must have monday: a valentine?

Dear Friends.

Due to work insanity (read: a four day conference exhibit) I will be delayed in getting out fun, quirky valentines. I am leaning toward the above two. That being said, I would really like a valentine (I would settle for a someecard or a blog comment) to distract me as I get to work at 6:20 AM tomorrow. That would be sweet of you.


P.S. So what is the best Valentine that you have ever received?

More information on the above designs can be found on [1] Oh Happy Day and on [2] Mer Mag


must have monday: conversation hearts

Conversation hearts. Everyone seems to have a love-hate thing going on with them. So why not make it a step better. Conversation heart cookies.

Less a craft, more a super simple print out + baking project.

Twig & Thistle brings us this adorable print out for your Valentine’s Day baked good given. Unless you don’t give baked goods, which is just sad to think, but maybe you can look at this as a great time to start. And it will even come with awesome packaging. People will think you are amazing. Feel free to send me a sample of your work.

Recently I wondered how to bring back the elementary school fun of Valentine’s Day. For some reason when you’re 25, it’s not okay to walk up to multiple boys (or even one that you aren’t dating) and hand them a construction paper heart with white-paper lace.

Then care of Apartment Therapy and Twig & Thistle, I found it.  

Let’s be honest, does it get any cuter then fruit with customize Valentine’s Day messages. (The answer…is No). But if you browse on over to T&T, you can download the pdf (link below) and all you have to do is print them out on sticker/label paper. You’ll get such gems like:

I’m going bananas over you!
I love you berry, berry much!
We make the perfect pear!
Orange you glad you’re my valentine!
You’re the apple of my eye!
