Weekly wrap up: Craft Parties, Snow, Let’s Celebrate & Getting Ready for Spring!

A few things I made, read or discovered this week:

This week was, of course, all about that big lovely dovey Valentines Day. I was supposed to have a craft party on the eve of valentines, but the weather in these parts have been wild, crazy and snowy, so it was sadly cancelled. But I did get to make a valentines day party photo booth backdrop that I was absurdly proud of.

Tried out this mini love messages project this week. It was really lovely in theory but really had a problem at the end.

My party decor shop (Celebrate!) is now live on Etsy! There isn’t much on there yet but just excited that its coming together.

Another shop that went live this week was frolick and whimsy, my mother’s knitted clothing shop for the kiddos.

I’m a huge fan of simple projects, but maybe I can break out of my routine and challenge myself a bit with this lovely crepe paper flower.

It’s a little early to start thinking about plants and gardening, but I love this project to make a DIY cement plant post!

These watercolor paper flowers are gorgeous.

I loved watching this amazing video that is all about some geometrical heart love.

Weekly Wrap Up: Geometric Hearts Pattern, Vday Craft Party and More

This week has been a fantastic one for me. I made an important decision and have followed up by taking control of my career. This was followed by lots of planning, coffee, ice cream parties with the little one and focus. I also got to participate in something special and sweet this week that fills my heart with love.

Here’s a few of the highlights & discoveries of my week:

Wrap Your Lovey Dovey Gifts in this Beautiful Free Printable Heart Paper

I’m hosting a Vday Craft Party! This will be the first of a series of monthly seasonally-themed craft parties I’ll be hosting. This is one of the first steps in my business plan for The How-To Shop.

The way the weather has been the past few weeks finding ways to battle colds are more important than ever right now.

I love the simplicity of this Valentines Day craft project.

Have a fabulous weekend!

On a day like today, I wanna leave sweet little surprises around the house for him to find. This sweet flower project is just the kind to make anyone smile.

What special things do you do for your loved ones on special days like this?

It’s Valentine’s Season! Ideas for Sharing the Love Any Day of the Year

20140123-063532.jpg

This post comes entirely from the lovely Oh Happy Day blog. Jordan Ferney, who runs the blog, will be speaking at the Makers Summit that I so excitedly posted about earlier.

I never really celebrate Valentines Day. It’s a packed month for me and the hubs – filled with anniversaries and birthdays and the over expectations of that big love day. But I’m thinking this year I may wanna start doing little things. Just little tidbits here and there to show my special man that I still love him – after all this time…

Some of my favorites in this Valentine’s day craft post is the giant love letters, the heart cup and above all the heart garland!

I do want to remind you that Valentine’s day isn’t only for couples. It’s also a day to show love to all that you love, be it your mom, child, lover or dog! So show some love!
