DIY Valentine’s Day Cards +TNW Interviews!

By  |  10 Comments

how is the week already half-over (is maybe it’s half-full depending on your outlook on life)? we are moving in less than two weeks and i just started packing. by “packing” i mean i bought some boxes that are sitting in the living room and threw away old medication and cans of soup. i should probably get on that…

oh and it’s almost valentine’s day! i have written previously about expressing expectations for this holiday (and really at any time) because that’s what i see as the biggest conflict around valentine’s day in particular.

i have exciting news that i am now a regular contributor to Maid Brigade’s expanding blog (no, i’m not writing about cleaning – i’m covering the relationship side of things!) this month, i shared some DIY valentine’s day cards you could still make for you boo! i will share the cutest one my friend alison created…

          hmm that’s odd because it directly links there. susie’s own header may be taking up your whole page so try scrolling down and my face should popup! thanks for being interested and sorry it’s causing you issues jane!

          you could also try this link but again scroll past where the large header takes up most of the screen 🙂

    You’re all over the internet today! I told K that I only wanted a card (and maybe some chocolate-covered strawberries) for Valentine’s Day. I still need to find my card for him- maybe the right idea is to MAKE the card! Thanks!!

    Those cards are seriously adorable! We don’t do anything exciting for Valentines Day, depends whether we are busy or not(usually we are, and this year is no exception!)? Glad you mentioned the podcasts since I have a pile of cleaning I want to do!
