Valentine Towel DIY>

Hello Beautiful People,


Valentines Day is next week and I have an easy DIY for you. I needed just a touch of  decor and also wanted to give my mother and mother in law both a small gift. These are both practical and cute so why not?

Let’s get started.

 Material list-

I used the freezer paper to cover my work surface and the tape to secure it. The knife is to make your potato stamp.

First cut the potato in half. Next trace out your shape on paper, cut it out, then place on potato. I did a heart on each piece, one big and one small. Carefully trace around the shape with the tip of the knife. Cut the extra off around the edge and you have a stamp! You might need to pat it dry on a paper towel before you dip it in paint.

Here I just did a row of hearts using the tape to keep them in line.

I used the medium round sponge brush to do the letters and the large stamp for the O.

This towel I just did two red stripes with a narrow gold stripe in between. I wasn’t to picky about bleeding through or the lines being real straight. It gives it more of a rustic look.

The towel on the left I stamped red with the big stamp and gold with the small one. Now just let them dry and run them through the wash to soften them up.

Now you can give some as gifts and still have some for yourself. Enjoy!

Easy Valentines Candy

Hello Beautiful People,

Happy Valentines Day! I made a few valentine treats for my family and they seemed to enjoy them. These are easy and fast with very little mess so it’s perfect for a busy mom. You could make these up real quick while the kids are in bed or even do it as a project together.

Let’s get started.

Ingredient List-  

You can get all these things at the grocery store or click  on any of the underlined products to go to Amazon.

White melting wafers

Chocolate chips


Pretzel rods


Coconut (optional)

Red food coloring


Lollipop sticks

Freezer or wax paper

Above is a picture of a super easy way to melt chocolate. Just put the chocolate in a heat resistant container and place in hot water in the crockpot. Turn the crockpot on high and it will melt as you prepare the strawberries.

Next cut the tops of these and stick lollipop sticks into them. I was going for heart shaped here but after the chocolate was on they didn’t reall turn out like I wanted. (See it’s real life over here.)

I thought this was pretty (yah I’m weird like that).

At this point I sort of got caught up in it and didn’t take many pics but just dip your pretzels and strawberries in the chocolate then add sprinkles, coconut, or whatever else you like. I tinted a bit of the white to pink and drizzled it over some of them. Put them on the paper, let them cool (if you can wait).
