Valentine's Gift Ideas

Need a Valentine's Day gift idea?

If your husband is sporty or owns a boat, this Speedo submersion sports towel is a great gift. I found this at Target.

My sweet neighbors are getting cones stuffed with Dove chocolates.

I used more of my Crate Paper Love Notes stash from Tuesday Morning to make these Valentine's Day tussie mussies.

I made this little cutie for my little cutie. Now that I have a sewing machine, this was unbelievably easy. Flipagram tutorial on my Instagram account.

Inside, I stuffed a manicure kit complete with a set of Valentine's Jamberry nails, alcohol wipes, an orange stick, and a rice pillow to heat in the microwave and apply the nails.

The planner lover in your life will love this paisley paperclip. Listed in my etsy shop.

What are you gifting this year?

Valentine's Day Teacher Gifts

My kid's teachers are getting these for Valentine's Day. Can you guess what it is?

It is a velvet heart shaped scarf hanger! I love it. Who doesn't need a place to hang scarves? I think they are the perfect teacher gift for Valentine's Day.
And what doesn't look cuter with a ribbon and tag on it?
I found these at Tuesday Morning.

DIY Craft Room Work Table

My Christmas gift from my husband was a butcher block work table made by him and I love it. What baby wants, baby gets.

I love the painted pink porch rail spindles that he used as legs. My ten-year old painted those with yet another gallon of oops paint that we got for $7. She did a great job, didn't she?

We found the wood counter top and legs from a local salvage shop. The legs were only $1.25 each!

This is where my repurposed organizer that holds all of my embellishments lives. You can see how I made it here. I wanted a space where I could work standing up and this workbench is perfect. Now I have a spot where Project Life, my Slice machine, and other cutting tools can stay out and ready to use.

Here is a peek before I cleaned up my craft room for you. Valentines have taken over!

I think it takes great advantage of the slanted walls.

Get your craft on!

Valentine's Memory Banner

Have you made your valentines yet?

I used Crate Paper's Love Notes collection to make these cards.
My new fringe scissors came in handy for this one.

This little chipboard heart needed a little color, so I raided my daughter's stash and found a princess paint pen. I love the aqua pearlized touch.

Doilies make valentines cuter! And mini puffy heart stickers! I used the sewing machine on this one. The mini clothespins from Target Dollar Spot were the perfect touch.

                The Slice Machine was used to cut the heart out of the center of the pink ombre paper.


A Basic Grey chipboard frame covered in more princess paint completed this one.

Mini alpha stickers worked perfectly.

Letters and hearts were cut from patterned paper to make this card.
