Valentine's Day Cards Made Easy

I usually love to make handmade cards, but this year I don't think I will have the time before Valentine's Day. It's only 2 weeks away!!
My next option would be to go to the card online card store! I'm going to check out Tiny Prints, because you can get 3 FREE greeting cards by being a member of their card program.

I also promised my sister that I would help her make a photo book out of her wedding photos. They have them at Tiny Prints so maybe I'll make one while I'm there choosing a Valentine's Day Card. Has anyone made a photo book via Tiny Prints before?

It took me several hours to make my first photobook (elsewhere), so please feel free to comment with any tips or advice you may have.

On my quest to refresh the look of a few rooms in my home, I realized that purchasing too many new items would get kind of pricey. To stay within my budget, I decided to move some of the wall art and decor from one room to another and only purchase a few new items. In particular, a vase, some decorative pillows and wall decals which I have been wanting to get for a while now.

All Modern is one of over 200 CSN stores and is the perfect place to find all of these items and more. The other CSN stores offer everything from footwear to luggage to home improvement products. They definitely have something for everyone.

I have always opted for traditional paintings and picture frames to decorate my walls, but have been hearing so much about w…

My List of Top 10 Baby Gifts

Many of my friends are having babies in the next little while so I will be attending many baby showers. When buying gifts, I seem to always end up purchasing the same items as they were personally useful to me.

My top ten favorite baby gifts either to give individually or to include in a gift basket are:

1. Baby Cubes
Perfect for storing homemade baby food and snacks on the go when the baby is a bit older.

2. Restaurant Gift Card
Great for the busy new parents. They can have a night out or order take-out.

3. Baby's First Library
Although the baby may end up with several books, it seems you can never have enough of them.

4. Baby Sign Language Books or Videos
These help to reduce temper tantrums and help build confidence as baby sign language helps to reduce the communication barrier between baby and parents.

5. Baby Legs
Makes diaper changes more convenient and can be used to keep baby's legs warm throughout toddlerhood.

6. Scrapbook or Photobook
These would be a great alter…
