We’ve been apart for quite some time. I’ve been a busy girl and have had hardly any time for crafting. It’s something I’ve missed. So, I have a present for you. I have a gift bag.
Okay, I’m going to teach you how to make a gift bag… from scrapbook paper. Paper is really amazing. You can do so much with it. This particular paper craft is really easy to make and will hold lightweight items. Read the whole post
Just about every year I make a lists of gifts to get the man in your life for Valentine’s Day. Why not one for her too? Sometimes I do, but I usually stick to the boyfriend gifts because it’s harder to buy for him. (AND we don’t appreciate men very much during this holiday. We should work on that.) Guys don’t give you hints and they don’t care where you go to eat as long as there isn’t a crazy wait. Read the whole post
First, I’d like to apologize for my absence last week. I got sick and missed all kinds of good stuff like my work holiday party and the 60 degree weather. For once, crafting was not on my priority list. It was not a good weekend. But this weekend is a better one.
Valentine’s Day is coming up… That means you want to look and feel your best, right? Of course. Forget V-Day though, I want smooth skin all the time. Read the whole post

Ohhh, Valentine’s Day…
A holiday that’s either loved or hated depending on the person’s relationship status.
I’ve never been wild about the holiday, but I do enjoy chocolate and hearts, so I’ll make it work. Of course, with that in mind, my Valentine’s Day themed craft involves candy. Read the whole post
Every year I post a list of Valentine’s Day gifts for the men, and it’s about that time of year again. Have you started thinking about it yet? It’s okay if you haven’t. I have a list of good buys and DIYs for your man.
My lists rarely consist of the typical, cliche gifts. I try find unique gifts throughout the year, mostly from Etsy or something you can make yourself, and make note of them. Read the whole post
I hope you all had a great Valentine’s Day!! The above drawing is the Valentine I gave to my boyfriend of almost 7 years. He actually said this about a week ago and I thought it would make a cute card.
This is what we did yesterday and it was wonderful.
I made these chocolate covered pretzels for him because they’re his favorite.
Then we went to a new brewery that opened up nearby for pizza and beer. Read the whole post
If you couldn’t tell yet, I love pink. Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I have more of a reason to make everything pink. My first victim? A very fun and easy to make DIY candy jar! This is one of those crafts that you never would’ve guessed was under $5. You can get all of your supplies at the Dollar Store except the Deco Pens (but you could also use Sharpies). You might not be able to find the knobs there either, but any craft store will have them just a bit more than $1. Read the whole post
I read some stats today claiming that an estimated $13.9 billion will be spent on Valentine’s Day this year and that there will be 180 Million cards exchanged.
Cards actually account for 52.1% of gifts given Valentine’s Day (stats assume that cards are given along with other gifts.)
I would’ve never guessed that.
I started looking at some cards on Etsy and found some unique ones that I want to share with you.
The Funny Valentine’s Day cards
I like the funny cards, so I would go for something like this from RowHouse14. Read the whole post
I still can’t believe 2015 has started, and now Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Ugh. Time moves too fast doesn’t it?
I was contemplating my craft for today and thought, Wow, Valentine’s Day is only a few weeks away. I should make a craft for it. And what do you think of when you think of the love-inspired holiday? Right, hearts.
I found some burlap canvas at Walmart (surprisingly) along with red and white multi-sized buttons and decided that it would make a nice craft. Read the whole post
I love mason jar crafts; they make such cute gifts. So I decided to make a Valentine’s Day themed craft since the holiday is right around the corner. It was really easy to make and only took about 1/2 hour, if that. This could be a nice one to make with your kids, too!
Unfortunately, my camera card snapped half-way through, so the above photo is the only picture I was able to get. It’s a good thing this craft is easy to explain without a ton of pictures. Read the whole post
