we don’t exchange gifts for valentine’s day in TDP home but i couldn’t possibly let the day get away without a little crafting? i found the adorable arrow template from fellowfellow and got to decorating! next, i came up with a plan in which this little guy could be executed.

in a digital world, i had to incorporate a bit of the old with the new. did you know cardboard has been around since 1870?! i thought this was a cute & simple way to show nate how much i care. what can i say? i’m lovestruck! i swiped his iphone while he was in the shower and plugged in a ‘special alarm.’

he will find this tucked away into his pocket during lunch hour and hopefully will brighten the day just a bit ^_*

who else misses sending valentines? remember those perforated ones you exchanged from classmates? they were the best! x hope you have an amazing day single or taken everyone!
