Floral Swag Foldover Note Cards Floating Hearts Foil-Pressed Foldover Note Cards with Lined Envelopes Love Struck Stationery in Acrylic Holder

February is the month of love and a perfect time to write more love notes! You can really make someone’s day with a few simple sentences expressing your feelings. And for the perfect canvas, pick up a great box of personalized stationery. Whether you are writing a little note to your husband, boyfriend, your son or daughter or your best friend, it’s really easier than you think. And they’ll love to save them and re-read them over the years. It’s not about perfection in letter writing, it’s about sharing a feeling, a memory, a dream.

So what that many others are writing electronically. Those come and go. Putting pen to paper is long lasting. It’s really ok to write a real note! You can mail it or give it in person, leave it on a desk in a place they will find it, pack it in a lunch, or pop it in the refrigerator so they will see it in the morning. No matter what you say, you won’t go wrong. It can be long or short, funny or serious, romantic or casual. What’s most important is that it is in your own words and it sounds like you. Be yourself!

February is a wonderful time to reconnect after the holidays. Plan a special dinner date, a lunch or a breakfast. Enjoy the company of those you love and those you want to get to know better. With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s time to get planning, and it’s time to get writing! Maybe give your special love a box of stationery so they can write you back!

Happy love letter writing to you!

Best wishes,

Renee

Sweet Valentine’s Day Cookie Recipe

27 Jan

As Valentine’s Day gets closer, I have been gathering cute ideas for my kids classroom parties on Pinterest.  The ideas you can find on there are really amazing!  I also love to bake, so I was thinking of a cute cookie to make for teachers and friends.  A friend at work always raves about my cranberry and white chocolate shortbread cookies so I thought, why not make those?  They have the beautiful red and white colors for Valentine’s Day and everyone loves them!  I originally got this recipe from the Kraft website, but here it is for you to make:

Cranberry and White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients:

2 cups  (4 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup  sugar
4 cups  flour
1 package white chocolate chips
1-1/2 cups  dried cranberries (I use craisins)

HEAT oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add flour; mix well. Stir in chocolate and cranberries.

DROP rounded tablespoons of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets; flatten slightly.

BAKE 10 to 14 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Once you have your cookies made up, why not gift them in some really pretty packaging?  I love our personalized cookie boxes.  They are adorable and perfect for gifting your baked goods.  I also love to use plastic containers wrapped with red and white twine.  You can add your personal note on top!
