So I have been a busy bee behidn the scenes, getting everything ready for Valentines Day which, I'm not gonna lie, is probably my favourite holiday in terms of designing products and making DIYs! It's the perfect excuse to indulge my love of all things pink, sparkly, kitsch and a bit over the top! Below are a few little sneak peeks at some new products, things that will be included in the extremely awesome Valentines themed goodie boxes, plus a few DIY projects I've been working on which will be on the blog in the next few weeks.
dinky 'message in a bottle' kits which will be in the goodie boxes - my favourite part is the teeny glittery triangles I had left over from cutting out the tags to tie on the bottles. I couldn't bear to throw them away. Each bottle will have a roll of paper inside to write a love note on.
the glittery fabric also will be used for a DIY tutorial, showing how to make some super quick and easy no sew Valentine decorations (it's hard to tell in the photo but those embroidery hoops are actually dinky - only 3" wide. Apparently Valentines also makes me obsessed with things in miniature!)
sadly I can't claim to have made these arrows, but they will be the prize in one of many giveaways I'm running over Valentines (because Valentines is all about love, and boy do I love you guys)
playing around with ideas for packaging and little added extras to pop in with all online orders over Valentines - and yes, those envelopes are made using wrapping paper customised with my instagram photos (more info on that to follow!) Also, how cute are the (again, tiny!) muslin drawstring bags - I couldn't find a pale pink fabric paint, so used normal acrylic paint and I love how they turned out
And finally, a look at some of the jewellery that will be in goodie boxes and in my Etsy shop - these pieces are all SUPER limited edition, and feature vintage Valentines imagery.
The goodie boxes will be launching on Tuesday 27th January at 7pm in my Etsy shop - there will only be 25 boxes available, and you will get four pieces of jewellery, a message in a bottle kit, plus a whole load of stickers/postcards/other goodies all for just £20! And of course everything will be beautifully wrapped and presented in Valentines themed packaging. If you want to order and send it direct to someone else, we will even hand write a little love note for you!
Our Valentines jewellery will be available to buy in our Etsy shop from Wednesday 28th January - all pieces are limited edition and once they are gone we won't be producing any more, so get them while you can! Of course as well as these pieces we have our permanent range of heart jewellery, including heart collar clips, and heart necklaces, available in a range of colours, some of which are glittery!
