Sharing the Love

A tradition we have started in our home is giving our kids love for Valentine's Day. Love at our house comes in the form of special coupon books from mom & dad. See above.

I love it because (a) it is free, (b) it allows me to truly give to my children what they want most from me—time, and (c) no sugar induced hyperness/cavities. Perfect.
To share my love to all of you, here is a link where you can download the artwork for the booklets created by me. There are two pages.

Lots of love to all of you!

p.s. If you are wondering how the full-time job is going, I really like it. I love it. It's a little like being on a treadmill that I can't turn off, but happily I am surrounded by office supplies. It's rekindled my weird obsession for them. I just can't get enough of the post-its and sharpie markers. And sometimes while I am waiting for the printer I breathe in the copy machine scent and I am reborn. 


  1. THAT IS A GREAT IDEA. I have been wracking my brain - perfect. Thanks for the idea.

    Glad you like your new job - are you still teaching too? I'm so impressed by you.

  2. That's an especially generous gift from you since you're so strapped for time.

    I'm glad you like your job. I was going to call you this weekend to see how your week was. Obviously I didn't. Turns out, I am the chopped liver.

  3. Thanks for the awesome gift. I will certainly use it for my kids. I was looking at those great pictures and thinking, "How much time will it take me to make something look that nice." Walla. You're awesome.

    That toner smell....awww. I get that way too.

    (Sometimes I have to go back through my comments and delete all my exclamation points.)

  4. Cute idea. I'll have to remember that for my future kids...

    I have a strange obsession with office supplies too. And I LOVE the feel of warm paper just out of the copier/laser printer.

    I'm glad you like your new job - you're amazing!

  5. How awesome are you??? I am late getting these, but I will be sure to use them next year.

    Sometimes I can't help myself when I find a cute notebook with matching pens. I have plenty already, but they just call my name. I love the smell of freshly copied paper, too. Call me crazy!
