Because I Love You...

Because it's almost Valentine's Day and because I love you guys AND because I have some of the best blog readers out there, I wanted to do something extra special for you. I have managed to get my little hands on a collection pack of each of the four new lines by BasicGrey just released at CHA Winter! AND...I want to give them away to you!

Photobucket

Yes, that's right! I'm giving them away before you can buy them in stores! And I need a good home for each of these collection packs. (Yes, that means there will be FOUR winners!!) So please leave me a little note here in the comment section with what you are doing for or love best about Valentine's Day and you'll be entered to win! Comments will be left open until Midnight (Eastern) Valentine's night!

Have a wonderful day!
xoxo,
k.

I'm going to make a nice little dinner and have a "at home date night" with the hubs!

Megan A. said...

My husband and I don't do Valentine's Day. We have always just agreed that EVERY day should be Valentine's day, and you should convey your love in frequent small ways rather than being pressured to do it on a certain day.

So, while I didn't really answer the question, I hope I can still be entered to win ;)

Cathy said...

I love to fix a special dinner for my family, including chocolate mousse for dessert!

Lauren Elizabeth said...

My husband and I always celebrate V-Day by making stuffed shells, what he made me for our first V-Day. It's delicious and it's nice to remember what it was like only two months into our relationship. :)

Kristie said...

You are awesome!!

My husband and I will celebrate our first married v-day with a quiet dinner at home :)

joel & ginny said...

I'm hoping to do some Valentine's themed baking--heart shaped sugar cookies and whoopie pies with pink icing. Those kits are beautiful!

LadyLiz said...

I am going to make a special dessert on Monday. But on Sunday we are going out for dinner. :)

Kathy (krolski) said...

My DH and I will probably go to dinner. And I've sent some V-day packages to family members. Thanks for the give away. I so hope I win! :) Also, I hope your kids are feeling better!

Sonya said...

Jury duty! Woot woot... and then dinner at home :)
Thanks for the chance to win! I *love* me some Basic Grey!

Cari said...

You're awesome girl!!
I love making Valetine's cards with my kiddos. They always have so much fun!

Katrina said...

oh fun!!!! Well, I will be working that day...and sending a valentine or two....my birthday is the 13th, so sometimes my birthday celebration continues!

Diana said...

We don't really celebrate Valentines Day either as everyday is Valentine's Day, but I think I will make a romantic pasta dinner with wine and cupcakes for dessert. My hubby is the romantic as he lights tea lights every night in our living room!

I Looovveee Basic Grey...thanks for the chance to win!

marcy said...

I'm taking my love's children to Taekwondo! ;)

Leesa said...

I am doing a very romantic dessert by candle light on Sunday night after our boys go to bed.

Thank you for offering this awesome giveaway! Happy Valentine's Day!

Ann Costen said...

We're going skiing as a family for Valentine's day :) Actually the homeschool field trip is coincidentally scheduled for that day so it wasn't intentional but it's still cool! Thanks for the chance to win, the collections are gorgeous as usual!

Tina said...

Because we live in a busy world and have full schedules sometimes we forget to tell our loved ones we love them. I love Valentine's Day because it's a day we stop what we are doing and just appreciate what we have.
Thank you for this chance to win and good luck to everyone!!!

Mernin said...

We don't generally celebrate Valentines day around here. But since my daughter joined us, it makes me want to do more. I am baking some cookies & a red velvet cake for the fam on Sunday...hopefully they will like it!

Rebecca said...

No valentine this year, so no valentine celebration! But, I almost always go buy a little heart full of chocolate for the day!

beckyjune said...

We are going to put hearts all over my husband's car- the girls keep asking if we can do it again this year. I'd love to win some free BG, too♥

Heather said...

My boyfriend and I are going to a nice dinner and a movie. And I'm going to be scrapbooking during the day :)

Mary Ann said...

My husband and I will be celebrating 33 years since he proposed!

Juanna Hope said...

my boyfriend and i will be doing a couple facial together before going for a nice dinner. facial his treat, dinner my treat (:

Kelly said...

Nothing serious. I'm showering my DH and boys with some chocolates! The boys are jazzed to give us a Valentine. too cute!

Mary said...

More than likely all of us will be spending the day together - maybe at the beach with all this nice weather CA is getting!

April said...

