Happy Valentine’s Day + $50 Hobby Lobby Giveaway!


I hope you have a wonderful day and let those closest to your heart, know how much they mean to you!

So today is actually my birthday. I know I know, I was a love baby haha! The most ironic thing about my birthday being on one of the biggest chocolate holidays ever, is I don’t like chocolate. Anyone else dislike chocolate? I’m just not a big fan of it. Weird, I know.

Ever since I started my blog 3.5 years ago, I have had a week long Birthday Bash celebration….Well, this year, being pregnant with my third and having more on my plate than I’ve had previously, I decided a quiet celebration was in order. Plus this birthday just might be my last one in the twenties, so I wanted to savor this birthday as much as possible!

But don’t worry, even though I’m not doing the Big Bash this year, I do have a little something planned for you today, keep reading! :)

Valentine’s Day Card

handmade valentine card

A couple weeks ago, I posted this picture of my Valentine’s Day card for Davis during the Silhouette giveaway. Well, I wanted to show a couple better pics since that one was super last minute and not so hot! AND I think the card deserved a better photo shoot! What do you think?

I used Silhouette’s new Double-sided Adhesive to make this card. LOVE the double sided adhesive! You can have so much fun with glitter, fine beads, and colored powders with it. Simply use your Silhouette CAMEO or PORTRAIT to cut the design in the double-sided adhesive, apply to your surface, then sprinkle on glitter. Too easy!

    The most romantic was when I received a dozen purple roses after arguing with hubby then boyfriend. I still think about them because purple roses smell heavenly!

    My most memorable romantic Valentine’s gift was receiving a few red roses from a college boyfriend.

    Mindy Hammond says:

    The most romantic gift for valentine’s day would probably be music or craft supplies because it showed that my husband knows me well.

  5. 555

    I find the cards I receive more romantic than the gifts. This year I received chocolates and a gift certificate to my local scrapbook shop., which made me very happy.

    Lauren says:

    This is going to sound just a little silly, but two years ago, I was stuck in Okinawa, Japan with no family around and my husband was deployed. I really wasn’t expecting to get anything and was a bit sad! But apparently my hubby got in touch with our neighbor and friend and had him purchase flowers for me from him. It was really sweet of him and so unexpected that that’s really one of the most memorable Valentines I had!

    Darla Bunyan says:

    The best Valentines Day I have had with my hubby is our very first one. He actually turned his cell phone OFF for the whole day, took off work, and spent the entire day with me!

    Anjie B. says:

    I think THIS Valentine’s Day was the best. I didn’t get a physical gift but we had a MUCH needed date night ON Valentine’s Day and dessert in bed while watching one of our favorite shows once we got home. Very nice and chill.

  9. 559

    Oh, what I could do with $50 to spend at Hobby Lobby!

    My first Valentine’s Day with my now husband, he bought me a dozen roses. It was the first time I received a dozen roses.

    Can’t wait to try the drink recipe! Sounds delicious!
    I can’t say that I have received anything funny or romantic…….just the normal types of things. Flowers, jewelry and chocolate!

    I love what you have done to create a craft room. I hope I win the $50 gift certificate for Hobby Lobby. It’s one of my favorite stores.

    mary says:

    ONe year we forgot all about Valentines and went to a fast food burger joint!

  15. 565

    My hubby is a jewelry store manager, so we don’t celebrate Valentines very much. But every year he does get me the sweetest card!

    My husband got me a cute dog valentine card a couple of years ago. We always talk about getting a dog someday. He left it on my car seat and even named the paper dog Snowflake!

    Roses and a hand-made sign. I know this sounds sorta regular, but I was THRILLED!!

    Most romantic: A CD with a corresponding list full of songs and the reason why they make my hubby think of me and us. :)

    Thea says:

    we spent the week leading up to Valentine’s this year reconnecting. we’ve had crazy amounts of turmoil and stress over the last few months and it left us exhausted and distant from each other. so, so happy that is all fixed now – feels like we can take on anything because our bond is strong.

    Dezi A says:

    My husband and I don’t really do gifts – we celebrate by having a candlelight dinner with our 5 sons. This year he made a delicious dinner though (instead of me) so that was a fantastic gift. :)

    Mel says:

    The funniest “gift” was a quartet serenade delivered at my office!!!

    My husband wrote the most beautiful poem for me because he has a hard time putting things into words.

    Brigid says:

    My husband is deployed this Valentines Day. He left me a card to open with instructions inside telling me to treat myself to massage. And he pre-ordered flowers and had them sent to me! :)

    Krafty Kate says:

    My birthday is February 16th! Before I started dating my husband the only guy that didn’t dump me at the beginning of February was my husband’s best friend! Yes I married my ex boyfriend’s BFF! Well this guy came for our Valentine’s date with a pineapple. He said that flower’s die and pineapple’s grow- LAME!

    withak says:

    Among all of his romantic Valentine efforts, including flowers, chocolates and a date night, my hubby has a knack for giving me the funniest cards. This year was no exception and we are still laughing about it.

  33. 583
    Melissa says:

    The funniest Valentine’s gift I rec’d was a night shirt with big kissy lips all over it. Only thing was, I’m a medium and it was a 3X! Hubby swore he talked with the sales clerk and she helped him pick it out. To this day I wonder what picture of me he painted for her!!!

  34. 584
    Jami Cobb says:

    My hubby wrote me a love letter in calligraphy. He’s not a romantic type at all, so it was really special.

    Jen R says:

    My husband ordered me a huge fortune cookie with a silly personal message in it, and had it delivered to the school I was working at

  36. 586
    Danae says:

    I think this year was the funniest. My husband works at a high school, and he brought home a cheesy red bear and some cheap chocolate that wasn’t picked up by the high school girls it was given to.

    Alyssa K. says:

    The standard flowers and chocolate – call me old fashioned!

    Most memorable Valentine gift from my husband when we had only been married about three years, a ruby and diamond ring! It wasn’t expensive but it was thoughtful and beautiful. I loved it!

    Kimberly Pickett says:

    A few years ago my husband bought me a Nook for Valentine’s day. He completely surprised me (which he normally doesn’t do) and it was really sweet!

  41. 591
    Sarah says:

    In high school, one of my friends and I were both single on Valentine’s Day, so we made each other “Death Day” cards. They were basically V-day cards with X’s through all the hearts. It was definitely memorable :)

    I laid not-so-subtle hints this year that I wanted a long black necklace for V day this year… And I got one! #myhusbandrocks

    Malena Garcia says:

    The funniest & most romantic gift my husband ever gave me was a build-a-bear red hello kitty. He knew that I thought they were too cute so he snuck off to the mall & got me one. Picturing my 6′ 3″ husband standing there doing all the rituals that the workers make you do so your animal will be happy & loving before they stuffed her… Makes me smile every time I look at her. :-)

      Peggie says:

      forgot to add that I have had many gifts over the years, not that I am THAT old, but I think one of the funniest was from my late husband. Our son was a little over a year old and would always climb in bed with us. My husband made a card (we had no money for a gift as he was a seminary student and I a stay at home mom). His card was hand drawn and said “to the only woman who can sleep with two men at the same time”. Now that is not funny but way back then the world was not the way it was then.

    Chris Baker Cox says:

    After we first got married, my husband bought me flowers…which he never does…and made me a fantastic dinner. It was very out of character for him, which made it even more special.

    My most favorite gift was my card signed by all 3 of my boys (boyfriend, cat, and dog) :)
