three things on a thursday (one of them being a Valentine’s Day giveaway!)

Update on 1/31/11:

According to random.org, the winner of the Pear Tree Greetings Kids V-day cards is comment number 45, Nicole P.

Congrats, Nicole! I will be emailing you shortly.


Hey, remember how I was going to blog yesterday (and on Monday) and how I actually had a full calendar of posts lined up for this week but instead I have been taking naps and reading (books, as in, not on the interwebs)?

It has been awesome.

But now I’m “behind”… although I refuse to believe that there is such a thing in blogland because really, this shouldn’t be a burden, just a community and a place to hang out. So, if it were possible to be behind on blogging, I would be (but it’s not so I’m not).

I’m glad we cleared that up.

I said I have three things for this post, and I do.


These roses are on my dining room table right now. They feed my Janu-weary soul.

The three comments left on the 3rd bloggy birthday post that win a little hand knit love (and some tea) from me are…


Yay! I will email you three shortly so I can get these in the mail!


More happiness to giveaway! This time, it is a set of 24 adorable Kids Valentine’s Day cards from Pear Tree Greetings!

(Hello, cutest Vday cards I have ever seen!)

Can’t you just see these being put into shoe boxes in your kiddo’s classroom?

I think this design might be my favorite – it’s a coloring page!

O for cute! I want to order these for me and go put them in mailboxes around my neighborhood to make people smile… except, you know, ones with my name on it and not Amber Jacobs’.

This one comes in a very, very close second to the owl:

It makes me grin all goofy-like. Also, where were these when I was handing out Care-Bears perforated valentines in kindergarten? That’s what I want to know.

Alright, who’s ready to win?
