Handmade With Love: Easy DIY Valentine's Heart Soap



My husband is not a sweet kinda guy. I'm mean, he's very sweet as a husband, he just doesn't like eating sweet things. So my baking cookies or cakes on Valentine's Day is wasted on him. This is why handmade, cute, scented, sparkly, heart-shaped LOVE soap is the perfect DIY gift for him!

But if the words handmade soap sound scary, then fear not - I'm using 'Melt and Pour' Soap base, so it's super quick and easy! ;)

Every morning I bring my husband tea in bed. Can't really remember when it started, but that's how we roll. 
He loves tea. And love him. So that's probably why...

Anyways, this Valentine's I decided to serve a little extra sweetness along with the tea.

Spread The Cookie Love



There's nothing more loving in my view than a box of homemade, edible delights. I mean, taking the time to say "I Love You" or "You Matter" with a box of sugary things, makes for a pretty special gift, don't think?! :)

Our contributor Gillian from Crumbs of Comfort Cake Design thinks so too. Check out her recipe for the most pretty and scrumptious Valentine's Heart Cookies below.

Valentine's Heart Lollipops using Candy Canes




I'm a sucker for easy recipes (pun intended) and there's nothing easier than these Valentine's Heart Lollipops - Wait for it...Made with left over candy canes from Christmas! How cool is that?! :)

I saw the idea a while back on Pinterest, and just had to try it - We always get tons of candy cane left over from Christmas and this is also the perfect way to use them up! 

My kids got involved in the making of course, and fun was had all round - Bonus, for when you're stuck indoors due to cold weather! ;)

How to Make Homemade Marshmallows + Recipe




Following on from my posts last week on styling a Hot Cocoa Bar here and here, I thought it would really be handy to share a recipe on how to make lHomemade Marshmallows! ;)

I know you may be thinking - "Why the heck would I want to make my own marshmallows" - Well, I thought that too...BEFORE I made them!! The taste for starters, is beyond dreamy (and quite addictive). Plus, it's a real fun thing to make (with or without kids).  AND if that wasn't enough to convince you, making your own marshmallows means you can color them and cut them in any shape you like to match your party theme and colors perfectly! ;)

"Hello again Bird! Your printables are so gorgeous. ...feel proud that you put a smile on so many peoples faces.  Just looking at all your gorgeous designs and pics gives me a lift!"

Last Minute Valentine's Party Ideas





I had a small surprise tea party for my girls to celebrate Valentine's Day. My oldest daughter's  birthday is on Valentine's day so most of the time we overlook Valentine's Day. This year was different, we had a Valentine's party for their girlfriends but I wanted to do something just for us! 

Hope you enjoy, and can find some last minute inspiration for your own Valentine's Day Celebrations!