Oh how exciting!! For Valentine's Day, we're just planning on spending the together as a family! Thank you SO much for the chance to win. :)

For Valentine's, we're riding the Old Kentucky home dinner train out of Bardstown, KY. Looking forward to it!

Ashly said...

oops I had to delete my comment because I was so excited about the giveaway that I forgot to tell you about valentines day :) My hubby will be out of town so he already took me out to dinner and a movie. Sounds boring, but with two little ones its not something we get to do very often. He even lined up the sitter for me! Thanks for the amazing chance to win!

Me, Myself and I.... said...

hopefully the hubby and I can make it a date night on Saturday evening with dinner and a movie. Will have to wait and see :)

as for the kiddos...I will have something delivered to school on Monday...balloons, candy and itunes gift cards :)

greta said...

My husband and son and I are going out to dinner and exchanging little gifts and cards at a neighborhood Italian restaurant owned by a friend. A wonderful, casual evening with the loves of my life :) (Hubby and I are celebrating alone on the weekend!)

sillypea said...

I love that valentines day is a shameless excuse to give and get cute heart shaped boxes of chocolates and eat them without guilt... or at least less guilt. And I may try to convince the kids we need to go out and have Cherry cokes with a fun playful dinner of all things pink & red...

shelby valadez said...

Oh wow Kelly! I love that my husband always brings our girls flowers for Valentines Day :)

Kelly Swosinski said...

We love you too Kelly !! Thanks for the great giveaway ! No significant other for me this year, so I will be celebrating with friends !

Sarah Mullanix said...

Oh yay!!! I absolutely LOVE BG's new releases!! My favorite thing about Valentine's Day is just getting all three kids and my hubby and I to sit together for dinner and just enjoy being together!!! It's so hard to do that when there are sporting events, homework, and just life that seems to get in the way of good family time. My favorite little tradition that my mom started when I was young is that the kids get to wake up to a special little Vday gift, nothing big, but just something special to make them feel special!!! I always LOVED that so I do the same for my kiddos!! :) Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Donna Little said...

We will make and decorate some sugar cookies to share with the neighbors, and maybe the awesome police and fire department folks who have worked tirelessly during the crazy POLAR EXPRESS weather lately in Oklahoma.

Lythan said...

What a great giveaway! my husband will be leading a bereavement course that night for people who will find the day extra tough and then we will watch a film with the two kids still at home, enjoying the love we all share together!

Monica said...

I'm looking forward to our family valentine dinner on Sunday night and spoiling everyone with red & pink goodies! Thanks for the giveaway!

stephanie said...

I love seeing what unique "Valentine" my husband will make for me. One year he used bendable wire to make giant hearts along our hallway wall. <3

Amanda Dovey said...

I enjoy having an excuse to spoil my hubby [not that I need an excuse] but it's fun spoiling him and spending time alone with him!!

Lorrie said...

Not a lot of celebration on V-Day itself, but my husband bought me tickets to see Tom Jones (in April) for my V-Day gift so it's all good!

Michelle said...

I made my hubby a Valentine's card this year! How 'bout that! I don't usually make cards. I think we are going to just enjoy a quiet evening at home. I will make something nice for dinner and dessert. It is too expensive and way to busy to go out on Valentine's Day.

Wendy F said...

I love when my kids get home from school and they open all their valentines from their friends. It's fun to watch the expressions and excitement about each one. Oh, and the chocolate doesn't hurt either!

Shanna said...

I'm not doing anything special ON Valentine's but I've been doing a fun countdown to Cupid Day on my blog. Thanks for the chance to win girl! You're the best!

gabbyfek said...

making paper streamers for over the kiddos' doors with hearts and schmoopy-ness. :) i just love getting an excuse to love on my loves. that was a lot of love in one sentence! hee!
you are the sweetest and darlingest, miss kelly..
xoxo.

Shirley said...

Probably won't do anything. Love shouldn't be about ONE day in particular. But it would be nice to not have to cook dinner. LOL!

Susan said...

My hubby and I don't really "do" Valentine's day...we try to do loving things for each other all year long. I'm married to a wonderful man...and EVERY day he does so much for me - from cleaning to backrubs...I KNOW he loves me!

Katey said...

For V-Day we tend to make homemade fondu! Its a favorite!

I love love love love love Basic Gray and I hope I am one of the big winners! Thank you so much...please pick me!

Scrapthat said...

