Guest Post: Creative Ways to say {I Love You} by Live.Laugh.Rowe

Hello friends! My name is Kelly of live.laugh.rowe. I'm currently a stay at home wife. I stay busy blogging, crafting, cleaning and taking care of my boys...my husband and my two furry friends {smile}.

I'm tickled silly to be guest blogging here today. With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, we have so many options as to how we can express our love. Hopefully, we're all expressing our love for our family and friends everyday -- but, Valentine's Day is one of the special days where you can go about it a little more creatively, passionately and excitably {yay}! So, how do you go about doing that each year? Do you buy a box of chocolates? Send a card? Or maybe you just make a phone call to say, "I love you." I thought I'd share some creative ways you might say those three special words this year.

Desiree over at The 36th Avenue came up with ingenious idea -- and what a great way to say those three special words of I love you all year long. Leave little notes of admiration, love, and encouragement. See her tutorial here.

{I Love You Cards}
I saw these featured in a magazine a couple of years ago and thought they were pretty cool. I purchased a pack and leave them laying around the house, in my husbands car, lunches, etc. I've often thrown one in a card to a friend too. Something small and thoughtful that makes that friend, spouse, or child know that someone, somewhere loves them. For $5.00 you get 20 hot pink cards. Well worth it!

{Duty Free Coupons}
One year for a creative gift I gave my husband a half dozen Duty Free cards. They could be redeemed whenever he wanted to pass on his daily duties or weekly chores (whatever the case may be) -- taking the garbage out, cleaning the dishes, recycling, picking up after the dogs, etc. I've attached a sheet that is downloadable for you to use. These are great for your husband, wife, or kids. The sky is the limit. It's creatively FUN! p.s. Ladies, my husband {loved} these! You could even design your own. I personally liked the minimalist approach, plus men aren't that picky. Print on a piece of white or colored card-stock paper, cut and gift. Super easy! Download my version here.

{Frame this I Corinthians 13 Printable}
This is something I put together and will be printing a few as Valentine's Cards. I thought I would share it with you. It's sized to print as a 5x7. Print and frame it or have it printed on a card. Gift some inspirational love. Download this printable here.

So there we have a few inexpensive ways to say I love you this year. Now, to spread even more love, I'm going to give away a $10 store credit to my little Etsy shop, called House 129. Right now, it's more or less little expressions of crafty love with owls, birds, etc. I have so much more I want to add, but time seems to keep getting away from me. Anywho, check out the Valentine's Day aisle, you might see a little something to gift this year.
