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.

Good Luck,
