On Monday I made Valentine cupcakes with chocolate batter and fluffy white icing that I dyed pink. The cupcakes looked so scrumptious, but I never got the opportunity to taste one. I was never really in the mood for desert, which is VERY odd for me. When I wanted desert I kept thinking that the pink icing was strawberry flavored and that turned me off. (I love fresh strawberries but nothing, except for candy, that is strawberry flavored.)

These cute cinnamon heart marshmallows are made by Whimsy and Spice, a husband/wife team based in Brooklyn. Wouldn't you just love to have one of these little darlings in your hot chocolate?
These glittery tags would be great atop a colorfully wrapped gift for a loved one. And with the pink rose, the wrapping is almost as exciting as the package itself. If you're interested go stop by The French Nest Co.
Gooseberry, gooseberry, gooseberry, such a funny word! I've never seen these bowls in pink before. Not only are they cute but they have a purpose and can be useful. Of course you could use them for food, but how great would it be to have these in your craft room with all kinds of bobbles spilling out? I love the whimsical design.
This set of rose-shaped soaps are also from oriental trading. They come 12 to a set I think and each set is on sale for $2.99. They would make a lovely romantic addition to any bathroom. You could get a cute soap dish and use them as hand soaps or you could use them for bathing. I could go on and on with tons of great pink items I find, but if you've made it this far (you trooper, you) I find it very unnecessary to bore you any longer.

(roses J sent me for our 2nd Valentine's Day)
For our second Valentine's Day J was far away in Detroit. I wanted to give him a gift that kept giving after just that one day. I decided to make him a bunch of little cards. I decorated about 90 different cards and wrote a message in each one. I put all the cards in envelopes and on the envelope was a date between February 14th and May 29th (our anniversary) upon which he was allowed to open the card. I placed all the envelopes in a box I decorated and sprayed it with my perfume so that each time he opened it, he'd get a little whiff of me. This was by far J's favorite gift. He told me that sometimes he couldn't wait til the designated date to open the card so he'd open it a day or two sooner. J also recently told me that he used to open the box very quickly just to get a whiff of my perfume.
So, what have you done for your partner?
