Valentine’s Day

Our Handmade Valentine’s

I’ve grown to become really fond of Valentine’s Day, now that we’re a little family. Art and I always manage to spend a little special time together, either before or after the actual day, but for the past few years, we’ve made it a day to spend special time together as a family. This year […]

Dark Chocolate Shortbread Heart Cookies

I love a good shortbread cookie, and if it’s covered in dark chocolate, even more reason to celebrate. I love the mix of the savory buttery flavor, mixed with the sweetness of the dark chocolate, a perfect combination if you ask me.  So when I saw that Trader Joe’s had once again, brought back those […]

DIY Floral Chandelier

Hello there friends. Today I’d like to introduce you to a new contributor, Alix Adams of A Ruffled Life, who will be sharing DIY  and craft projects with us, on a regular basis. I met Alix last year at Alt Summit, and we’ve stayed in contact over the past year, only to be reconnected again […]

All You Need Is Love Free Printable

I have a couple of girlfriends, as well as my mom, who are quite good at sending off nice little handwritten notes and cards to loved ones. Be it a special occasion or just to say hi, receiving one of these cards via snail mail always makes my day and makes me feel quite special. […]

DIY Giant Ombre Hearts

Hello and happy Monday friends. I’m back from Alt, and still recovering from late nights, but feel semi-back to normal. I left inspired and determined to change some things, which will inevitably lead to some changes around here, but changes I think we will all be happy with. At least I hope so. At any […]

DIY Giant Cupid’s Arrows

Last week when Taylor and I were at the mall, I fell in love with the Paper Source windows.  They had multiple gigantic ombre hearts hung all about, and two large arrows intersected the hearts.  They were just about the cutest things I’d seen in a very long time, and I immediately texted Miranda a […]

DIY Painted Heart Jeans

It doesn’t look like brightly colored denim is going away anytime soon, especially for the little ones, and so I bought another pair for Taylor last week when Target had them on sale for $12 each. I originally planned to have her just wear them as is, but was struck by a bit of inspiration […]

DIY Neon Valentine’s

I’d be honored if you’d consider “liking” my Facebook page, or subscribing to my RSS Feed. Or better yet, receive some Love straight to your inbox by entering your email in that box to the right! Love is way better than junk mail! As I was punching out hearts for my paper chains the other […]

The Wall Of Affirmations

This past week saw the rise and fall of big plans for Valentine’s Day crafting; with a husband out of town, unpacking after Alt, and then 2 sick boys, crafting took a backseat. I did have a chance to get out of the house on Friday night and visit Danni’s new free standing shop, Oh […]

DIY Ombre Tote Bags

This tutorial was originally published in January 2012 on my old blog, Four Flights Of Fancy.  All this week I will be adding my most popular DIY’s from Four Flights onto For the Love Of.  I hope you like the new to this space content! I’ve had some plain canvas totes taking up space in […]
