love is in the air. the holiday of pink and white and red has come once more to my garden walk. in celebration of my garden's second anniversary as well as welcoming 300 lovely visitors in my garden, I have the delightful pleasure to host a small little, valentines-inspired giveaway {which 'twill be the beginning of many to come this month}.
when the valentine season comes around, the first thought that enters my mind is :: crafts. lace. ribbon. cardstock. glitter. doilies. and my mind swims with the new crafting possibilities. :)

of course, every crafter must have the right supplies, thus I am excited to present that the first of these giveaways includes an eclectic arrangement of simple and sweet to extend your crafting collection this Valentine's season...

  18. Valentines day... oh, I like it a lot.
    I'll tell you one thing a private girl's school near us does.
    Since there are only girl's in this private girl's school, boys from the private boys school *visit* the girls at the school and give them roses! It's a tradition! Isn't that lovely?

  29. For Valentines our Mom usually just buys us a little box of candy hearts. When we were littler we used to get a little present along with it, but now we just get the candy hearts, and occasionally make a special dinner. :)

  34. I spend Valentine's Day simply and sweetly with my family! We exchange gifts and cards and tell each other all day long how much we love each other! We also eat plenty of little sweet treats (chocolates being my favorite)!!!
    My favorite washi tapes from cute tape are the floral, oldbook, and red pattern. My favorite items from Yiskah Knits are the Grey and Burgundy Knitted Bow Fingerless Gloves and the Burgundy Heart.
