Valentines for Hubby

23 Jan

My husband deserves a wonderful Valentines gift.  That being said, it is not an easy task.  It needs to be personal, not too mushy, healthy and not bust the budget. No romantic get-away to the Caribbean as nice as it sounds. So I have been gathering ideas.  I think I will step out of my ordinary routine and first make him breakfast. (I would do it in bed, but he is an early riser) What better way to start the day than with bacon hearts.bacon heartThe Paper Mama

Then pack a lunch (again something I rarely do) in a fun take-out box. This one from Tammy Mitchell Designs is designed for a miniature take-out box, but I can enlarge the idea.  Take-out boxes can be found at your local craft store.2013-fortune-cookie-valentine-web-1024x712

Then after a long day of work maybe something for soaking in the whirlpool tub.  Creating Sisterhood has a great recipe for Cinnamon Oatmeal Milk Bath.  Very easy and most of the ingredients can be found in your kitchen.Oatmeal Milk Bath2Pretty sure he will like all of this, who doesn’t liked to be pampered once in a while?

Valentine’s Day

8 Feb

Valentine’s Day is just 6 days away, are you ready?  Here are a couple of cute ideas that you can do for your sweetie.  It’s not a holiday that I go overboard with, but I do like to do little special things for the ones I love.

These little treat bags from Mama Miss are a fun way to share your love.  You could take this idea and use it for just about any holiday.mamamiss

Heart Wreath

14 Jan

I like this Valentine’s Day wreath from Martha Stewart.  It is an easy idea and you could make it so many different ways.  I like the red pistachios but you could use conversation heart candies, paper hearts, small dried roses, little pine cones, buttons and the list goes on.  I think I would paint the whole heart not just the sides like Martha does.msval

Valentine Love Notes

10 Jan

Valentine”s Day is a little over a month away and for us crafters it’s time to start thinking about what we want to do.  My husband and I have been working on being constructive in our conversations.  It is not that we are destructive, but at times we just forget how important it is to lift each other up.  So with that in mind I have been pulling out ideas that will help me with little love notes to my husband.  I am not a flowery speech kind of person so I need a little help.

This first one is a paper airplane love not from Country Living.  They have a download available so all you do is print it out and add your sweet sentiments.paper-craft-Idea-Notebook-Get-Crafty-0212-mdn
This cute Bee My Valentine display comes from How Does She.  You can add your little love notes in the wire twist.  I might see if I can come up with some fuzzy little bumble bees to add to it.

Lisa Storms has some sweet ideas for packing a Valentine lunch.  This would be a fun surprise.
