Personalized Valentines

I have something against those valentines you buy in the box at Target that include "one free teacher" valentine and have cheezy sayings and goofy characters on them. I loved them when I was little, and I know the kids do too, but I'm just picky that way.

For my little guy's first Valentine's day I created a picture Valentine for him, with a cute black and white picture of him that I made look like a Valentine and I took them to Target and printed a bunch of copies and bought envelopes from Michael's and slipped them into his classmate's cubbies. All of the moms loved them!

This year, I've put together this cute little card for his classmates and to send to family.
Want one too? Send me a pic and your kid's "classified ad" and I'll put something together for $15.00. Each design will be a little different, with different colors and graphics. I'll send you the high-res graphic and all you'll need to do is print them! And feel free to be inspired by mine to create your own too!


  1. This might be the cutest thing I have ever seen! A little guy who loves corndogs for breakfast...what a catch!


    I kind of think I would like them with my pets...I may email you this weekend :)

  3. A-dor-able!

    So very inspiring to do some fun stuff with my photoshop!

  4. HOW CUTE!!! Oh, if only I had children!!!!

  5. What a great idea! You're so creative, I love it! Like Muffy said...if I only had kids!

  6. Cute,cute. I feel the same about the store-bought ones...then and now. Do you remember AGONIZING over which one to give which boy in 3rd grade???? I do the same for our son's valentine's...get them from Shutterfly for family and friends. For school, I drew a little "Adam" cartoon that I use every year and it seems to go over well.

  7. Oh my gosh! I love this! You think it's creepy to make one with the ultrasound picture after we find out the baby's gende? Ha! Maybe we'll wait until next year!

  8. What a fantastic card...wish I still had little ones at home..

  9. I read this one day too late - I just bought Lauren's last night at the store, but maybe it's still an idea for Josh for his friends. Let me see what I can think up. I'm an accountant so I'm not very clever at those things. Lauren will be so excited to get her picture of Walker. She still has the 1st one.

  10. that is the cutest thing i've seen all day!



  11. That's so cute it makes me want to procreate!

  12. Wow that is the cutest card I've seen! I just might have to think of a way to get me, beau and puppy in a pic!!

  13. How precious! I am in love with this idea!

  14. This is too cute!! I love this idea!

  15. I was just telling J last night how ridiculously talented you are.... case in point

Come On Get Happi with Happikins™

One of my girlfriends is a fabulous entrepreneur with several successful businesses under her belt. Her most recent endeavor reaches past general consumerism and takes a creative and fun approach to the impact we make on the environment.

Meet Happikins: There are 18,760 pounds of unnecessary lunchtime waste generated by the average elementary school each year. Paper napkins contribute to this waste — and they're also a drain on expenses. Did you know most kids use $200 worth of paper napkins a year?
Happikins are reusable cloth napkins designed specifically for kids. They can even be used as place mats for children who have food allergies. Happikins™ are a fun and easy way to teach your child the importance of making smart environmental choices. Oh, and wiping the crud off the corners of their mouths. You can choose from 3 sets of Happikins:
Each set of Happikins comes with five napkins and a durable pouch that makes a nice home for the napkins and fits nicely in a lunchbox. You can ev…

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …
