D.I.Y Valentine

February 9, 2013
It’s no secret that I love Valentines day, I mean what’s not to love. I usually give my friends and family small gifts (usually chocolate)  and last year I made my partner and I a three course candle-lit dinner and got him a really nice watch (Hey it was our first Valentines, had to pull out the big guns).

This year though, I’m going the DIY route. I have been collecting ideas and supplies but it really doesn’t take much to make a thoughtful heartfelt present, all you need is a little inspiration and here I am, click the links for tutorials and more info

1. Glitter Jars for your candy and whatever you please…

3. His and Hers mugs, write a quote that means something to both of you

4. Cupcakes! with Raspberry filling

6. Maybe you already bought something, DIY wrapping paper!
8. Love Notes book (you can also do a scrapbook)
9.  And for the very best, a hug, a kiss, a smile or a few kind words
Most of these projects are inexpensive and just take a little time, remember that this is inspiration, if you don’t have all the materials needed just work with what you have. Give a friend, a relative, a lover or even yourself! Have a great valentine.
I’m doing a combination of about three of these, can you guess which?
Happy DIYing
Love always,
