    Valentine's Day Gifts, Crafting and Decorating


    DIY Candy Stands

    What is better than indulging in the delicious treats that Valentine's Day brings us?  It is the joy of creating a pretty display to make it even more inviting!  My personal favorite is the red polka dot double decker serving plate . . . isn't it clever and cute??  I love it!



    The Crafting Chicks are always finding awesome bloggers with cool creations!  Guest blogger Abby from A Feathered Nest shares her DIY Candy Stands for Valentine's Day.  

    With a little imagination, you can turn dollar store or thrift store items into awesome treasures!



    This cute "Jar of Love" from Amanda's blog, City Girl Gone Coastal, is one of the most awesome ideas I have seen for Valentine's Day . . . or any day.

    I love finding new and unique ideas for using all those glass jars I refuse to throw away . . . check out the label 'glass jars' for my other posts on creative uses for glass jars.

    Click on the photo for Amanda's post on this thoughtful gift that answers the question "I love you because . . . ."


    Thank you Amanda!
