Last week, I made some heart valentines for my nephews and niece (well, the ones who are old enough to know what Valentine's Day is and aren't likely to swallow small toys, anyway).
this tutorial from the Purl bee, only instead of filling with candy, I included some tiny toy treasures (pictured here: a metal knight I brought back from the Tower of London years ago and a blue bear pencil topper).
In other news, I will be shipping out a heart garland today to a lucky someone who ordered it from my shop. It feels good to spread so much love around. ;)
Have you guys made any valentines yet? If you have, leave a link in the comments. I'd love to check them out!
*Whenever I hear "pink and pink," it makes me think, "My colors are blush and bashful" from Steel Magnolias. Anyone else remember that movie? It's one of those films I saw when I was very young so I can't even evaluate whether it is a good movie or not, but certain lines and scenes will probably stick with me forever.
