Double chances to win Jillibean Soup goodies

**edited to add picture and close date**
I WILL DRAW A NAME FROM THE COMMENTS ON FRIDAY THE 13th at 9PM EST.
PLEASE check back to see if you have won! :)

If you haven't seen the announcement yet on the Jillibean Soup blog that there will be a Design Team call coming up very soon, check it out! Keep checking back in the next week or so for when the actual call goes live! There will be a new blog started as well.

How about 2 different opportunities to win some Jillibean goodies?
My crazy Canadian Friend Sarah is giving away a set of Jillibean papers and Journaling Sprouts with matching Core'dinations cardstock. Check out her blog.

I'm fortunate to have a TON of Jillibean product here from my pre-CHA creating. So, not to be out done by the Crazy Canadian, I will also giveaway some Jillibean goodies and matching WorldWin papers. (I'll post a photo later today when the sun comes up.)

Simply tell me what your favorite Valentine's Day gift. Wether it be from a significant other, your kids or great friends... let me hear it! I'm very thankful for my friend Jennifer that is inviting myself and the kiddlets over for dinner on Valentine's Day since Bill won't be back in time.
You've got to love sweet friends!

Have a good one all!

My favorite Vday gift hands down was a chocolate rose & sweetly written poem from my then 7-yr-old daughter. She saved her money & bought it from a fundraiser at school. The poems keep coming - she's now a 25-yr-old journalist who loves to write things for her mama. Kimber, although we never met, I was a DT member at Xanadu's Avon store. Don't you miss the store & all of Mary's goodies? I've been following your blog & hope Bill arrives home soon.

Kristin said...

My favorite gift was roses to my office with a note of a surprise dinner that evening. That one never gets old! Oh I hope I win, this line is just awesome!

Dorothy Noreen Hunter-Talbot said...

My favorite Valentine's Day was the year that hubby and our boys surprised me with dinner all prepared when I got home from work, a beautiful bouquet of roses and hand made cards from all the boys. Then after dinner they cleaned everything up and then presented me with the biggest box of chocolates I have ever seen.

peggy w said...

I always loved when the kids were little and they would make something at school and give it to me. I cherish those gifts. Thank you for the contest and the givewawy.

Jess said...

My favorite valentine gift was when my boyfriend made me a 3D origami rose. It looks very real and is incredibly intricate. It may only be a piece of paper to some as a crafter I really appreciate the time it takes to make some simple materials into a beautiful creation.

Brianna said...

When I was in collage my boyfriend (now husband) sent me cookies for Valentine's day! I loved that!

Jenn said...

My favorite gift was a simple dinner my husband cooked for me! He doesn't cook at all so it was a big surprise!

Corey said...

oh I've been wanting some JBS stuff!

my fave gift was the year my dh left a paper heart trail from our drive way to the dinner table where the table was set by candle light and the center piece was 2 doz roses with a bear holding a bracelet. I liked the effort he put into making it special more than the gifts!

Kimmie said...

I dont think i have ever got a Valentine gift. My dh and I dont celebrate because we are usually on the road headed south for vacation. So if i had to say it would be the vacation every year

castlebc said...

WOW a chance to win some of the awesome JBS collection. I'm in! Last year on Valentine's, McDonald's was giving away large Sweet Tea. I am quite an addict and I was surprised when my hubby arrived home with one for me. Even though it was free it was such an awesome gesture that he would stop and get one (he usually he doesn't encourage my 'habit').

Erin said...

My favorite valentine gift was when my husband and I were first dating and when he came to pick me up for our date I got in the truck and there was a stuffed teddy bear and around it's neck was a pretty heart neclace. it was so sweet..

sshoenninger said...

When I was little(grade school) my Dad use to send a rose and have it delivered to me at school. More recently having my husband sending flowers to me at work. It's even more fun to get flowers when there are other people around to admire them.

Tina B. said...

My favorite gift would have to be all the pictures and cards that my daughter has made for me over the past years...she rocks!!!!!

Lisa said...

My husband. I didn't meet him on Valentine's Day or anything like that, but just knowing that I'll have him as my Valentine for the rest of my life. That's the best gift.

Cass said...

I love Jillibean goodies and would love to win!
This Valentines Day I am looking forward to spending time with my family and then my present from my husband is some time to scrapbook!

Ash H. said...