How "SWEET" are you!!
Cards...of course. Candy...of course, and a favorite dinner...of course. Probably a Framed photo collage as well. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Lauren said...

After a cozy dinner at an Italian restaurant, Justin and I plan to bake our very own chocolate souffles together!

Lisa said...

Awesome giveaway! I lost my Dad last year, so Hubby & I are driving up to take my Mom to dinner. Of course, flowers & chocolate will also be involved! :)

marilyn said...

My husband and I will go out to eat together.

SLUSH said...

We are heading home to FL for a quick visit and while we are there George thinks we will just be getting the usual boring rent a car, but I am going to splurge and get him his dream car (which he cannot have until our kiddo is older...lol) the Camero. Not telling him (which is gonnnnnnaaa be hard cause I suck at secrets) but letting him find out when he goes to the counter to get the car :)

Great new lines! Thanks for the chance to win one! :)

Nancy said...

My hubby and I will go out to eat and complete our annual tradition: pictures in the only old-school photo booth in town. Can't wait! Thanks for the chance to win. :)

Shelley said...

We will probably plan a special family dinner at home. I'm sure we'll either have chocolate fondue or homemade hot fudge sauce for dessert.

TracyDacy said...

I'm thinking of making cookies for my for my kids the day before and then picking up some yummy carry-out (maybe Chinese) and a bottle of wine on my way home from work on actual Valentine's day for me and my hubby.

Laura T. said...

Wow - beautiful new lines. I'm planning on making a Valentine's breakfast for dinner ... heart shaped pancakes, waffles with hearts, etc.

Jennifer Moore said...

We are taking our boys out to watch Gnomeo & Juliet and then out to eat. :)

Barbara said...

we are keeping up our tradition of going to the same nice restaurant for dinner, that we only go to on Valentines Day. A great dinner and share a special chocolate dessert, plus he has told me he thninks he has thought of a gift this year and occassion that he is going to be able to totally surprise me with, so anxious to see that. It would also be a great suprise to be one of the winners here of one of the great collections.

Connie said...

He brought me a heart Pandora charm yesterday!! That won't add inches to my back side:) Thanks for the chance to win!!

Kelley L said...

What I love best about Valentine's Day is that it is also my anniversary! I married my best friend and soulmate, 15 years ago on Valentine's Day! Even though this year he is traveling for work and will be gone on our anniversary, my heart is with him and his with me! (and to celebrate our 15 years, I sent him tickets to the Daytona 500 for him and our friend who put him to work after being laid off in our home state--the reason why he is not here!)

Amanda Gibson said...

I have a pretty special anniversary coming up tomorrow - so we're making it a Valentine's / Anniversary weekend and heading out of town! Yahoo!!

Karen said...

Thanks for the opportunity to win those fabulous paper packs!!!

My husband and I always have a fun and special dinner at home and then hunker down on the couch after the kids go to bed and watch a romantic movie!! Not sure what we will watch this year. But, my favorite part is just being with him - we have spent 21 Valentine's Days this way and this will be our 22nd!!!!

Heather said...

What I love about Valentine's Day? The heart candies and having my kids hand pick special ones just for me :)

Lynne said...

Growing up my mom always made a "red" dinner for Valentine's Day. I have continued the tradition. We have meatloaf with red ketchup, green beans (dyed red), mashed potatoes (dyed red), rolls with red butter and cake with red frosting. I may try a red velvet cake this year.

Stacy said...

I love Valentine's Day but I'm not a fan of waiting an hour for a table so we won't be going out for dinner. Instead I'm planning a family V-Day dinner & movie here at the house. It won't be romatic but it'll be fun & full of love so it works :) Happy V-day to you & yours.

onescraphappymomma said...

My husband and I don't exchange gifts on Valentine's day since our anniversary is the very next day and we feel that is a more important occasion. However, we do celebrate with a dinner at home with our daughter. And I always buy my daughter Valentine pj's!

Millie Pejakovich said...

This will be my DH's and my first Valentine's Day as a married couple, so you know this will be my most favorite Valentine's Day ever.

Along with all that, Valentine's Day is another wonderful opportunity to get creative with personal greeting cards and scrapbook layouts. I love the reds, pinks, blacks, prints and lace I'm collecting. All wonderful trims that would look great with a NEW BasicGrey Paper Pack !!! *grin*

stephanie said...

wow- what a super giveaway! what i love best about valentine's day... the decorations for sure- you can't go wrong with hearts everywhere :)

jeanie de la rama said...

what a giveaway!my husband and i will be staying in and having dinner at home, probably watch a movie.no grand plans.:)

Bethany said...

