Valentine’s Day

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Valentine’s Day is all about love, lovers, cards and so much more…

Here at Christmas in July we want to know what offerings you have to Cupid and a little about the item.

Roses Workshop from RosesWorkshop  says I love roses, but they don’t bloom naturally in February in the UK. I have created one that will last all year long, and packaged it in a perfect little heart-shaped gift box.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio  said To me, chocolate is a big part of Valentine’s day. It’s a must-have all year long, every day!! (in my dreams). Dangle a good piece of chocolate in front of me and I have been known to change my mind.

Marjorie Scenna from mscenna states red hearts are symbolic of Valentine’s Day and a heart shaped gift is perfect. This red one of a kind glass beaded key chain is a great gift idea!

Lia Russo from Ghirlandiamo discusses how On Valentine’s Day people generally buy gifts or flowers: that’s very nice, but l think there are also other ways to celebrate this romantic day.

l prepared these tiny wreaths with hearts thinking of an intimate romantic dinner and a smart table set with little, particular accents, like napkin holders.

Carola Bartz from CarolaBartz says I love to remember my daughter when she still went to elementary school and each child brought little Valentines for the classroom Valentine party. I always made mini cards and then my daughter would sit at the table and write the names of her classmates on the cards. She was so concentrated on the job, the tip of her tongue wandered from one corner of her mouth to the other. She was happy when she was done and hadn’t messed up.

Ina from InaSudjana states that Love should be celebrated every.single.day. So we should really have valentines day every day! Appreciating our loved ones daily, appreciating our friends and appreciating everything that we have really.
Here’s one wall hanging that can help us remember to celebrate love!

Melissa R from missy69 says I am still very new to wood burning, but I wanted to make a few things for Valentines Day. This is just a simple wooden picture block, with Calla Lilies, Roses, and hearts wood burned to the block. There is a spot for personalizing, too.

Wendy CN from CardNotions discusses that this is a humorous Valentine’s Day card inspired by a Fushia and Chartruse sea anemone photo I took years ago. Just a little Photoshopping created a lovely anemone heart for the front of the card! (Did you notice the little hermit crab in the front photo?)

Next, I thought about how other sea creatures might say “I Love You”. Surely, they would need to spell it out with their bodies. So, when the card is opened, a jelly fish in the shape of an “I”, an octopus holding a red heart, and an eel in the shape of an “U” pop forth in bright colors to say “I love you”.

Evelyn and Lucy from artsyEve states I think this quilt would be perfect for Valentine’s day–perhaps for a February baby or for an older friend to use as a lap quilt. It’s beautifully made with appliqued hearts–perfect for Valentine’s Day!

Mandi Leighs from leighswiccanboutique says Love is in the air and valentines day is just around the corner fast approaching. Why not go out of the normal and get her something that not only smells fantastic but is equally beautiful as well. This candle holder was created from found materials to create this unique piece adorn with crystal Quartz, Emerald, Black Onyx and Agate. Filled with a unique of Dragons Blood and Wine. The best part is once this candle is gone the holder is reusable with your favorite tealights or votive candles. A gift that can be used over and over again.

Woolly Momo from WoollyMomo  states that I think giving your loved one the gift of warmth and comfort is once of the nicest things you can give them.

Valentine’s Day is always so cold here in London and so, in keeping with the red theme of Valentine’s Day, I knit this lovely red hat in a soft and cozy wool to keep a lover warm as the go out and about to celebrate with their much loved other half!
