that holiday with big red hearts, fluffy clouds and cupids is t-minus less than a month away.

and that is why you do not have to look any further for what to get your honey bunches of oats (yes, i went there)! 'cause you see, i have a friend on the other side of blog world who resides in  California named Julie Ann and has the world's coolest handmade card shop ever. i'm sure you've heard of it - it's been exploding and blowing up mailboxes since she opened up. Julie Ann Art is my go-to place for Christmas and Valentine's Day cards. like i said, her cards are the real deal.

so  if you visit her shop, you will know exactly what i am talking about. these cards are not your typical mushy, gushy cards. they are witty, mushy, raw, tear-jerking, hilarious, and just darn right cute.

this one makes me snort.
this makes me say aaawwww. 
this makes me giggle.
this makes me warm and fuzzy.

  6. I just ordered one of her cards for me and boyfriend's 1st anniversary. It's still in the mail but I can't wait to get it. It was a toss up between the one I got (you're my favorite thing to do :p) and the first one you posted, about poop.

  7. You are adorable, and I NEED some of those cards!

  8. Debe tener en cuenta que no todos los bolsos baratos disponibles en el mercado están hechos con material de la mejor calidad. Ciertos fabricantes se comprometen con la calidad de los productos, para ofrecerlos a precios bajos. (etiquetas: Bolsos Michael Kors,Bolsos Michael Kors Baratos,Bolsos Michael Kors Outlet)

    Dessa grossister kommer också att erbjuda dig ett brett utbud av alternativ att välja mellan, med avseende på färg, storlek, material och design. Dessutom kan du även få dem skräddarsydda, genom att komma med en handväskedesign på egen hand. (Taggar: Väska Michael Kors,MK Väska,Michael Kors Rea)
