Started and completed while watching the Brazil v/s Chile world cup match on Friday – this adorable baby dress in sherbet green and pale cotton candy pink acrylic yarn. It’s perfect for a newborn little girl (and oh how summery and girly it is!). I’ll be making a hat and booties to match, to make a full set for my etsy store.

Homemade Valentines

Here in Ireland, they celebrate Valentine’s day differently than the states. Basically, it’s a day for couples – and not so much the day where you show appreciation for everyone that you love.

In the spirit of America’s “kids”, I decided to make some homemade Valentines for my colleagues at work. The goal was to make them as punny/cheesy as possible because they’d all heard of “school” style Valentines Day from having watched the Simpsons. (I choo-choo-choose you, Valentine.) I also included some candy hearts with each one, and would like to think that it made them smile at the corny-ness of it all.

Without further adieu, the Valentines – made out of cardstock, decorations, and my own sad sense of humor.

“Valentine, I Dig You!”
“Bee Mine”

“Valentine You’re a Star!”

Valentine I’m Falling For You!
No Bones About it – You’re My Valentine!
Daisies just wouldn’t be the same without you, Valentine!
Valentine – You set My Heart A “flutter”.

Here’s hoping your Valentine’s was as filled with love as mine!
