Have a heart for valentines day ♥


My pad is full to bursting with hearts, so I figured I’d share them with you guys since it’s valentines an all!

  • One of my faves is little puffed hearts. I like to attach mine to jar lids and granny squares. You just need to crochet two hearts, stuff them and sew together.
  • Then there is a dead cute idea for a heart twig tree from lucy’s blog at attic24. (you can find great heart patterns and instructions here too)
  • I also love my little beaded heart garland, and what about a sweet cross-stitch message in a cute frame?

I’ve also snuck in a peak at my latest tea cosy, I’m thinking of replacing the pom-pom with a massive heart. Yet more proof that I’m bonkers!

Shogatsu! Japanese New Year postcards


This is such a cute idea that we got from my daughters brownie book!

In Japan at new year, people send special postcards to their friends and family, to say thank you for their help in the past year.

It’s a really sweet way to say thank you to loved ones, and the kids had great fun making some for their grandparents.
