I love Valentines day. And it is coming right up! Even when I celebrate as a singleton, I have so much love and happiness in my life.  In my personal life, I have a fantastic family and a great group of friends, whom I love and adore and who love and adore me. I am so grateful for every bit. I don't believe in limiting the celebration of Valentine's day to honoring only romantic love... Let's celebrate love of all kinds.

So on that note I want to celebrate all of you... because I love and appreciate you.  I love those of you who pay attention to my 140 character musings on Twitter.. or like The Cozy Project Facebook updates and photos. I love all of you who read my blog or favorite my items on Etsy. I feel loved and appreciated by all of you and I am grateful. To all who have given me a thumbs up in some big or small way since I have started this particular handmade adventure: THANK YOU! It has been amazing so far and you all make me feel pretty dang awesome.

So I am going to show my appreciation with two things..

First of all, a coupon code for my Etsy shop. Use IHEARTYOU  and you will get  free shipping. (Sorry, domestic only.) The coupon code will be active until February 14th!

And second a giveaway... and this is open to the whole world!  I would love for one of you to have this cute cozy that is sporting some adorable heart buttons.


In order to enter, please leave a comment on this post. (one comment only please.) If you want to retweet or like me on Facebook, that would be awesome, but it is not required. Comments will close the night of Saturday Feb 4th and on Sunday morning, I will use to select a winner. Please include your email address with your comment so that I can contact you if you are the winner!

Thanks so much for all the love!  And right back atcha my friends!

Happy day!

I got cancelled from my day job today... I am so excited I can't go back to sleep! It feels like getting a snow day or skipping class!

There are lists in my head of all the productive and fun things I could do with the ten hours that just became mine. I think my problem will be deciding which ones to choose!

What would you do today if you suddenly had free time?

I am pretty sure there will be some of this:

When I am working from home I like to listen to Pandora. My favorite station lately has been Gotye. I heard "Someone that I used to know" on the radio sometime this winter and added that station to my list. It is like that station was made for me and plays a lot of my favorite tunes...

Sunday (in the midst of a bit of internet "research") I finally watched the video for this song. It's amazing.

I love getting to know new bands. What are you listening to?

Happy January!

Who is all caught up from the chaos of the Holidays?

Not me!

With a busy holiday season on Etsy and four different family gatherings, plus New Years and some work and friend events at the beginning of this month, I am just starting to find time to get things organized and revamp my craft space and my shop.

I have a long weekend coming up... FOUR whole days free!! I am super excited for some pajama time and some productive time. I am in desperate need of organizing and purging and maybe even some crafty time and some in the kitchen time. It seems like a great time for baking if you ask me!

Hope you are are enjoying the  new year!!  2012 will be great I am sure!!
