show some love with these Valentine’s Day DIYs!

Valentine’s Day is coming in like a freight train, and as we prepare for the big day at the flower shop I’m thinking ahead for sweet homemade gifts for C and my friends. Here are some of my favorites scoured from the internets… There are few things that make my husband happier than a six pack. Dress up a case of your Valentine’s favorite brew (or soda!) with craft paper, ribbon, and a homemade tag.…

I have a big list of DIY inspirations I’m hoping to find time for when things slow down at the shop this summer. In the meantime, I thought I’d knock the dust off of my top five DIY posts from way back when, and give them a second shot at…

Another fun project that Anne and I tackled during our crafting night, inspired by a recent fruit + veggie stamping post by A Beautiful Mess. I picked up a 3-pack of natural canvas tote bags a while ago to design some cute carry-alls. They were a bit smaller than I’d hoped, but they’re perfect as a lunch bag or for carrying my planner and a couple of notebooks back and forth from the shop. For some…
