{ valentine's day }

Oh my gosh, I can’t believe that Valentine's Day
is just around the corner.
I have been searching for the perfect message for my hubby’s Valentine’s card.
How about one of these sentiments?
  • “Everyday I fall in love with you more and more. Well not everyday. Yesterday you were pretty      annoying”. Happy Valentines Day.
  • “You are my greatest adventure”. Happy Valentines Day.
  • “You are the cream in my coffee”. Happy Valentines Day.
  • "Whatever I do is better with you”. Happy Valentines Day.
Let me know if you have a idea for the sentiment for his card or which one is your favorite?
I am thinking that he may not like the first one, you think? Just for Fun!
Here are a few fun Valentines items
that I found surfing the Internet.

Handcrafted, personal, unique framed artwork from Suzy Shoppe on Etsy.
This personalized gift is a simple and modern signed art piece

made from paper hearts commemorating this special time of year.

I love this handmade Valentine's Coffee Cozy by Handmade Therapy on Etsy.
Hilda’s shop is filled with all kinds of amazing handmade gifts and goodies.

Now this goes directly into the “just 2 cute” category.
This lovely handmade clay bowl with a nest, eggs and love birds.
Handmade by Amy Giacomelli, check out her shop on Etsy at Skye Art.
Love this Valentines Subway Artwork, this is a free printable artwork
available on Jamie’s, Jodie’s and Jennifer’s blog at Eighteen 25.
I hope that this post brought a little sweetness to your day.
Thanks for stopping in and visiting my blog.
Smiles, Paula

  1. So many awesome Valentine's ideas! Thanks for including my coffee cozy :)

  2. wow great projects...I love that frame with all those fun cute..

  3. These are all wonderful ideas, Paula. I think I'm going to create some sort of card for my hubbs using convo hearts to spell out my message:)


  4. I love this Valentine post! I enjoy making my husband's Valentine each year but have trouble coming up with a message too. Your first one is so funny. Thanks for sharing a smile today.

  5. Just shared your January giveaway on my facebook page and on your NaturalGardenSoaps wall!

  6. I love your soap! I'm on the last of 5 bars I bought at Village pharmacy and your posts have inspired me. I even created my own sugar scrub--"thin mint"--a chocolate peppermint scrub, after following your recipes, and have knitted washcloths for my family (I only learned to knit a few months ago). Looking forward to trying another assortment of soaps and to trying more projects. I am thinking that "dino eggs" may be next!

  7. Jenn, OMG I am so happy that I inspired you to create handmade gifts for your family. Thanks for supporting my handmade craft and following my blog. Happy Creating! Smiles, Paula

  8. I too plan on making my husbands card this year, with plenty of hearts :)

  9. I love everything you've picked out! Inspired to sew some coffee collars now! Thanks for sharing.

    Oh, I think the first one is right on the mark....cute today, annoying's all good! lol
