Carving Your Love on a Tree

Am I a terrible person if I say that I've always wanted to do this?

I suppose getting one of these charming jewelry pieces from Uncommon Goods is a better alternative...

Creative Valentines

Well, I have definitely been bitten by the love bug and am actively participating in Valentines Day this year. And I couldn't be more excited. I've never hated the holiday or anything, its just that I never had a special someone during the holiday, and I was usually at rehearsal for some show or another anyways. But this year I am so excited to spend Valentines with my sweet valentine.

And of course, me being the perfectionist that I am, I want to find the perfect gift, card, gesture, etc...Boy, can that be tough! You have to find the perfect balance--not too cheesy, but still sentimental, not cliche, but still romantic, has to show that it comes from the heart....and for me, no store bought card or item from the Valentines Day aisle will do to give someone.

So, rather than do my homework (because who wants to do that, really?) I perused google for creative valentine ideas, not necessarily to use, but I thought I needed to do a little research on this holiday that is rather new to me--I mean let's face it, the last time i really considered valentines was when I was picking out a box of Princess cards to hand out in 2nd grade. But anyways....

This library card catalogue valentine is just so charming and so personal--a great way to record memories and look back on shared experiences. I think things like this and hand written letters are so special and say so much more than a two dollar hallmark card. So sweet!
