(Updated 2.15.13) Just popping in to wish you a very happy V-Day! This day is all about love, so I wanted to get this Thursday off to a great start by telling you how much I love having you around here – commenting, emailing, tweeting. It means so, so much to me. And I don’t say it enough. So thank you for being so awesome.

No matter how you feel about this greeting card holiday, I hope you have a very happy day…and maybe eat some chocolates.

P.S. I have a few links from the week to share before headed out for the weekend. I also write for Curbly and project Wedding. These are my posts from the week…

Hope you have a great weekend!

I’m not too big on giving gifts for Valentine’s Day, unless it is in the form of candy and cupcakes, but little love notes are pretty cool. Right? So here’s a thoughtful DIY idea for V-Day that will only take a few minutes to make and just a couple of bucks.

Supplies:

small box (I used one of these) // washi tape // sharpie metallic paint pen // old stamps (not collector’s items of course – I bought a bag of 30 or so stamps from Anthro a while back for $6) // pen or pencil for writing messages

How To:

So easy! Flip your tiny stamps over to the back and write a few mini love notes, share a quick story or two, or remind someone special why they’re so great. Then place all these mini love stamps inside a small box or other container. Add a little washi tape to seal the box and maybe a heart or two with your paint pen. That’s it. You are good to go: a thoughtful gift for your love on Valentine’s Day.

I couldn’t resist posting this love notes project (I know – DIY posts two days in a row?!) because today is Jeff and I’s anniversary. We’ve been together for seven years now / married for three.

This year, we decided not to exchange gifts, and instead go to a nice lunch. But one of the things we’ve done in the past, which has been a big hit, is a scavenger hunt for special occasions with little notes, riddles, etc. It is always really fun. So I thought this idea for Likes & Loves Notes would be perfect for today.

I recycled the “Likes & Loves” page  from a mini notebook that came with an Anthro gift card I received. And then I added some metallic gold washi tape to the top, wrote a couple of things that I like and love about my hubby on each card, stuck them in mini envelopes, and hid them around the house.

If you need a template for mini envelopes, there’s one here that I really like.

Hope you’ll try this the next time you want to show your sweetie a little love. If you need ideas for where to hide your love messages, here are a few:

Or in a stack of books…

Have you ever done a scavenger hunt before?
