So, Thursday was Valentines Day, and Thomas and I celebrated our first as a married couple by going for brunch at Yolk, and checking out this sweet new non-profit bookstore in our area that supports literacy programs. We had a lovely day, and I was glad to share it with my best friend.
Because Valentines Day has been turned into something pink and fluffy aimed towards girls, I thought I'd man-up Tom's gift with some DIY wrapping paper.
I carved an eraser into a mustache stamp, and transformed some classy floral paper into wrapping paper fit for a gentleman:
"Valentine Fit for a Gentleman" was actually my theme for the gift, and I substituted the usual chocolates for beef jerky and Altoids, and other manly things.
I made the card using some awesome free fonts featured on this cute little blog, and played around with my watercolor pencils.
Thomas did the whole shebang with flowers, chocolate, and a beautiful day together. I hope you all enjoyed Valentines Day (or the 50% off valentines chocolate the day afterward).
