Happy Valentines Week!!!

So, since it's Valentines week, I thought I should FINALLY do a post on this sweet holiday. Valentines Day is one of my most favoritest holidays because it gives me a wonderful excuse to give sweet, cheesy, corny gifts, which I LOVE! Here are some of the things that I've created. I plan to give my boyfriend, Dusty, one gift every day of Valentimes week (as he calls it) and on V-day I'm giving him a basket filled with goodies he loves (car washing stuff, TV snacks, candles-yes he loves candles, etc.) I can't wait to find out what he's doing, he's keeping it a surprise!

This is one of my favorite Valentines cute an I-love fake I-pod!!! You can find the tutorial here. It's made using sweet hearts, construction paper and Hershey's kisses or mini Reeces.

This deck of cards was inspired by something I saw online...don't remember where though...SORRY! I bought a plain deck of cards and printed a list of 52 things I love about Dusty and glued one reason to each card. It took awhile, but the result is super special.

Monday morning, he is getting a chilled box of Swiss Rolls. He used to get Swiss Rolls packed in his lunch box and the ice pack would make them cold. Ever since, he has liked to eat them chilly. If you've never tried this, please do, they are YUM! I know, classy right?

Here is a box of Mrs. Fields White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies that I just fancied up with some construction paper, buttons, and twine. So much more than just a box of cookies!

Next up, some Ghiradelli bars with a sweet new wrapper. I just inserted a picture into a word document and added a note to it.

Here are some Toblerone bars all cutesied out for my mom, sister, and dad.

Sorry about the lateness of this post, but I hope you enjoy and add a little Valentines goodness to your week if you haven't finished your Valentines already. Happy Valentimes week!!!
Love to my sweet followers and everyone else out there in blogland!!
Until I can steel another few minutes out of my day,

Cute ideas, just a little late for me (and a bit pricier, since I have to mail anything to family).

These are great! That’s sweet that you gave him the Swiss Rolls cold like his mom did when he was a kid. I love that you and your boyfriend give a little gift each day of the week…… I bet that make it’s extra special. You’ll have to show us what you got. :o)

It’s pretty sad this year. I wrote the V-day post I posted last night a few days ago and had it scheduled to post next week. I was talking to a friend last night who told me V-day is this weekend…….WHAT! I have no idea where my brain went. I haven’t even started on his card and have no idea what we are going to do this year. I know, I’m bad. Anyhoo I’ll think of something.

These are really some fantastic ideas. I might even attempt to make the ipods for my sons. Thanks for sharing your talents.
