Be My Valentine?

Monday, February 7, 2011

Valentine's day is just around the corner!
This year I decided to get crafty and make my own Valentine's.

These cards are sooooo simple, it's amazing what you can do with a variety of card stock. 

I've heard that there aren't any craft stores where I'll be living in Italy (yea, big surprise). What am I going to do?
I'm not a fan of the "e-card." There's something much more personal and thoughtful about receiving a card in the mail.


  1. Super cute! I'm making my Valentine cards too this year! I recommend stocking up on card making supplies before you come. The base does have a very small Arts & Crafts store as well. I order my stuff online now...not as fun but it works!

  2. Its definitely true that there aren't craft stores.. what I wouldn't do to have a micheal's nearby! Where are you moving in Italy? I know there's an air force base up in Vincenza, is that where you're going?

  3. The air force base is actually in Aviano, as far as I know it's the only air force base in Italy.

  4. There is an Army base in Vicenza...and they have a better bx from what I hear...haven't been there yet. I recent;y put in an order with Joann's, thankfully they do ship here. Hobby Lobby also ships here as well. is great for ordering photo's, so much cheaper ($0.06/print) than walgreens and you get so many free photo's and goodies a month! I just ordered a cricut from have them for GREAT prices along with cartridges! Can't wait to get it!