My favorite gift was a picnic in the park, where my hubby and I ate brie and crackers, kiwi, strawberries and oranges. We named all the squirrels and made up we stories about their lives. It was great and it is our Valentine's Day tradition now.

~Q~ said...

My favorite gift would have to be the first one DH gave me when we were engaged - it was a scottish thistle necklace charm. I loved that charm and was very sad when it fell off one day and I didn't realize it until that night. :(

Parker and Emma's Mom said...

I love when the kids make me things at school every year.

Katie K said...

My favorite Valentine gift was when my dad bought my sister and me "real" jewelry. Mom was usually in charge of gifts so knowing it came from him was special. He slipped the box in between a teddy bear's paws and taped on a speech bubble w/ "I love Katie" on it. In the box was an "Xs and O's" bracelet and the Os were hearts.

Gina said...

My favorite Valentine's gift came from my hubby way back in 1993 while we were still dating . . . the gift was a very romantic dinner up at a lodge in the mountains. It was so romantic and perfect we spent our honeymoon there also! :) It's a place I'll never EVER forget! :)

Cynthia B. said...

I honestly don't remember any Valentine's gifts I've gotten, except one time my boyfriend (now-hubby) went out, then stopped at the grocery store for a couple things. I stayed in the car, and he came walking to the car w/ something behind his back...it was a rose. He's not a "flower" kinda guy, so I appreciate that gift even more!

Julie said...

My favorite are the simple things...like a heart shaped pizza that hubby brought home. Yes, food is always good!

ajrunge said...

my favourite valentines gift would have to be from my husband in 2005. We had just moved to a new town, didn't know anyone one and he had promised that I could get a puppy when we moved.....so thats what he got me an absolutely adorable yellow lab puppy! And he has been by my side ever since :)

Tracey said...

I am pretty winning this might be my fave Valentine's gift ever!! I'll be honest - I don't think I have ever been given anything for V-Day. Hubby is just not into that sort of thing.

Laura Stewart said...

definitely Tulips - love them

DeniseB said...

Mostly my Valentine's Day has been to go out to dinner. Can't recall anything else.
And from my daughter, a school project of a handmade card. Those are always special.

melita said...

I always love receiving chocolates whether it's for Valentine's day or not. I'm a chocoholic. hihi. Thanks for the chance at winning.

Delia W said...

My fav was a hand written note from my partner a few years back. If I read it now, it still makes me smile and remember stuff from 2000/2001 that he refers to in the note...

Jodi said...

My husband brought me home a bouquet of DMC thread among other things...I cross stitch :o) It was that he thought outside the box and even wrapped them in ribbon that made it so special. Thank for the chance!

rmeyfe said...

I would love to get some of those Jillibean Soup supplies for valentines but I have to say my favorite valentines are actually the handmade ones that my kids make for me. I just love seeing their little pictures of our family with hearts and kisses.

Deb said...

Thank you for this awesome giveaway! We don't usually do much for Valentine's Day, but three years ago when I was a brand new Mommy, my hubby bought me a V-Day card from my son. I thought that was so sweet since my hubby usually doesn't buy cards for anything!

Amy Coose said...

Kimber, thanks so much for giving away some of this fabulousness! My fav Vday gift would have to be from my babies. My DS gave me a felt heart that says love, and my DD gave me a pot that she painted.

Janet said...

My fav Valentine gift is a simple one. I spend time with my family--kids and partner and we play scrabble. It's a time of laughter and fun....what more could I ask?

62 Cards - Sammye Jo said...

My favorite Valentine of all time was when I was 17, and a senior in high school. My dad who is a big dairy farmin' country boy had three roses on the kitchen table when we got up that morning.. He was already gone, the dairy cows call at 3:30am. By each rose was a post it that simply said our name. Sammye Jo, I love you. Dad (Same goes for my mom and sister) It was so perfect. I cried. This was very unexpected and just as sweet nad simple as he is.

A little thought means more than any huge gift. I still have that post it 10 years later, and will keep it forever.

Thanks fo rthe chance. I would love to use these great products.

Sarah Mullanix said...

My favorite Valentine's gift is anytime that my hubby actually remembers Valentine's Day!!

kimandasmom said...

After a few years of unexpected things happening on Valentine's day that always ruined our plans... we now have a new tradition of ordering takeout and having a candlelight dinner at our coffee table every year...and last year while I was at work dh got into my cricut and made me the most awesome Valentines card ever and it was in the middle of the table when I came home. I could believe he used my Cricut to make hearts and words and everything...it was meant so much to me....even if he did make a mess of my cutting sheet. LOL
Thanks for the chance at a totally awesome RAK!

