Sending Love

This year I am sending Valentine’s Day cards.

Somehow it got crazy at Christmas, and it felt like adding

one more thing to my “to do” list might break me.

So, in an effort not to destroy myself

in the pursuit of perfection, I decided to look for a new way…

If I am not sending Christmas cards then what do I want to do???

I want the people that I love to know it.

I want to send that love in the mail.

I want to do this at a less busy time in the year.

Valentine’s Day cards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I am so very happy doing it this way.

I am not under the pressure of Christmas.

Nothing to wrap.
Nothing to bake.
Just love, hearts, and envelopes!

If you like this idea…

has a template that you drag and drop your photos onto.

You can pick them up “in store” or have them mailed to you.

Easy Peasy

Use the code “LOVE” and you will get 20% off your order!!!

Looking for cool ways to address your envelopes???

Pinterest has some great ideas!

Pretty addressed envelopes for wedding!

how to address an envelope with style

I liked the bottom one the best.

A friend of mine works for the postal service and she

begged me to not to do my zip codes like this.

It bugs them I guess…

Looks good to me, but I don’t want someone

coming on my playground and making my job harder,

so I’m not going to annoy our sweet postal people either.

Well, I had better get back to writing love notes to my family.

I have 35 more cards to go!

to you sweet people.
