A Time for Love...Better Homes and Gardens February 2009 Issue

Now that we have a young and loving couple in the Whitehouse, it is time for us all to think about the love in our own lives!

What better way than to check out my gift giving tips in the new Better Homes and Gardens February issue. Valentines is right around the corner, and I along with the talented editors from Better Homes and Gardens, have come up with some really easy and clever gifts for your loved ones.

The Cover story is easy and fun and affordable. Just take store bought cupcakes, insert them into another paper holder of a different color and top with hand sprinkled Xs and Os from a package of ready made cookie letters available at "Trader Joes", place on a cake plate, ours is from "Homegoods" and voila, you have an easy, clever and affordable gift!

Look for more budget minded clever ideas in upcoming issues.
