I don’t need Valentine’s Day to tell you “I love you”.
Ever thought of that?
Valentine’s Day is coming up. Obviously. Once you leave the house and step into a store, there’s hearts & chocolates & kitsch & millions of shades of pink and red everywhere.
Today at the supermarket I saw people swarming in front of a rack full of Valentine’s Day gifts, grabbing tacky stuffed animals, overpriced boxes of chocolates and all sorts of pink knickknack.
A lot of people make desperate efforts to find something they can buy and give their loved one’s. What for? Expressing how much you love a person through giving them a card and a box of chocolates?
I know, Christmas is now already four weeks ago! (Wow, time is going by so fast!) But I really want to share these lovely gifts I got – gifts that warm the heart of any crafter!
I just started knitting – and got a huge bunch of knitting and crocheting supplies.
And buttons. I love buttons!
I love my new cutting board! It’s also perfect for tracing patterns. I started reading the pattern fitting book and have to say, it’s really good. I totally recommend it. In the next weeks I’ll write a few reviews of the sewing and pattern making books I use!
My passion for Photoshop got out of hand today. Here are some free Valentine’s Day Cards I made for you to download and print.
Just right click on the picture you want, save and print. It’s as easy as that.
I left some blank, so you can simply enter your own text with Photoshop, Word or handwritten.
If you have any questions on how I made these, do ask! I’d be happy to help.
Feel free to leave a comment before or after downloading. – I’d love to know what your favourites ones are!
I finally wrapped up all the presents. This year I used handmade gift tags.
I printed the picture/text I wanted to be on the tags on white cotton. One could also just plain white paper, but cotton looks much nicer. I got the picture from Two Things In Common.
I glued the cotton cut-outs on green paper and embellished the gift tags with gold thread.

This is a perfect treat for everyone who isn’t very fond of chocolate!
All you need:
– a small glass bottle with a cork
– olive oil
– fresh herbs (rosemary/thyme)
#1 make sure the bottle is clean!
#2 wash the herbs and put them into the bottle
#3 pour the olive oil into the bottle
#4 cork it up
#5 posh it up with ribbon or a cute label
PS: The oil should rest a few days before use!