I "heart" BG....For V-Day I have sent out LOTS of valentines already...will be picking up a few goodies for my kids and hubby this weekend and Monday we are having a cheese fondue and a chocolate fondue. Plus a giant heart shaped cookie. :)

Happy Valentines Day, Kelly!

Jennifer Cowan said...

No plans here... with two little kiddos it will probably just be a regular night at home for us. Hopefully I can talk some grandparents into babysitting so we can get a night out soon.

Love all the new lines!

Arjanne said...

I'm going to a concert with hubby! Can't wait!

Becs Attwood said...

What a great give-away - you are such a sweetheart. I love Valentine's Day because it's the day before my birthday so lots of celebrating going on around here!

Fifi said...

My plans for Valentine's this year... give blood and give a lecture about the oil and gas chemistry.

My husband lives in a different city so we only get to see each other on weekends so we're having a nice meal and a movie on the 12th instead

ann said...

I hve sent my grandkids some goodies, and mailed cards to special friends. I usualy get chocolates and flowers. Thanks for the chance to win.

Addie said...

Awesome giveaway, thanks!
Valentines this year will include a b-day lunch for my Dad, probably chinese! And I have a tradition of getting big chocolate covered strawberries from a local restaurant for my hubby & son. They are so good!

Evelin said...

Thanks for the chance at a win! These are awesome!
We don't really celebrate Valentine's a lot over here but my hubby is taking me out for dinner this time & he's already made a booking which is really sweet :) Other times, we just spend it watching movies and spending time together :)

juliescrapbook said...

I would so love to win this. I LOVE BG.

Since V Day falls on a Monday, my sweetheart and I are meeting halfway between our two offices and treating ourselves to a longer lunch break. We are going to a Japanese restaurant in Chinatown where they only serve fondu. I can't wait.

Kristiina said...

We will have a nice dinner at home.

Kim said...

WOW!! You are just AWESOME!! TOO COOL! Valentines Day around here last a couple of days. Hubby's B-Day is the 12th so I show him "THE LOVE" for a couple of days! I always give him a handmade card for bday and Valentines. Of course, THEN, we spoil the grandkids with LOTS of chocolates and usually a balloon and a Stuffed animal! Thanks for the chance! Have a GREAT Day,
Me-Ma Kim

Deanna said...

What great giveaway! Thank you so much!

For V-day we do a special pink and red themed meal. Last year it was strawberry heart-shaped pancakes with pink syrup. Not sure what we'll do this year since it's on a Monday. Probably something fun for dinner. ;)

Suz said...

Just a quiet family dinner at home filled with love! :)

preci28 said...

Can't wait to see my friend's daughter who is 2 open her little present from me and for her little sister (5mo) to try on her dress from her He He!! Seeing kids open presents and be so happy are the best way to celebrate holidays!

Anya said...

Special dinner with a nice Russian cake for desert! (and by the way Hello Luscious is my favorite collection!)
Happy Valentine Kelly and your family!

Jane said...

Let's just say that a stump is more romantic than my husband!!! But luckily I'm romantic enough for the both of us!!! Yes...we celebrate Valentine's.

Jennifer boehme said...

Not quite sure we are doing anything different but as long as we are together that is special enough for me!

Jennie M said...

Wooohooo! We will be home hanging with the kids!

Cecilia Coleman said...

I LOVE Valentine's Day because my husband and I always sit down and look through our box. A cute box that has everything "us" in it. A lot of notes we passed to each other in high school, inside jokes, favorite cards and pictures, first date movie stub, etc. SO much fun to walk down memory lane. : )

Wendy said...

oh my gosh you have no idea how happy i am...my husband and i are going out for dinner for the first time in what seems like ages!!!!!!!!!!!

PattiM said...

We usually go out for lunch.. We've been known to drive to a restaurant on the way to Vegas in Bakers and then back home. Nice drive with the one you love and a great lunch!

Hugs,

PattiM

Kelly, Wow! You are so nice to have this wonderful giveaway!!! I would want to keep it for myself - LOL!

diana said...

Valentine's Day this year? Time spent with loved ones reflecting on loved ones who have recently passed on this year.

