I wanted to try something fun and different this season; so I got thinking, and remembered some old origami I learned as a child. And so I decided to make some no sew felt love heart decorations! Perfect for Valentine’s or just because!
Instead of sewing these; which is -of course- an option; I used some glue, felt and other bits and pieces from my craft stash, to make some cute handmade decorations. I also quite like the idea of layering these, to be able to use vinyl to decorate them! Perhaps some other time!

It’s love season, and I couldn’t resist digging into my stash to make some pretty scrap fabric hoop art! I chose a simple heart design, to keep this DIY project quick and easy to make!
Everything I used for this project was from my craft stash, and would make great home decor, or a fun handmade gift, for Valentines, Mother’s Day or even for birthdays, new babies, weddings and anniversaries! Changing up the colours alone makes this an incredibly versatile project.

Something I really wanted to do this year; was make some His and Hers Valentines mugs using my Cricut, and some vinyl. This was quite easy to achieve, and I already had the perfect font on my laptop.
I’ve said before that we don’t really take Valentine’s Day very seriously as a couple; earlier this week; Stu picked me up a new toothbrush and joked he was tempted to give it to me on Sunday… But as it’s so cold at the moment I came up with the perfect gift; (which clearly is going to be seen a bit early!).

I was having a think this week about Happy Mail; and given the time of year, and the current situation here in the UK; it made me think of what Valentines gifts (or “galentines” etc etc) you could send in the post.
So I thought I’d do a little post sharing some ideas, great if you wanted to step away from the simple flowers and chocolates, or even if you were just looking for ideas to send something nice to a special friend!
And as a bonus I’m also sharing a super cute and easy craft idea anyone can do, for almost any occasion!

When coming up with Valentines craft ideas, I wanted to take the opportunity to try some new things; and do something a little different. With that in mind; I thought I’d try my hand at decorating these cute wooden hanging hearts; which you can find in most craft supply shops.
In this post I’m going to share four hanging hearts, decorated three different ways.
There’s also a tiny cross-stitch update right at the bottom of the post too!

As a reminder, I’ve never attempted bullet journaling before. But having tried scrapbooking (a lot); something between scrapping and art journaling; and even just having a planner last year(!) I thought it was time I gave it a go! In this post I’m sharing my February 2021 setup…
I got my journal for around £10 on Amazon, from Stationery Island, I actually got a kit which came with a ruler, some stickers (yay) and a pen.