The Hopkins Family said...

My favorite was my engagement ring...the whole family was in on it! A great memory. Thanks so much for the chance to win some JB!

JudyT said...

My favorite Valentine's Day gift has been anything made by my kids with a little bit of chocolate thrown in for good measure. Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Beth said...

I receive my favorite gift every year - a nice box of chocolates from my hubby. he knows me so well. :-)

abbie said...

My favorite V-day gift was given to me last year. It was a bouquet of roses from my fiance (now husband) with a note that said "Happy Valentine's Day sweetheart, I can't wait to marry you!" We got married on May 31 of '08. I will always remember that!

Expressions of a Creative Mind said...

Lavimom said...

My neighbor is getting a puppy Rottweiler this valentine's day...how can you beat that??

Stephanie said...

Hey Chicky!
Love love those papers! :-)

My favourite V-day gifts are always the ones the kids make me at school!

*Paula* said...

I love handmade cards - especially the ones my dh makes for me using my scrappy supplies - he's really good at it! shh, don't tell anyone I told you!

cindy said...

I have so many favorite Valentine gifts, from the sweet little things the kids would bring home from school (all of which i still have)and of course my husband is always buying me jewelry (something you can never have enough of) and i cherish every piece he buys. So i guess every Valentine is pretty special.

Cherie said...

Not sure what happened to my original comment because it didn't post but I was saying that hubby and I don't celebrate V-Day because we love eachother every day like it's special....and I'm fully aware of how completely corny that sounds. LOL ;)

Oh...and I'm super excited to apply for the Jillibean DT!!

djp said...

My favorite gift is the journal that DH and I started way back in 2001. We write in it, leave it somewhere for a surprise, and continue passing it on. through college and even still, we occassionally bring out the book and laugh, and begin writing in it again!

Shannon said...

I would have to say my favourite Valentine's Gift was the first year my husband and I were dating! He bought me a pair of diamond earings which I still wear today 9 years later!

KimA said...

My favourite gift is when I get an absolute surprise present from my hubby!

Houston said...

My new camera, an early gift from my sweet husband!

Mel Horn said...

A couple of years ago my husband surprised me with a really beautiful pair of earrings. The funny part is we had already been married for 15 years and he had never picked anything out for me (on his own) before. Not clothes, jewelry or anything. So needless to say I was pretty impressed!

ellen s. said...

my fave vday was when i just found out i was prego and needed to have surgery a few days after valentines day. brian sent me a boyd's bear with a note {we still had a long distance relationship til we got things settled" with the sweetest note, i still have both of them!

Cari said...

Oh my goodness!!! Her stuff is awesome!! I love that kraft look!!
Well, to be honest we really haven't done the V-day stuff .. because we celebrate ALL YEAR!!! ;)

Sudie said...

my favorite Vday gift was a bottle of chocolate syrup given to me by my then boyfriend, now husband. I was having to stay with my parents to recover from surgery. My mom is a healthy eater and had no chocolate in the house. He knew that chocolate milk was my nightly ritual and indulgence. It was so sweet and thoughtful.

Melissa said...

My favorite Valentines gift is just spending time with my dh! While he is not travelling, we live on such opposite schedules so much of the time.

Renee' Morris-Dezember said...

My favorite gift was the year my hubby gave me some diamond earrings...what a surpise...as we never exchanged gifts before...with the kiddos now we have a fancy dinner here at home...togteher :) Thanks for the chance to when these goodies!

Heather M. said...

Well, DH sent me for a massage last week for Valentine's Day and I have to say that that was probably the best treat ever - an hour without kids to totally relax - soooooo awesome!

Happy Valentine's Day to you - I hope you have fun with your friends!

Wendy Sue said...

Is it okay that my favorite Valentine's Day gift was from a boyfriend way back a million years ago when I was in high school? He had a red rose delivered to me in each of my seven classes through the day...and then gave me the remaining five (to make a dozen) after school with a cute card...ah, young love...:o)

Julie O. said...

SUWEEEEEEEET!!! LOVE that paper!!

I'd have to say that my favorite V.Day gift would be time a lone with my dh (well....maybe a bit of Jillibean Soup products to go along too!) LOL!!