I have to say that Sweet Threads is my new BG fav! The colors, designs and scale - yum! Thanks for the chance to win a great giveaway. ;-)

How sweet of you to offer these to us. We don't usually do anything to fancy. I usually make a nice dinner for the family and we watch a movie together.

dlhfks said...

Making red velvet cupcakes for my teenage boys and their girlfriends.

Matilda said...

This year for Valentine's Day, I will be spending the evening with Bon Jovi. What better way to celebrate this special day than by attending a BJ concert and to have Jon sing love songs (to me) all night long? Can't wait!!

Janice said...

I love the fact that my daughter's birthday is on Valentines so that alone is why it's so special to me.

Tracy said...

I love V-Day ... I make my boys (my husband and my son) Valentine's coupons which they can use through the year ... I put things on like "just the two of us" or "I'll make your favourite meal" - It's loads of fun and they love it too ...

Love, Tracy G

Stephanie said...

For the last two years,I've created a 14 days of Valentines for my daughters. I create a tag, mini album page, tag, etc for them to open each day from 2/1 to 2/14. I've included fun facts, quotes, and coupons for them to use throughout the year.

carilackner said...

OOOOOhhhh! New basic grey paper!! My little one and I just finished decorating for Valentine's day with lots of hearts all over the house. I'm planning on surprising everyone with fondue after dinner on Monday! We'll be staying in to avoid the crowds and to enjoy each other!

Tammy said...

I'm loving the new BasicGrey, especially the Hello Luscious line! For Valentine's Day, I'm making frosted sugar cookies for my sweetie and our boys. It will be a two-day affair to mix up, cut out, bake and decorate sugar cookies, but it's my labor of love on their behalf, and I know they'll appreciate homeade cookies. :) Hope you and your crew have a fun Valentine's Day!

Melissa said...

My favorite part of Valentine's Day is all the cute gifts my kids bring me!

Thanks for the chance at this great giveaway!

Tami Mayberry said...

Probably not much. Valentine's Day pretty much goes by just like any other day in our house. Love the new BG lines!!

Cindy deRosier said...

Thanks for the chance to win! I love Lauderdale- such wonderful colors.

Valentine's Day plans: my son has a party at preschool, then we're headed to a friend's house for lunch and a party with his playgroup. Hopefully he'll nap after all that excitement! We'll do a special dinner and movie at home for the three of us.

Barb said...

I LOVED all the new releases from BG at CHA-W. But then again, I always love everything BG-related. :)

To answer your question, the best part of Valentine's Day is the chocolate. Yum!

Jen said...

I ♥ Basic Grey!!!

For Valentine's we're not doing anything special - I started going back to school so I have an exam - fun, right?! ;) But I think we'll have a special family dinner on Sunday - because it's not just my hubby I love, it's my whole family. :)

MClark said...

I'm going to make my husband a bread pudding because it's his favorite!

Theresa said...

what i love most is the single red rose my hubby gives me every year. i have all of them dried and saved for the past 22 years.

thanks for the chance to win!

Amy Garigan said...

I love making Valentine's and being with the ones I love.

Tracy said...

I LOVE making Valentine cards for my family & friends! They seem to truly appreciate them too. I can also tell you I would definitely appreciate one of the BG paper packs! So far I like the Sweet Threads the best (even though I have an 11 year old boy to scrapbook)! THANK YOU SO MUCH for a chance to win!

Christine said...

I love picking out & making Valentines for my kids to hand out at school...and then surprising them with their own little valentine's love! :)

The best I do for Vday is have a party for my daughter and her friends and cousins. I started this tradition when she turned 4 and she is now 13. I hope to continue until 18 or longer if she'll let me! We have a great time exchanging valentines, making crafts and playing games!! Thank you for the chance to win some amazing goodies!!

Leah said...

I'll be at work on valentines - fun right!? lol
lovin' the new papers :)

Mel said...

Wow, how generous are you! My husband and I are planning on a little "carpet picnic" for Valentine's Day. That way we can be together, light candles, eat some good food, and avoid the crowds at every restaurant on that night. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

Lynsey Nolan said...

My husband and I have been married f or 32 years and will will be doing a movie and dinner.

BoxerBrats said...

Valentine's Day is a biggie in our household. We were married on Valentine's Day :) Super romantic, huh??

I love making Valentine's for all of our family and friends. I bake cookies and goodies to give out, and hubby always "surprises" me with flowers and candy.

