Love: Valentine's Day Handmade Card

When looking for Valentine's Day cards and gifts inspiration, where else but Martha Stewart?
She has a whole list of craft projects, gift ideas and awesome clipart. Just the Handmade list is 44 items long. 44! And they are not all complex, requiring days of work.

See example below:

Like these unique cards. Don't worry, clip art provided.

This is so easy, even kids can do it. Perfect for kids to send to their mothers.

This is the one I'm planning to do. I love how sweet and simple this is.

And here is my version below!

I added in some sweet mementoes of our time together and practised my typography a little haha. It was really easy to make, took no time at all and The Hubs loved it. Success!

Lust : Gorgeous handmade furniture from SlowWood

I'm back!
Yes finally I have the mood to blog, mainly spurred by the Pin-fest I had the other day. I went back to view my favourite home and design blogs and the Better Homes and Gardens webbie. And I got sooo inspired! I pinned like a whole lot of gorgeous pics and got re-pinned a lot too, hehe.

Check out my board here. For our Future Nest

Anyway the photos I couldn't stop thinking about are the ones i found on decor8.

Don't you just love this table?? This is from SlowWood, designed and handmade in the Netherlands. They use natural finishes and mineral paint so it's all very earth-friendly!

This is my favourite piece. Love the simplicity of it and I know it'll look fantastic in a corner of our living room as a small desk for mail and bills. But it's soooo expensive. I'll just drool over them until The Hubs magically gets super talented with the hammer and saw and make me one.