Thanks for the chance at a fabulous give-a-way!

Holly S said...

My favorite/most treasured Valentine's gift of all time was a love note hand written by my husband given to me the first year we were married-it expressed all the feelings he had/has for me along with his dreams and hopes for our future together. We've been married now for 12 years and every year on V Day I take that letter out and we read it together and remember where we were and how much in love with each other we still are!
thanks for the giveaway!

s zuklich said...

**PS I deleted my last comment since I had so many spelling errors it didn't even look like English anymore...lol

Lynn said...

My hubby is the romantic in this family and has a little getaway planned for us this weekend complete with tickets to a comedy club, dinner, and a stay at a beautiful hotel. We haven't been away since our boys were born so I am really looking forward to a little special hubby time! :)

Peggy said...

great pack of goodies!!!!

my favorite valentine was chocolates, DH knows I love them.

Rachel Carlson said...

ah kimber, your work with the new jillibean soup is lovely! my fav gift has to be a handmade card from the hubster as he snuck into my studio to use papers that were cleverly hidden by me for another use. gotta love the thought, his intentions were good! hugs, rachel

Shanna said...

oooooh! Pick me Kimber! Can't wait to get my hands on some of these new goodies! YAY!

arlsmom aka Lynda said...

My favorite vday gift thus far has been flowers that my girls picked out for me...dh said they could pick what they wanted...they ended up with two dozen multi-colored roses...and a HUGE receipt!!!

Linda Beeson said...

I so need some of that yummy stuff in my hands!!! Love what I see!

Christa said...

I'm not a big Valentine's person myself, but this year I'm getting a good gift. My husband is deployed and I'm heading out to visit my in laws. My gift? Some much needed time to myself to go do some shopping!! And winning this on top of it would be wonderful! Thanks for the giveaway!

Kristine said...

My favorite Valentine's gift was last year, my husband got up early, went to Starbucks and came home with a grande nonfat caramel macchiatto. It made me melt that he went out on a snowy morning and did that for me.

dannisdoodles said...

you, both, have such gorgeous blogs, love the photography & design, wow!

My favorite Valentine's day gift are the cards made by my 4 children & the card my husband makes me every year...it is THE BEST! (i can't ever find anything in my office afterwards but it is worth every unorganized second, i display them in my office all year....giggle)

Tanya C said...

Is it wrong that I still love to get flowers on vday? Whether they are roses, tulips or lilies - I love them all

Shannon said...

That is so awesome of you to do the RAK. My favorite valentine's day gift is,was and always will be CHOCOLATE!! I know...not terribly original or lovey/dovey...but who can say no to that wonderful chocolately goodness?! Not me, I tell you!!

I will admit, though...that one year my hubby bought me a rose that had been covered and sealed in gold so that it will last forever...like our love. Isn't that adorable? He rocks!!

Anyway...thanks again!

ALLY said...

Believe it or not my all time favourite Valentine's gift was a housecoat and a snowboarding helmet! Yup! I'm not kidding!! When my husband (boyfriend then) and I first started dating, we loved to go snowboarding so he bought me some important gear and a housecoat to keep me warm when I got home from the hills! He "wrapped" it up in a grocery bag for me... you know... man wrapping!!! LOL!

Beth Warren said...

Wow, what a great giveaway! I don't know what my favorite gift was - I guess a pair of gold hoop earrings I got one year.

lwarren737 said...

Great giveaway! My favorite Valentine's Day Gift was a combination Christmas/Valentine's Day present, a diamond bracelet.

Beth Root: Music Teacher said...

My favorite Valentine's gift was when my husband gave me a beautiful rose and looped my engagement ring on a leaf. So romantic.

the only problem was, he didn;t hint it was there and I smelled the rose, and then set it down to talk to him. hours later, he brought it to me again to sort of "re-try" the moment"0) Obviously, it worked the 2nd time...tee hee!

Fun products, Kimber. You guys have done a fantastic job!

Nicole said...

My favorite Valentine gift was a card from my husband (boyfriend at the time) telling me that he was falling in love with me. It's 13 years later and I still love reading it.

Amy Adams (aka Scrapitgal) said...

My favorite Valentine's gift was from my hubby a few years back. I came home from work and he handed me a Valentine card. Inside the card was a clue and I had to look for my gift around the house. It started with a bottle of my favorite lotion and another clue and so on. Of course he made a scrumptious dinner too! It wasn't so much what the gifts were, but the thrill of the search and being suprised.

