The UK Handmade Valentine's Day showcase!
Some exceedingly gorgeous handmade gifts - this is just a screenshot of the top of this great showcase! (note our Craft Blog UK give-away winner in pride of place top left! Congrats Welsh Egg Designs!)
Valentines day above all is the one day of the year where we should try and go that little bit further to find something unique to give. If you received garage flowers or a mass produced teddy bear from a high street card shop last year, it's about time you sent out some serious hints!
This is the link. I know there are probably not many of us that would email a 'want' list to our partners. So in the spirit of 'sharing the love' copy and paste and email it to any potential offenders you know, brother in laws, best mates other halves, dads, grandads, sons! (sorry for the blatant sexism chaps - if you read my blog it's unlikely you need any kind of help in this department and are most definitely an excellent catch ;)
