Every year Valentine’s Day comes around and every year I go through this whole obligation theory in my head about how the whole thing doesn’t really mean anything. I seem to always throw something together somewhat last minute… as most guys do. However, once I’m actually out and with Anna I realize that it’s not the “Valentine’s date” the means something, it’s the time spent together that celebrates our relationship.

So to partner along side the sweet love birds out there, Three Pennies thought of some ways that may not be the most glamorous ideas but they are all based in the concept of doing something for your loved one that has true meaning: 1. You can schedule a Three Pennies couple’s photo session that will capture you two in a very candid and authentic way. 2. Have silhouettes made of you and a loved one to either frame or have as stand-out wall pieces. 3. You can simply print off our collection of free card designs and write something thoughtful.

Feeling extra loving? Use several of these design cards to write notes and send off to your mom, your friends, or even your children. Actual cards with handwritten notes are becoming too rare, make this Valentine’s Day special for everyone.

Scan through all of our choices and find one that works for you! Remember these prices are exclusively for our Valentine’s Promo. Each packet has great savings…so don’t miss out!

My day was brightened when a special package came in the mail today…our personal stand-out silhouettes! Philip and I couldn’t resist having our own for our home. We decided it would be great to get them printed so we could see how good they look and also see if it’s something we would want to offer as a product. Hands down…no doubt…we want you guys to be able to have these sweet additions to your home decor too. We were really pleased at how they turned out. Now you might be wondering what a stand-out piece is and we thought it would be easier to show you than try to explain. So we took some snaps of them and put them up in our dining room already. (My goal is to have collage around the big mirror…so this is the start of my process). Other great things about the stand-outs: no framing required & they are prepped to hang with pre drilled holes! Take a look, let us know if you’re drooling over these too… and just so you know…a little birdie told me that two custom silhouettes and two stand-outs might be a FREE give-a-way in the near future. Stay tuned with more details on that awesome offer!

We picked the silhouette style with the cute accessories (Philip with his handsome tie and me with a pink flower).

Three Pennies : Creative Photography and Graphic Design

I think if you ask any guy what Valentine’s Day means to them, they’ll most likely say something like, “Obligation.” If you ask a girl the same thing, they would say, “An expected date from my boyfriend or husband.” More than likely these are true about most people. Last minute flowers or card, topped off with the dreaded box of “mystery” chocolates, perfect (sarcasm).

Since Three Pennies is all about love, we figured we should do our part in creating…well…options instead of these unoriginal Valentine’s Day situations. We didn’t really know where to start so we went basic (aka, I asked Anna what she would want), and it all comes down to this, women want thoughtful gifts. Not just a date night at the Olive Garden for the umptenth time or some last minute effort  to impress her; the ladies want a sweet, sentimental and meaningful gift. I know I know I know, “This is year is going to be different,” you say, but you said that last year and all she got out of it was left overs. So without further anticipation (drum-roll optional):

Three Pennies is proud to present their first ever Valentine’s Day: Head Over Heals promo. That’s right…Three Pennies’ is bringing the love back in 2011! (Cue the sexy saxophone music).

It’s usually Philip who writes most of the blog posts but Three Pennies’ has decided to try out a new genre of post that he knows absolutely nothing about. So, for you Sunday read, you’ll enjoy the writing of the other half, Anna.

A couple months ago I  started on this fun little silhouette project which eventually became our family’s Christmas gift. Since then, I have been itching to somehow incorporate this into Three Pennies. Beautiful, simple, timeless silhouettes that add such a personal touch to almost anything. My mind has been racing with ideas on where we can use them: classic wedding invitations, linen pillows, hanging decor plates….even a sweet Valentine’s card with you and your sweet someone’s silhouette profiles (ok several of those are ideas are for our own home decor but hey they’re still fun ideas!). I know I could keep rambling on, but I thought the best ideas would probably come from you guys. What do you think we could use them as? But the better question would probably be, would you like to use them? This is perfect timing for us to know because we are building up our photo packages for our Valentine’s Day promo and wondered if adding custom silhouettes would be fun. Can’t wait to hear what you think! Until then, check out the fun profile silhouettes of my family…hopefully that will get your creative minds running.
