Valentine Contest Winner

Thank you to everyone who left a comment to enter my Valentine Contest. You are full of great ideas! Unfortunately, I haven't decided the best one yet. Maybe a combination. Here are a few creative thoughts I received.

Key in on what he likes and just show you care. Don't let the gift do the talking!
Isn't that sweet? We do tend to forget the point of the gift-giving

Wani's idea was fabulous, and I may to this for Christmas.
You could always take a picture of the two of you and have it turned into artwork.
Can't do this now because it's cost-prohibitive. But how creative is that?

Lissa offered this suggestion:
Does your newspaper publish a Valentine Page? (like in the classifieds) I wished my hubby Happy Valentines Day that way...
Alas, my community newspaper doesn't publish announcements or messages. The Houston Chronicle does, but it's cost-prohibitive.

Charlotte said:
...who says only men can send flowers.
He would definitely kill me, because not only is he unromantic, he's a very private person.


I'm thinking, maybe it'd be worth it! Instead of flowers, I'm thinking a big balloon. If I don't post anything after Valentine's Day, you'll know what happened to me! Maybe the steak dinner, special dessert, sugar cookies, and some after-dinner activities will save me! helped me choose the winner, and I'd like to congratulate Charlotte from Life's a Charm! She will receive a $50 gift certificate to Tiny Prints (who I also must thank for offering the prize). Charlotte, please contact me with your snail mail info. Thanks!

  3. Congratulations Charlotte, enjoy your prize.

    Peter might be home this year so I will have to put my thinking cap on. Maybe I can alter a picture frame with a family photo in it so he can look at it on the ship.

  4. Congrats to Charlotte! Thanks for the fun contest-It got me thinking that I just might send my hubby a message again this year, it's been awhile & he would be surprised.