Janet Z said...

My favourite Valentine's gift was always from my Dad. He not only made my Mom feel special but his children too. There was always a lovely box of chocolates on my plate at the breakfast table with a card. Love my Dad!!

Veronica said...

I love the handmade things my boys make at school. Love to get them out to decorate.

Ari Vega-Macias said...

my dh and i were married on the 9th, so we have our anniversary right before V's day.

we have never celebrated v's day though....by the time it rolls around we are all partied out:)

Zofia said...

I've actually got two favourite Valentine gifts. First one I got when I was seven or eight, and it was from my sister. It was a postcard, with an encyclopaedic definitions of love, like the ones one can find in a dictionary, and it was fascinating for me then, despite the fact that I didn't know English and LOVE was the only word I could recognise. :-)
The other one is probably "more mature" in a way. I got it last year, and it was only a month after I met my current boyfriend. We met on the internet, and didn't even see each other at that time... And on the 14th of February postman brought me a parcel with heart-shaped cookies and a big pack of hot vanilla &cinamon flavoured chocolate, and with the cutiest VCard ever, with just a few lines written on it, but it's so dear to me I have it folded in my wallet all the time :)

This year I'm gonna give him an album I made by my self, with our photos scrapbooked, celebrating exactly a year of our relationship... I hope it will be his favourite Vday gift ever :)

Lynn said...

My favorite is a tennis bracelet with little rubies (my birthstone) in it! My hubby surprised me a few years ago with it!

Lynette C said...

My favourite has to be the handmade cards from my kids. They are pricsless to me.

Lea L. said...

On our second Valentine's day together...my then boyfriend, now husband had my flowers delivered to the restaurant we were eating at...and they had a special table set up for us. So, when we walked in the door, we were directed right to our table, with the dozen roses. That had to have been quite a feat on VDAY, in a popular restaurant, in a small city.

~Lea

Sue Christian said...

My favorite Valentines came from my granddaughters when they were younger and they had to give ones they bought to give to friends at school.

Carol said...

DH travels a bunch for work (like 35-40 weeks a year), so my favorite gift is just having him home. Thanks for the chance to win some awesome goodies!

Ruth Shanahan Allmart said...

Well, I get to go scrapbook at Archiver's tomorrow night and then on the Valentine's day we will be ordering Thai food for dinner (yum!) and then having chocolate fondue for dessert :o) The gift of time is always my fav gift these days with twin five year old girls to keep me busy!

Jennifer said...

Hi there! Thanks for the chance to win some yummy Jillibean goodies! My favorite Valentine's gift was back in 1995 when my boyfriend proposed to me on a local radio station! It was so much fun and quite a surprise! How could I say no? We've been married for 13 years now!

Jennifer

cathy said...

I am so glad I found your blog from Laura Ping's blog. My favorite Valentine's gift was from my dad when I was 8 years old. He got me this little apple pendant necklace and I remember loving how red the apple was and feeling so proud and loved by my daddy. He continued the tradtion by getting me something special just for me every Valentine's day. I am loving checkign out the Jillibean line. Thanks for sharing!

Sarah said...

My favorite Valentine gift was mini-vacation to a cute b&b along Lake Michigan. We loved it so much that dh took me back there to propose.

Heidi said...

I'd have to say that my favorite Valentine's gift was a cuddly grey pet rabbit my boyfriend (now my husband)gave me in high school. I fell in love with it at the pet store and would visit it everyday while I was working at the mall. He surprised me with "Harvey" on Valentines Day. Luckily, my parents were fine with adding another pet to our family LOL

Heidi

Michelle (mla1111) said...

My favorite gift is when the little kiddies make the cute valenties for you...so adorable! And of course anything chocolate & any bling!! =)

debbiec said...

i think my favorite valentine's day gift has to be the roses i got delivered to work the year i got engaged.
i had NEVER gotten any valentine's day gifts from anyone except my mom, much less in public with other people admiring!
i'll never forget that feeling of having the delivery guy walk in with the boquet for ME!

fran h said...

My favorite gift was a heart bracelet and a heart shaped pie from TCBY that my husband had given me many valentines ago while we were dating. Love the new jillibean products.
Thanks for the chance to win some.
Happy Valentines Day.

My favorite Valentine's Day gift was my husband! (We were married on 2-14-81.)
