Belated Valentines...

Ok so I'm a couple of days late but as far as I'm concerned its the weekend of love too!

So I'm a bit of a sucker for sending my friends little gifts in the post...handmade of course! I've been a bit off my game recently and missed the opportunity of doing anything for Christmas so I was extra determined to do Valentines day!

I filled jam jars with cherry lips and heart throbs- and decorated the jars with the lovely Waterfall Hearts from Pink Petticoat, die cut some extra sparkly hearts from some bargain paper I found at hobby craft and finished it with my favourite button twine!

Obviously you can't send a gift without a card!! I wanted a simple design that I could reproduce quickly! I die cut some more sparkly hearts- god I love how sparkly it is! And some smaller hearts from some pink scraps and stamped my sentiment on to a white base which I added too red and hot pink card base- voila!

All packaged and's always nice to send some love to your favourites!!

Long lost blogger...


Long time no blogging!

So where have you been I hear you cry! After a really busy couple of months in the summer making wedding invitations and table plans for 3 weddings, and also finding out I’m pregnant, crafting took a bit of a back burner.

My motivation has diminished greatly and I’ve been taking time getting ready for our baby girl – Due in March!

I’ve still been dabbling and checking out lots of craft blogs and much to Adams despair purchasing bits and pieces that have caught my eye.  I am happy to say I seem to have found some mojo – I can’t guarantee how long this will last with everything that is happening but I shall be around for a bit at least.

Seeing as its Valentines day, and I’m a sucker for romance I couldn’t resist sharing some crafty treats with you today.  As I didn’t want to bleat on at you for pages, I shall be back later with some love themed creations.
