valentine’s day diy

valentine's day diy
valentine’s day card exchange at school. i can still remember the feeling of excitement i would get when it was my turn to hand out my (hand crafted) valentine’s day cards to all my classmates. fast-forward some 6 or 7 (very awkward) years to the days where my high school would sell bouquets of flowers to students to be delivered to their sweethearts. i would get the nervous jitter bugs everytime someone opened the classroom door with a delivery of flowers, only to see them passed to a neighbor (though i think i did receive a bouquet from a ‘secret admirer’ once… creepy?).

my point? i think these diy heart pins from the purl bee would be the perfect project for this year’s valentine’s day exchange at any school. easy to make and suitable for kids- i just love this v-day diy!

valentine's day diy
don’t have kids? i think these would be so pretty pinned to your valentine’s day cards or attached to pretty wool jacket. what do you think? i love the array of colors here, i’m not sure i could choose a favorite (but if i had to, it’d probably be that peachy cream or mustard yellow). head on over to the purl bee for the full diy!

a heartfelt diy
valentine’s day is just around the corner. can you believe it? before we know it love birds all around will be booking reservations, planning special dates and buying chocolate hearts. whether you plan on going out or staying in, a little love and celebration is always good for the soul. to spruce up the holiday decor, i love this diy valentine’s garland from how about orange.

a heartfelt diy
i think these would be so pretty strung in a window or over a dinner table set for two. jump over to how about orange for the full how-to!

i think we’ve had a good week here, don’t you?  i’ve had so much fun chatting with you all!  i’ve got some more really fun stuff planned for next week, and hopefully i’ll be fulfilling a promise i made long ago on monday- i’m at least going to try!

i had so much fun doing my first mood board, that i’m going to stick to what i said and do some more!  this one of course, was inspired by valentine’s day. cupcakes, cinnamon cookies, dark chocolate and russian tea- yup, that about sums it up!

do you see the soap bar in the middle? that is yummy chocolate soap by mojo spa- and it’s incredible! it smells so delicious.  what could be better than having permission to rub chocolate all over your body? :)

pretty little things like these vintage buttons really me, i love looking at all the little details in life.

mood board

what are you doing for valentine’s day? i think we’re going to lay low this weekend and spend the day at home with movies and a nice dinner.  i really want some new bubble bath, i haven’t had any in months! so i’m just putting that out there- sweetie, did you catch that?

valentine's day printable cards

printables – sweet love valentine’s day party circles :: be mine bicycle :: valentine’s cards – set of 8 :: printable valentine’s – robot parade :: love bug printable :: printable valentine’s cards – diy :: pdf valentine shower with love whale :: diy love coupons :: printable valentine mini card set

happy valentine’s day eve eve love bugs! will you be mine?

since it’s only two days away, and i think half of the u.s. is snowed in (eeks!) – these are all pdf, downloadable valentine’s day cards! that’s right, you can print them right from home and they range from 20¢ to $7.00 so they are super affordable.  if you find one you like, you could just print multiples for all the sweeties in your life, making it a real snag of a deal.  and, let’s be serious-  i don’t think any of the big box stores have cards as cute as these (how could you say no to that robot??).

apron collage

i always feel a bit funny posting about myself, ha!  but, i just finished my latest batch of aprons, and i’m too excited not to share them with you!  they are all reversible and full of spring goodness.  i just love the color palette of them all together.

i had tons of fun making them, i love picking out the fabrics and deciding what to put on each of them.  this time, i was racing against the sunset to get my photos taken.  at 4:45 both of my cameras had died, and yes, somehow i couldn’t find either charger! what?!  so, i ran to my mom’s house, grabbed her camera and got the last of them taken, just before it got too dark.  ah!

oh, and here’s a valentine’s day apron that i just couldn’t fit into the collage!


on a slightly different note, have i mentioned how much i love to go antiquing? i couldn’t think of anything more fun to do on a day off! but, i usually come across these lovely finds and never know what to do with them.  so, in addition to my vintage frames at old renewed, i’ve decided to add vintage finds as well!

this little guy came to me this week, and i thought he was perfect for valentines day! he’s a little mouse-y bank! i’ll be adding more vintage finds as i can, so stay tuned if your a vintage junkie like me!

i hope you enjoy! xoxo, bonnie