We either make reservations to go out, or we have a wonderful dinner at home. It doesn't matter, we just spend time together. This year maybe a movie night out :)

Anyway, thank you so much for chance win :) What a wonderful Valentine's Day/Anniversary present it would be!

Valentine's Day gives me the chance to tell those I love that I love them one more time. I enjoy making something special for my children and grandchildren - they like that, too.

ScrappinSassy said...

I'll be getting my cards made hopefully tonight (or tomorrow afternoon at the latest). I'm going to surprise my husband with a 90 minute deep tissue massage at his favorite spa and a dinner at a nice steakhouse. I can't wait!! :)

We love you too!!!

My favorite thing about Valentine's Day it to help my daughter with her cards-- she and I both love making them!

mstephensjr said...

I will be spending most of my Valentine's Day in an out patient surgery center waiting for my 6 year old daughter to have her belly scoped to find out why she is having so many belly aches. I couldn't think of a better pick me up than to win one of these amazing collection packs after being completely stressed out with worry all day long!

sandra m. said...

I will be making some fun cupcakes with my kiddos! BG is awesome, thanks for sharing some love with us.

Kristin Hayne said...

I adore the handmade gifts that my boys make me each year.... there is just something about it that makes me feel so loved and special!!

Laura - The Stampin' Soldier said...

I'll be thinking about my hubby over in Afghanistan. Boohoo!

Kelly said...

Valentines Day will be spent with my students (love), then taking my boys over to my parents (love), then off to dinner at Stir Crazy with my hubby (love), followed by shopping for new bed lines (love)! :)

just me and z said...

I will be taking my 4-year-old daughter on a date with me. We are always together on V-day, and love spending the evening with her. We might bake cookies, we might watch movies, we might read books and we might play ponies. Who knows. I just know that I am going to love snuggling with my little ladybug and giving her all of my kisses. xoxo

Paula said...

We are going to cook steaks on the grill - YUM!

BabyBokChoy said...

What a treat this is!!! Lemme see... I gave birth 7 years ago on Valentine's Day... since then, every Valentine's Day is about someone's birthday, lol... We are decorating the house tomorrow and going out to eat at Cheesecake factory on Tuesday (to avoid V day crowd) and going to an indoor water park on March 17 (LOL, you read that right) to celebrate, lol.

Scrappy Jean said...

I am going to an event with my husband at a local museum--we are going to study sculptured hearts and then make a heart for each other. Chocolates are included.

Ruth said...

This year I decided to make some extra valentines day cards, for my brother to give my sister in law, my BIL to give my sister, for my dad and my FIL to give away to the Mums, my favourite women deserve a beautiful handmade card, so I am making extras and sharing the love, because that makes me happy.

Janie said...

I was hoping my hubby would plan something special since he's home and I work.......
What I am doing is baking a few new recipes I've found on all these wonderful blogs I follow.
That is a very generous giveaway, thanks!

Diane said...

Hubby & I think everyday is a day to celebrate our love, but I will be making a special dessert at a treat - of course in red. Love me some Basic Grey!!

Penny B. said...

Thanks for the giveaway Kelly!!

I am not sure what I'm going to do for my hubby yet (EEK!) but I'm thinking a batch of chocolate chip cookies and heart-shaped balloons. :o)

Brenda said...

We don't really celebrate Valentines much. I am not very big on going out and fighting the crowds in the restaurants. My hubby is so wonderful showing me every day how much he loves me in the little things does for me. I am very spoied by him. I do love to make casds for him and my son. And I usually make a desert, thought I haven't figure out what this year probably something chocolate. Thank you for the chance to win some Fab Basic Grey.

toniw said...

I love having a nice extra special dinner with my hubby! Probably making some heart shaped pancakes and sandwiches for the kiddo too!

Karen said...

I am going to bake a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese frosting and take it to work for all my coworker Valentine's. Love surprising my girls with sweets. Fabulous new collections, I could do some serious cardmaking with these.

ArlaMo said...

We will go out for dinner. Then I will go to my Church and join my quilting group at church.

i love that my hubby and i do 'unvalentines' day.....we just do what we'd normally do because we figure we love eachother everyday. we just focus on our anniversary more than 2/14. thanks for the chance to win!

Amanda Sevall said...

We're going out to dinner the night before and enjoying a normal work day for Valentine's this year!

