Valentine's Day

If you're a long time follower of our blog, you may remember a post I did last year about great Valentine's Day projects for your sweetie (or for yourself! :)). Since then we've received some new great projects that are perfect for Valentine's Day. They don't require much finishing, and in some cases, you can finish them yourself!

Similar to the couple of the projects we had last year, this year we once again asked our custom painter to create a couple heart shaped canvases that can fit into heart shaped paperweights we have. The finishing is so simple that if you're so inclined, you can do it yourself! You basically just slide the finished piece in and voila, you're done! One of our new designs is a sweet and simple phrase canvas similar to the heart candies you get for Valentine's Day. You can see it above with the paperweight on top to give you an idea of what it will look like finished. Below is the other piece Jia created. I love it. The swirly branches with heart shaped petals surrounding the phrase "Be Mine" really complete this piece.

We had the Kathy Schenkel trunk show in November and December. There was a whole series of bauble ornaments among the many fabulous canvases from that show. She has entire lines for all of the holidays, including Valentine's day. We have ones with hearts with arrows through them, a "bee mine", and One that says "I Heart (with a heart symbol) U" You Can see each of them below.

"Conversation Hearts"

"Be Mine"

"Valentine Hearts"

Each of them comes with a bead pack and instructions on how to finish them. They're really sweet gifts and look great finished!

All of these projects are great because they are quick, and you can potentially finish them yourself. Of course we also offer finishing services, so if you want us to finish one for you, we can do that as well.

Valentine's is a fun holiday, and it's nice to know that there are small projects that are pretty quick and easy and would be great gifts. Let us know if you like any of these or have any questions!
