different ways to convey your love to someone, flowers, candy, and cards just to name a few. One of my favorite ways to say “I love you” to family and friends is to send them a card.
Shutterfly has some really cute Valentine cards that you can personalize to send out to the ones that you love. I have looked at them and found some that I think are so cute.
Not only do they have cute cards to send out, Shutterfly also has a line of cute photo and personalized photo gifts. One thing that caught my eye were the calling cards. These would be perfect to hand out to new friends (or even old friends). Of course I can’t tell you about them without showing you one of the ones that I liked the best.
Don’t forget about those thank you cards you may need to send out to the ones who get you all the cute little Valentine gifts to show their love to you.
You can tell Shutterfly what Valentine’s Day means to you, to get 25 free cards.

Over the past several months I have noticed that there are some crafty people out there in the blog world. After reading about and looking at some of the crafts/home projects that a lot of you all are involved in, I decided that I needed a project too. Mind you that mine is not in any way as elaborate as some of the others, but I am happy with it just the same.
Yesterday morning I got busy at the computer making my design, then I headed to Michael’s to get the supplies that I would need to complete the project. This is what I started out with:
I know that Valentine’s Day is still a month away, but I wanted to go ahead and make something to put up now so that we would have more than one day to enjoy it. I’m already thinking about what my next project is going to be.

Once we got moved in, our living room looked like this for several days.