Love the new collections, thanks for giving us all a chance to win one!! :)

Smitha said...

Hubby, me and baby are down with cold and fever.. If we get well before Valentine days, that would call for a celebration :)

Lisa L said...

making valentines treats and cards with the kids. my hubby will be working V-day so we'll have to have a date night other night.

Thanks for the chance to win -- I just love the new collection line!

Heather Innusa said...

Awesome giveaway! Basic Grey...sigh! I'm loving that Lauderdale ( I live in ft. Lauderdale, fl & it rings true) such lush colors. They're all amazing!

What I love nowadays about valentines day is making v-day crafts with & for my kids & their classes & I'm excited for them to get their little valentines. I remember that being fun when I was in elementary school!

Lara Hodges said...

My husband is going to be out of town, so my girlfriends and I are going to "The Pioneer Woman's" book signing :) I am so looking forward to it - and my husband & I will celebrate with a nice dinner upon his return!

Mindy said...

We will go to our favorite restaurant in Downtown Petersburg! Love it Alexander's and use any excuse, especially Valentines Day to go!

Abby said...

Just like the last several years, I'll be snuggling with my son on Valentine's day. We usually curl up on the couch together and watch movies all evening. That's right where I want to be, my son has my heart :)

Thanks sooo much!

-Abby

AllyW said...

Well my son has baseball practice so we won't probably do too much on the 14th. Our anniversary was Feb.1st so on the 19th we have nothing planned and no sports events to attend so we will be going out to dinner...by ourselves...no kids...to a restaurant that doesn't have crayons or childrens menues!! Hahaha. Have a great Valentines day yourself :)

Belinda said...

I love the tradition our family has for each of us to make home made cards to give to one another. I scrap them all [of course! :)]!!

stamperchic said...

We will share some quiet time and discuss the things we love about each other, the way we met and how to keep things exciting....... It's tradition for us to do this every at this time.

Deena Hopkins said...

No special plans for Valentines Day- probably just a night at home with my husband, which is the best way to spend any day!

milkcan said...

Planning to get snuggly on the couch with a good movie and my husband!

Cynthia B. said...

For me, one of the best things about Valentine's Day is an excuse to eat chocolate. :)
My hubby and I don't really have plans together - my son has a soccer tourney this coming weekend, and since 2/14 falls on a Monday, we'll likely just go to my daughter's Valentine's party at school and enjoy some family time that night.

Thanks so much for the chance to win some of the new BG!! They're awesome, and so are you!!

Kelly said...

Dinner and a movie! We never get out, so I can't wait!

MNJackson said...

Valentines Day....ahhh the love, the romance...and fondue :)
This year I am planning a very special meal where everyone will get to prepare their own delicate and exciting plate. I will have all the goodies to do a full dinner and then chocolate fondue for dessert....isn't life grand <3
<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 Happy Valentines to you and yours <3

Marisa said...

With 2 of our kids having birthdays this weekend I think we will be happy to just have a minute to relax come
Monday! Maybe we will watch a show from the DVR... it doesn't matter to me, as long as I can have a minute with my husband!

PS I love all the BG lines but Sweet Threads is AWESOME! And I'm totally buying the core'dinations too!

Martine Labelle said...

I'm a 2nd grade teacher, so I love getting all the sweet cards and hearts (and chocolates!) from my students!

Jennifer said...

A nice dinner out and then a visit to the local bookstore for us! Thanks for the chance.

mnms said...

I'll be making cake balls for my daughters to take to school. I also have some large fabric envelopes (from a Sweetwater kit)I made to hang on their chairs and fill with fun goodies.

Tracey said...

Hubby and I are not the big romantic types but I am making Valentines for my little girl to take to her friends at school.

Thanks for the chance to win one of these collections! Love them!!

Sue said...

Love anything BG! We don't really celebrate Valentine's Day. It's just too commercial. But we do sneak in little cards. :)

Sandi said...

I am spending WAY too much time on a mini-album for my wonderful husband but I am loving how it is turning out and I cannot wait to give it to him. We will just be spending a quiet weekend together with a romantic dinner on Sunday since Monday is a work day.

Patti said...

I do "14 days of Valentines" every year for my husband...so every day from Feb. 1-14, he finds a little present with a cute handmade tag and a different message each day about why I love him. I'm no sure who enjoys it more, me or him. It is sooo fun!

Shawninaz said...

