Valentine’s Day link love

Thanks for being kind with your comments about my floor yesterday. I know it isn’t for everyone and I appreciate you saying so many great things whether it is a look you like or not.


I have been seeing so many great Valentine’s Day ideas lately that I thought I’d share a few links with you today. The first is a simple ‘Have a Heart’ strings by Dottie Angel. You can visit her post for the tutorial. If anyone would like to purchase me a spot at her workshop in England this summer, I will happily accept your offer. This was a fast and simple project…and it just looks festive without being overboard.


The second link is to Design Aglow where I am sharing two Valentine ideas today: Comic Strip Photo Bunting & the best kind of Valentine Crush.

And some other crafty links:
