my internet went down and posting didn't happen yesterday. We resume today with extra fun - a giveaway! Make a comment on this post and I'll (randomly) chose a winner on Saturday and have it mailed out. You'll get it in time for V-day! Included:

12 sheets romantic cardstock in pastel pink, blue, green
romantic post-it note pad
romantic magnets in lavender, green, black
red glitter alphabet stickers
6 yds valentine ribbon
2 gel pens, one red, one pink
crafty box with buttons, ribbon, epoxy stickers and heart confetti.

Yay! I am so excited!

Here is a Valentines Craft Link and

"How Do I Love Thee" number 2:

Sometimes on weekend mornings the boys stay out of our room in favor of more entertaining pursuits. Craig and I will lay there and chat for a bit, and then usually he'll end up pulling me close, snuggling in, and promptly snoring in my ear.
I totally make a fuss about it. "I could be up and accomplishing all this stuff" I say, or "Oh, FUN for me, let me lay here, wide awake, while you snore in my ear." But secretly, I love it. I love that he loves falling asleep with me in his arms. I love that it's so natural and easy for him.

But don't tell him I said so.

Kateastrophe said...

Yeah hi! Pick me! I love valentine's day in all it's glory!!

Maxine said...

These "how do I love thee" moments are so sweet! They inspire me to put away those postpartum hormones and love my own husband once more! :)

Amber said...

Hahaha. Great "how do I love thee" story. Are you sure Craig doesn't mind you sharing them?

AND....PICK ME...I want to win. I already lost when Karalenn did her drawing. It's my turn now.

I've always wanted to do a giveaway on my blog but I am always afraid that no one would post. This is a cute idea you are doing. Beyond valentines day, I don't think I treasure all the little "how do I love thees" moments enough.

Tell Connor to put a little crease in the corner of the piece of paper with my name on it and then it will get caught on his finger as he is drawing from the hat and I will win the PRIZE!!!!! Yeah!

Big. Nerd. I love it. I can just see you pretending to be all annoyed and then really just loving it. Oh how I like you my silly friend.

Penelope Crackers said...

You know that "nerd" is a big compliment right? Wouldn't want that to sound awful in my last comment. In fact when Seth proposed to me I called him a nerd. :) See.

Rika Silverpaw said...

How do you come up with all this stuff? its so sweet and cute!

Pick me!!! hehe

Gurgy said...

Number 1) Don't pick me.

Number 2) I love your closeness and always sigh a little inside when I read them from pure envy! hehe... love ya sweetie


Nanette said...

My gosh! I'm way behind in the comments contest! I was worried that the "How Do I Love Thee" was going to turn out PG-13, but no, it's very sweet :)

Nanette said...

Oh, and what is "glassine?"

Hannah said...

Your kit is very adorable, and I am checking in as requested so you know that I love you and read your blog daily. However, as you well know, I do not do crafty or creative so please do not choose me :)

Gretchen said...

Oh, I completely tried to comment last night (making some sarcastic remark about making Singles Awareness day cards) but I guess it didn't go through.
Oh well. Count me in!

Maleen said...

Pulling a reader out of the woodwork. I have just started checking in but I guess it is a good time. I like your Valentine ideas...what a fun thing to do before the upcoming holiday.

That is too cute! XD

I just wanted to be 18 on your list. Land's sakes. I guess this is one way to get people to make comments...bribery.

I never knew about Craig's quick proposal! Land's sakes #2! Ya...wouldn't want to say I love you just quite yet.

We are glad it all worked out the way it did. You guys are peanut butter and jelly.
