The one with Valentine's day

This is a repost of a DIY I posted back in 2013. This is my most viewed post, and was featured on sites like Readers Digest and
Because today is Valentine's day, I am posting this one again. Why? Because I think Valentine's day shouldn't have to be about fancy, expensive gifts and I wanted to show you that it's super easy to make a gift yourself. And what says I love you more, than a cute little DIY? This project only costed me a plate and a Sharpie (the one that has 'paint' written on it) that I already had. Besides that, all you need is a little bit of time!

Start by making ovals

Make triangles

Don't forget to bake your plate for half an hour at 150ºC / 300ºF
I do my dishes the old fashioned way, but once baked, it should
be dishwasher-proof.

To make it more fancy, you can wrap it up with some homemade cookies, or some of your loved ones favourite chocolates.You can find more DIY projects over here.

The one with the things I liked in january

Carrot cake made by E. and an afternoon of handlettering 

We had quite the storm in January, and these poor trees didn't survive 

Love seeing #asundaycarpics over at Instagram 

New in our brick and mortar shop are these magnets

Some colour on a grey day, I treated myself to some purple tulips

Working on some new cards
