I remember one of the rare occasions I received a Valentine’s day gift.
I know, you’re shocked, right? Surely, someone as stunning as me should be taking the morning of the 14th February off work so I can await the postman and his overstuffed sack of mail just for me!
Truth is, even the card from my Dad (who I could always count on) stopped a few years ago.
Anyway, Once upon a time I received a rose, left anonymously on my front door.
Men are strange fellows!
Seriously, if you’re going to pretend to visit my brother and act surprised that I got a rose from a secret admirer, which you happen to find when you arrived…
…Don’t buy the flower from my sister’s florist shop!
I’ve recently been making a series of mini craft kits designed for beginners.
Each kit comes in a small gift box, so the finished item can be given in the presentation box as a present.
I’ve made a couple of animal brooches (more on their way)
They come with almost everything you need to make the finished brooch, you’ll need scissors and maybe a pencil.
My latest kit though is perfect for lucky crafters this Valentine’s Day.
It comes with all the materials you need (Yep, you need to provide your scissors and a pencil) to make your very own Valentine’s day brooch.
The tiny wool-blend hand-stitched envelope is a brooch your loved one can wear, and hidden inside is a hand stitched love message just from you.
What a wonderful way to celebrate the season of love…
…and if any of my family are reading this, hint at my dad that I want my card!
