Though I'm in marketing, I admit I truly am a marketer's dream. Valentine's Day is, by far, my favorite holiday. Sure Christmas and Thanksgiving are great, (who doesn't love an abundance of food and gifts and time with family?) but I've always loved V-day for so many reasons. Aisles upon aisles of pink and red and hearts and kisses...love in the air...romantic notes to your husband...an excuse to get all dressed up and treat yourself to a nice dinner...fresh flowers...sweet cards...a little wine (read: a lot of wine)...seriously...I love me some love.

You know why I also adore Valentine's Day? Because it's an understated holiday. No crazy fancy presents involved...no ridiculous dinners hosted at your house...just a day devoted to nothing but showering your significant other with hugs and kisses and sweet words and maybe even some chocolate.

Sure-I know good and well this is considered a "Hallmark holiday" but I'm a sucker for it every. single. year. Sue me.

Anyone who doesn't love Valentine's Day is a grinch in my book. ;)

Back to where I was going with this post...how about a little Valentine's decor DIY?! Per usual, this one is super simple. So simple, I'm not even going to provide you with instructions. Just decorate your lips in your favorite lipsticks, kiss a piece of paper (yes...I give you permission to make out with cardstock. Kidding. Don't make out with it. Things might get messy.), frame it and VOILA!

The best kind of projects, in my book, are the kind that don't require countless trips to the craft store to create something so simple. And it's for that very reason that this one stoled my heart. (Yes, I said "stoled".) I hope it does the same for you. :) 

P.S. - DON'T FORGET! Tomorrow is our "Photo An Hour" link up!!! Snap a picture every hour today and come back tomorrow to link up with us! (Read more here.)


  1. this is so friggin cute Steph haha and so cheap! i'm there. and can't wait to linkup tomorrow!

  2. I totally agree. Valentine's Day is my favorite. Even when I was single I would throw a party w/ all my single friends just to show some love! Love that project too. I might just have to add it to my collection.

  3. This is perfection.
    I was looking for something simple and sweet but not cheesy and THIS IS IT!
    Thank you thank you!
    (my bf is moving out of state 4 days before Vday and I will now insist that this frame be by his bed side!)

  4. Such a cute idea. And those letters that spell LOVE - oh my goodness love them!!

  5. Oh shoot I was wanting to do the photo and hour and totally forgot. Hopefully you will do it again one day and I can join in then - or maybe use your post as inspiration one day for it!

  6. So fun and so simple! I've always loved V Day. Even when I was single I loved it. I love love too :)

  7. What a cute idea! I, too, adore Valentine's Day. Flowers, candy, pink decorations - what's not to love??

  8. I love this idea!!!! Pinning it in case I don't get around to doing it this year
