2016 Presidential Valentines

This is my 7th year designing valentines! Which means I have one more year before I'm kicked out of valentine office and someone else takes over.

Here's a recap if you're new to this lovely tradition that won't seem to die:

2010 Lost
2011 Jimmer
2012 Harry Potter pt 1 and Harry Potter pt 2
2013 Hunger Games
2014 Downton Abbey
2015 Taylor Swift

This year an obvious theme emerged, (even though it's a slight detour from the usjh valentines of entertainment's past). And since it's the first day of February AND the day of the Iowa Caucus(es) (Cauci?), I proudly present to my fellow citizens your 2016 Presidential Valentines!

And for whatever reason if you feel like these would be a yuge hit with your 8 friends or coworkers, click here to download a printable pdf.

Top Celebrity Guest Predictions for Taylor Swift's Utah Show

I would think by this point that everyone attending Taylor Swift's 1989 World Tour has compiled a wish list of guest stars they'd like to see perform live with her. Obviously I've done this, and let me be not sarcastic that Sting and JT are more or less my entire list (with Tupac and Frank Sinatra rounding out the "cyrogenically-frozen-but-great-time-for-a-comeback" category).

But I've been thinking. 

There aren't very many celebs in our beloved beehive state. Sure, Nick Lachey had Cafe Rio that one time. And Kimye either likes to ski here or skis in-studio somewhere in Calabasas that looks exactly like Park City to throw everybody off their trail.

I can think of plenty of people who would try to get Taylor in their doTERRA down-line while she's here but I can't think who, if anyone, would be a surprise guest at Taylor's Salt Lake show. 

Until now! 

Here are what I can only assume will be Taylor's Salt Lake City special guests based on basic Utah knowledge...

9. Bachelorette Alum: Jef (with one f)
I think they'd be buddies because Swift also has one f.

8. Christmas Composer & Maestro: Kurt Bestor
Give the people what they want! (Hint: It's a Prayer of the Children duet!)

7. Beloved Candy Bomber: Gail Halvorsen
But srsly, candy parachutes falling from the ESA rafters? Genius.

6. Waffle Love Truck
For when Mr. Halvorsen runs out of candy...

5. Jimmer Fredette
He's a Spur now so Tay can probably just announce him a future 5-time NBA champion...

4. Sundance Kid: Robert Redford (with special guests: Mormon Tabernacle Choir)
Can't you picture him belting Out of the Woods with some sweet shots of Sundance zooming by on the big screen? Or maybe a little Battle Hymn of the Republic with the choir?

3. Dancing With the Houghs Stars: Julianne and Derek Hough
So they can dance to her beat forevermore.

2. Former Presidential Nominee: Mitt Romney
Is it just me or is this one an actual possibility? Does he tickle the ivories? Hope so.

1. Jazz's Bear and Mascot Hall of Famer: Jazz Bear
He looks more suggestive here than I'd like but I work with what I have. Can't you see him playing pranks on all her dancers? Hilarity ensues! But I wonder if he gets along with Jimmer. (He knows what he did!)

Basically I can't wait to see if there is anyone cool enough to visit our great state or if she'll pull from local talent. 8 days! See you there, Utahns.

Taylor Swift Valentines

Well well well. Here we go again. As you can see, I haven't blogged since last years Downton Abbey Valentines. So now that valentines are literally the only thing keeping this blog a blog, let's just get right to it shall we? ... I love her. You love her. I just couldn't not this year...

Introducing your 2015 Taylor Swift Valentines!!!  The goal this year is a lofty one: I'd like Taylor* to actually pass these out to friends and/or family members. See? Lofty.

** Not to be confused with my husband Taylor, who will probably not give these to his friends or family. But he totally should. 

To download a printable of all of them, you can get it here. But don't forget to attach candy to them or people will be SO sad and they'll blame me for it and that's not fair. 



Downton Abbey Valentines

Check out this year's Taylor Swift Valentines too!


Time to toot my own Valentine horn: this is my FIFTH year making Valentines for the internet people. I've come a long way from designing Lost Valentines from my bed in Texas to designing Downton Abbey Valentines from my bed in Utah (1,000 miles to be exact). I hope you realize that I can't top these every year and at a certain point (4 years ago), they will start to decline in hilarity.

With that disclaimer in mind, here we go! Your 2014 Downton Abbey Valentines.

Head over to Cobalt & Dash for a printable version!

2013 Oscars Bingo Cards

Who needs super impractical Oscar bingo cards?!

Okay, so maybe these aren't the best to "print out" or "actually use" but this is 2013! Oscar party-watching of the future. Invite your 8 rich friends over, have them bring their iPads, and pull these bad boys up on screen! Then you can use some sort of gummy snack (g-bears, peach rings, etc.) as game pieces, because they'll stick real good to the screen. See? Problem-solver.

 Happy 2103 Oscar watching! Sidenote: I don't know if winning is actually possible. Cheers!
