Oh Dang, It’s Almost Valentine’s Day.
I love to think that I’m a planner and organized enough not to be a last minute scrambler, but the truth is, more times than not I am a “by the skin of my teeth” type of mom.
(Maybe it’s because I do some of my best work under pressure. yeah, I like that excuse)
I saw an email about Minted's classroom sized, customizable valentine's in early January and I really wanted to order some for Everly to pass out during her preschool Valentine's Day party. Last night I looked at the date and said, “Oh crap! I should have ordered those a week ago!” I jumped on their site and whew, sure enough I had a day or two left to get them ordered.
Evie picked her favorite design then we personalized it with her photo and a little message to her classmates:
Gah, that photo makes me smile. And they come in a 2.5 x 3.5” size that fits perfectly inside their little handmade construction paper mailboxes. A pack of 25 with envelopes is only $21. My friends at Minted agreed to spread the last minute love with a few of you too.
I’m giving away two, $75 credits to Minted so that you can order your own customized valentines, or a special gift for someone on your list. Don’t need kiddie cards? Here are a few other fantastic V-day picks:
Minted has a slew of Valentine’s Day themed art prints that are perfect for framing and giving to someone you love.
I love this idea of a custom journal. You can personalize the outside and inside for just $16!
So that you can use your credit in time for Valentine’s Day, I’ll announce the two winners tomorrow at lunch. To enter, leave a message below and tell me about someone you love. Anyone at all! I can’t wait to read them.

- karmic-intervention said: I’m in love with my husband. :) he’s the most amazing person I’ve ever met and he’s my best friend. He’s seen me at my worst and has loved me, unconditionally, through it all. Instead of growing apart, we grow closer every day. I’m a lucky girl.

- descantforhope said: I love my great grandma. Every valentines makes me nostalgic for her. She always sent us valentines with 50 cent pieces in the mail, every year until she died at 92. Now I always send valentines too. I think she’d smile.
