(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!
Well, I’m still gearing up for Valentine’s Day. And since I recently shared a floral DIY on Project Wedding for V-Day , I thought I’d pass the link along here too.
Do you ever make your own flower arrangements? This tutorial will show you how you can create an ombre-inspired arrangement on a budget ($10 and under) using grocery store flowers.
P.S. I am honored to be included amongst a great list of DIY bloggers for Valentine’s Day over on Daily Candy. And I was over on the HP blog last week, The Next Bench, sharing some of my inspirations as a design blogger.
I’m sending out a few last minute Valentine’s Day cards this week with some help from Jordan of Create Like Crazy. She designed an awesome set of modern, Valentine’s Day greeting cards that double as wall art especially for Paper & Stitch readers. You can download the entire set below.
Once you download the free PDF, it’s as simple as cutting the cards out, folding them in half, and mailing them out. Once your recipient receives a card in the mail, he or she can cut the front of the card off and hang it on the wall as artwork (after they read the sweet note you left inside of course).

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.
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
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.
