everyday valentine's and my blog candy
I made this set of mini Valentine's a little while ago using Papertrey Ink's adorable Tiny Treats: Valentine and Simple Valentine. I just thought that it would be so fun and sweet if you could just tuck one of these into your loved ones' wallet or lunch bag as a little surprise. After all, we should be showing and sharing our love everyday and every way we can, right? =)
Talking about sharing some love. I have my first blog candy for you today!! This is a hand blown glass candy jar that I made for my second semester glassblowing class a few years ago when I was in collenge. I also made that little scoop out of hot molten glass. The yummy Jelly Bellies were there for the photography session and for all my classmates that were there that day! I made some classic candies (Jelly Belly, candy cane, gummy bear, etc) out of Fimo to decorate it. And no, I am not giving it away. =)
Here is the real candy:
Here is a list of what's included:
- Cosmo Cricket's Material Girl Mini Deck
- Memory Box's Spearmint 6x6 paper pack
- Happy mini stamp set from BasicGrey
- Love mini stamp set from BasicGrey
- Cherrish mini stamp from Imaginisce
- An assortment of crochet flowers made using PTI color coordinated embroidery floss and matching PTI buttons
- The Do Me A Favor treat box used to hold the crochet flowers and buttons
- The crochet doily that I used for displaying them
- My set of six mini everyday valentine's
- This card
I used this simple pattern to make the crochet flowers. Here is the chart that I used for PTI coordinated DMC colors. I am planning on making a few more flowers to add to the collection. I may also add more things to the list as I go.
This is just a little thank you for all your support over the past few months for visiting my blog daily and for leaving me your love. There were definitely times when I was seriously doubting myself (like now), if not for your sweet comments I wouldn't be here. I am so grateful to have you all by my side! =)
All you need to do is leave me a comment here on this post for a chance to win this candy. I would love it if you can spread the word, but it's not required. This candy will be open until March 13th at 11:59 PM PST and I will announce the winner in my post on the 14th. Good luck!
The reason for this giveaway, you ask? Because it's my birthday! =)
To sign off today, this is Sakura (because she is the color of pale pink like the cherry blossoms) sipping a cup of hot tea after her ramen dinner! And she stays with me, too! =)
Hope you all have a happy happy weekend!!
