To elicit a smile or two from your loved one on Valentines's day (or any day for that matter) try writing sweet little messages on post-its and leave them in unexpected locations for your partner to find. Places to hide them include- on your partner's pillow, on the bathroom mirror, on top of your partner's laptop or on the fridge door. Hopefully it will brighten up their day!
To dress up your notes a little, try using alphabet stamps in combination with a variety of bright and fun ink colours to create your messages.
I'm completely smitten with the 'Duncan' alphabet stamp set from 7321Design. The set is described as "DIY" which basically means you have to attach the rubber stamps to their plastic handles. It takes a bit of time to set up but it's well worth it for such beautiful lettering.
There's a bunch of other cute stamp sets in the DIY range also.
Melbournites who want to pick up this stamp set locally should try Handworks on Chapel St. in Prahran.
