Believe it or not, today's post actually comes from my husband! Well, sort of. He sent me this link back before the holidays, which was very sweet of him. He's an awesome husband and he has the ability to make me laugh when I cry and sometimes cry from laughing too hard. Our love is pretty strong and it's only grown deeper since we had Sophia, but we've never been huge Valentine's Day fans. We usually stay holed up in the house, although last year I used it as an excuse to get us gift certificates to go skydiving. His desire, not mine, but he wanted me to go and share the experience so I went too. Man, that was scary as hell. Anyway, I digress... I'll tell that story another time. :)
So if you're into giving gifts this holiday, or maybe you're just into getting gifts, this is an inexpensive, eco-friendly way to create personalized gift wrap. Man Made DIY (seriously, how cool is this: "Handmade Life for the Post Modern Male") features this great gift wrap tutorial using a secondhand post war novel for the letters (although you could use a magazine, annual report, thick newspaper, etc...) and unbleached brown kraft paper.
Is Valentine's Day worthy of your affections or just another holiday? Share your 2 cents!