What an amazing giveaway, yay!!! My daughter and I are all set to create some beautiful decorated heart sugar cookies for all of those we love. I have all our tools and decorations on the counter set for the weekend. Can't wait to create!

carriegel said...

I don't know what I'm doing for Valentine's Day. That's too far away to think about.

Linda H. said...

Hubby and I are both working on getting back in shape so I ordered a fruit arrangement from Edible Arrangements for him. (And I'll be happy to help him eat it!) No candy for us this year.

Lindsey said...

I look forward to eating popcorn and watching a romantic comedy with my sweetie valentine's day.

Tricia Gray said...

My boys and I have a silly tradition of making Valentine cupcakes in heart shaped cupcake holders. It is just a little thing that makes me so happy!

Leah Killian said...

My husband is US Air Force, and he is super busy that day (the war is ruining my love life!), so I will not be doing much that is romantic. I think I'll spend some time scrapbooking while the kids are in school :-)

Natalie Elphinstone said...

Well I'll be working night duty, so will barely be awake long enough during the day to do anything with my husband. Instead I'll be spending the evening with labouring women. Romantic huh? *LOL* :-)

carmen perez said...

OMG, this is a gorgeous collection. me likey!!

J.Chin said...

Prepare 65 V-day cards between 2 kids' classes. Hand out 33 sets of 5 cards to terrific teachers(do the math). And finally, have a Valentine's breakfast with my hubby, while the kids are at school. I'm gonna need more paper!

Anne Hall said...

All 4 new collections look great. Thank you for the chance to win. Dh and I have a date night on Saturday. Still planning, not sure what we're doing yet

Patricia M. said...

The hubs and I usually go out to dinner on V-day. Not sure where were going this year or what he has planned :) This is the first year that my kids understand V-day a bit better, so we're gonna do a little scavenger hunt for them. Can't wait to see their little faces. I just love the day of love :)

Melanie Stanczyk said...

Valentine's is a special day for our family because of 2 things...1) it's the day my Dh and I got engaged and 2)it's the day my youngest child, Kaden was born-he'll be 7 this year! So, for the last 7 years we celebrate the day with cake, ice-cream and presents!

Rhonda V. said...

I'll probably make a fun card for my hubby! I also plan to create the handmade valentine's for our son's preschool and toddler class at daycare. Wish me luck!!!

With two busy little guys, we don't really worry about Valentine's Day, they are our little permanent Valentine's anyhow. : )

Thank you for the fun giveaway!!!

Laurie L. said...

We love to just hang out together as a family and make something for dinner and of course something sweet for dessert! Thanks for the chance to win...love Basic Grey!

Jennifer said...

I usually make a special dinner for the family and have small treats for our 3 children.

Anonymous said...

What i love best about VDay is my husband of 22 1/2 years goes to the same Family owned Chocolate shop to get my candy that he went to for the last 24 years! (that includes the dating year;)ahhh..

Sarah said...

Great giveaways! My Valentine's plans are to take my kids to a Valentine's party with our homeschool group... and hopefully make my man some brownies. :) Thanks for the chance!

Ellie A. said...

I am super excited as Monday is my Hubby's day off and so we while our boys are in school we are going to head to IHOP w/our little girl for some Heart shaped pancakes & enjoy our day until the boys get home when we will head out for some Valentine Sundaes at Fridays. I say it will be pure Lovely Bliss!

Peggy said...

I'm actually staying HOME this Valentine's Day with the dear hubby. Because of some of his health issues (which he said it wouldn't matter after I told him I was staying home), I canceled out on the USAH/Labatt pond hockey nationals in Eagle River this weekend. I think he was totally surprised & 1st words were "you could have gone; you'd be home on Valentine's Day." But it just seemed with everything going on, that this year was the time to stay home. I'll live vicariously thru all my friend's FB posts and pictures they send & go next year :) and spend this Valentine's weekend with him.

Frozenstamper said...

Making a "red themed" dinner for my husband and watching a movie together. Awesome Blog gift!

ShellyJ said...

My favorite thing about Vday is all the fun little crafts I do with my kiddies :)

Karlyn said...

Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to buy chocolate in bulk! It's my favorite part of the holiday. That and telling my family how much I love them.

Laura K. said...

We have both been ill so Valentines day will be a day spent together enjoying our time together. If well enough we will enjoy dinner out at our favorite place.
