[color kreyv]: Light Pink

I LOVE me a nice, soft pink. I think it's a lot more versatile than some people may think. I mean, let's be honest, pink kind of has a personality of belonging in a little girl's room, but I think it can go anywhere. I'll tell you why. First of all, I love it paired with more masculine hues like navies, dark grays, and even blacks. Second of all, a little bit can go a long way. Just adding light pink in a piece of art, a throw, or a pillow can sometimes be enough. Third of all, it's subtle and calming, and it's just awesome, so you should just add some to your home. I know what you're thinking:  I should have gone into law.

Staircase Obsession

I'm not going to reference Stairway(s) to Heaven on this post (which was way before my time, by the way) , but I'll be honest, I was thinking it. I mean, honestly, these staircases...pure obsession here, aaaand a little bit of disappointment that mine are not going to look remotely like any of these. World wide web, why do you do this to me?  You with all of your beautiful pictures and things to buy. Sigh*. I mean, in your defense, you were helpful when I wanted to look up the artist and year of Stairway to Heaven, I will give you that, but who cares about that when there are so many pretty pictures to look at? Not me.

[in five]: Favorite Teacher Valentines

I just posted ideas for Valentines, but then, I thought to myself, "Self, what about the teachers? After all, they are some of the most important people in the world." So, I went to my trusty Pinterest, and this is what I came up with. I chose the hearts for Stella's teachers, because I think the saying is the sweetest thing ever, but I really love all of the ideas.  Direct links are included under each picture.

[in five]: Favorite Valentines + Printables

I love that I can go on Pinterest and find Valentines for Stella. And, as an added bonus, a lot of them have free printable, too. (Bless you creative mommas who are willing to share your creations!) On the other hand, I've realized that since Pinterest has come along, I'm about the least creative person ever. Oh well, not creating my own Valentines, gave me the opportunity to stay up until 1:00 am every night stressing out about bathroom light fixtures. See? Much better use of time! Check out these adorable Valentines. I have linked them all back to the original posts--most offer the printables.
