Valentine Ideas Contest 2009
Our Valentine Ideas contest for 2009 is over and the winners have been chosen!
If you take a few minutes to browse through the entries, you'll understand what a difficult job it was to choose the best. I'm SO GLAD that I handed the responsibility over to some friends for judging so I could be impartial.
Special thanks to Rose, Carmel, and Kate for their time and effort in deliberating and choosing the winning ideas for Valentines Day.
I'd also like to thank every single person who took the time to enter. I really enjoyed reading your creative ideas for Valentines Day, and will definitely be using some of them myself throughout the year.
Even though the contest is over, you can still share your own Valentine ideas. We'll never have too many creative recipes or gift ideas to treat our friends and loved ones extra special all year round.
